Bachelor Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell officially called it quits on their relationship this week, but that doesnt mean the split wasnt a long time coming.
In fact, the reality stars are wasting no time moving on with their lives and diving headfirst into separate projects both of which are inevitableproducts of their Bachelor fame.
Of her post-breakup plans, she told PeopleStyle,
Im moving back to SoCal. Thats where my life was before the show my friends, my siblings. I love the beach, the healthy lifestyle and the energy that Los Angeles has to offer. Im definitely a SoCal girl at heart!
The 27-year-old former flight attendant already had her first modeling gig: a photo shoot for Van De Vorts summer collection.
The trendy San Diego boutique has long been a favorite of Bushnell, who became friends with the owner, Andrea, and used her as a stylist in recent months.
Speaking on the collaboration, Bushnell revealed,
I have shopped at Van De Vort for awhile, even before my time on Their styles are on trend and easy to wear. Andrea, who is a fantastic stylist, and I became fast friends. She helps me put together pieces for brunch with friends or award shows and special appearances.
Bushnell was joinedby BFF and fellow Bachelor contestant Amanda Stanton for the shoot, which took place atCoachella Valleys La Quinta hotel.
The owner,Andrea Van De Vort, toldPeopleStyle,
In my opinion, they were both the best dressed on their season on when they were both vying for Bens attention. It was natural for me to reach out to Lauren and Amanda for this shoot because they wear our clothes perfectly already. When Lauren and I became friends, and then Amanda and she became such good friends, it made sense to shoot them together since they were so on brand with Van De Vort.
Theres an obvious benefitto havingTV personalities with large social followings model your clothes, but I have to admit both Bushnell and Stanton look like naturals in these photos.
It certainly looks like this wont be the last time we see Bushnell. She may have lefther reality star life (temporarily? You cant convince me she wont appear in some way on a Bachelor franchise) with the breakup, but shes definitely looking to catapult back into the spotlight with herfashion career.
I would love to get even better [at modeling] with some real training to continue doing fun lookbook shoots like this one. Its hard to call it work when youre getting to dress up in cute clothes, get your hair and makeup done and get to go to fun locations with a group of inspiring women who are involved in the shoot.
She also said shed love to start her own fashion line in the future.
It looks like Bushnell even has the support of ex-fiance Ben Higgins at least for now.In exclusive excerpts from his new podcast, Higgins shared,
I believe that Lauren and I both will come out of this with a whole new season that is going to be very good for the both of us.
If theres one thing Bachelor Nation is good for, its launching careers.
