What are the chances Bachelor fans will ignore rumors of Ben Flajnik's engagement to Courtney Robertson until the show's March 12 finale? Well, if they were slim before, now they're zero. Not only did the world prematurely learn weeks ago that Ben picked the controversial contestant over finalist Lindzi Cox, but now Robertson has been spotted trying on wedding gowns in LA.
The 28-year-old model dropped into designer Mark Zunino's Beverly Hills showroom yesterday, selecting a strapless mermaid gown adorned with floral appliques (above) and a second style featuring a high slit à la Angelina Jolie at this year's Oscars. (See this season's sexiest slit gowns.) While witnesses reported seeing Robertson later leave the salon with a garment bag in-hand, it's unclear which one of the gowns was inside. One thing we can be sure of, however, is that once the finale confirms what the everyone already knows, Robertson can start wearing her Neil Lane engagement ring in public—within sight of large windows and photographers, of course.
