On tonight’s episode of The Bachelorette, Ali Fedotowsky hits the Big Apple for hot dates and an exclusive InStyle photoshoot!  The California cutie got a chic city makeover, trading in her signature Converse sneakers for towering Louboutins, with the help of fashion director Hal Rubenstein. “My style is usually more casual and laid back,” the 25-year-old reality star told us, as she posed against the Manhattan skyline atop the Andaz Hotel Wall Street in an Adam embellished mini and Banana Republic anorak. “But experiencing the fashionable and glamorous side of New York is amazing. It totally feels like I’m living Sex and The City!” Be sure to tune in tonight at 8pm EST on ABC to catch our cameo and see who she picks for her big city dates. You can also check out all the photos from her stylish makeover (and get the skinny on who she’s really crushing on!) in InStyle‘s July issue, on newsstands this Friday.
