Dress the Bachelorette or a Bachelor

Find 5 items of clothing similar to what was worn on the show from 5 different covers. 

For example- a bathing suit, high heels, a tank top, long dress, hat, etc. Any article of clothing works. They just need to be 5 different pieces of clothing. For example, you can't use a pair of jeans twice.
