As of January 7, The Bachelor is finally back on television, and this time, Emily Maynard's season cast-off Sean is determined to find love for good. On the season 17 premiere, the Dallas businessman met 26 women, all vying for his attention at the opening cocktail party.

While we love the drama that comes with a typical The Bachelor episode, this time we were focused on one thing – the evening dresses! We can't say for sure who will win Sean's heart in the end, but click through the gallery above to see StyleList's winners for best-dressed from the premiere. Some common themes we spotted in the dresses we loved? Beaded details and the classic color combination of black and white.

These ladies will be the ones to watch this season (at least sartorially).
