Why the 'Bachelorette' Stars Wanted to Burn Their Costumes After Filming

Posted on

Even celebrities have to learn to get dressed on a dime.

While Bachelorette boasts some high-wattage stars, the indie film was done on a relatively low budget. That doesn’t mean the actresses — Kirsten Dunst, Isla Fisher and Lizzy Caplan — skimped on their wardrobes, though.

“I actually asked Chanel to lend me a bag and a watch for the movie because [my character] Reagan’s very put together,” Dunst told PEOPLE Thursday at the Los Angeles premiere of the comedy, which hits theaters Sept. 7 and is currently available on iTunes and Video on Demand.

Because the film takes place predominately during the night before a wedding, most of the cast members were in the same outfits for much of the two-month shoot. For Dunst, that meant wearing a high-neck dress almost daily to reflect her character’s “type-A personality.”

“I always pay attention to what feels right for my character and she is a little tight,” Dunst said.

In contrast, Fisher’s party-girl character, Katie, required a quite different look.

“Katie is very trashy. She wears the shortest, tightest, trashiest thing that I could wear,” the star said of her super-sexy Dolce & Gabbana wardrobe. “They kindly dressed me for the movie — even down to my underwear. Those guys know how to make a woman look great.”

But sometimes, there is too much of a good thing — and that same rule applies to fashion.

“After wearing that dress for a month and a half I [never] wanted to see it again,” Fisher said. Dunst agreed. “Once you wear anything in a film,” she said, “by the time you’re done with it you want to burn it.”
