“Some of my TikTok followers said they would have bought all their dresses from cheap fast fashion companies like Shein to save money,” she wrote. “It’s true that I certainly didn’t have to spend thousands of dollars, but it was important to me that my fashion choices showcase a diverse group of designers.”

“The amount of each Single contestants’ spending probably varies a lot, but I don’t let my investments go to waste,” she explained. “I’ll always make good use of beauty products, and I plan to reuse or donate the dazzling dresses.”
