Angie Kent's Bachelorette Finale Dress Looked Very Different On The Runway

Angie Kent's finale dress, designed by Steven Khalil, was every inch of perfection and we need to talk about it. 

The gown, which first appeared on a Steven Khalil runway during the iconic designer's showcase of his 2014 couture collection, was hand picked for Angie Kent by stylist, Kim Hurwitz.

While Carlin was the owner of Angie's heart in the end -- her dress, with its delicate silver beading over a sheer fabric, constructed shoulders and stunning cutouts -- was just as much a winner on Thursday night.

"When Angie first tried on this gown, it fit her like a glove and hugged all the right places straight away," Kim Hurwitz told 10 daily.

The gown is sexy, elegant and timeless and we both just knew straight away we had found her perfect dress!

Kim, who dressed Angie in her stunning outfits for the entire Bachelorette season, helped Angie step out of her comfort zone when it came to her clothing selection.

"I wasn’t sure because I’m not a tight wearing person and I was quite self conscious. But then I trusted her [Kim] more, I trusted myself more and I fully just embraced it," Angie told 10 daily.

The finale was held in Elements of Byron Bay, a luxury beachfront resort filled with amazing villas, with a beautiful nearby rainforest trail on the grounds of the resort.

Kim said given the location, she loved the idea of the contrast between a heavily embellished gown gliding through the beautiful green backdrop of nature.

"When the dress caught the natural sunlight, it sparkled and it really did look and feel quite magical," Kim said, with the gown being paired with earrings there were also from designer Steven Khalil.

To reality TV fans, Angie Kent is a familiar face, having appeared on 'Gogglebox' and I'm a 'Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!'

Angie wore her hair down in soft tousled waves, complementing her subtle nude makeup which was impeccably done by celebrity hair and makeup artist, Helen Dowsley.

Kim explained that the gown, which was ready  to wear, didn't need to be altered for Angie aside from having the length taken up a little.

When the gown originally appeared on the runway in 2014, it had minimal lining under the layer of embellishments, making it very sheer as it glided down the runway.

Yet when the gown then appeared in the 2015 couture campaign, a delicate nude undergarment was added from the waist to just above the knee, the same version of the dress Angie wore.

As a popular wedding dress designer, Khalil's wedding gowns tend to start from $15,000.
