Former Bachelor star Louise Pillidge puts on a glamorous display just days after ex Blake Garvey was trolled on The Bachelorette
She has been keeping a low profile since her public breakup with Blake Garvey more than four years ago.
And on Saturday, The Bachelor star Louise Pillidge was almost unrecognisable in a new photo shared to her Instagram story.
The real estate agent shared a photo of herself looking very different to how she had appeared on the Channel 10 dating show in 2014.

Louise was all smiles in a grey singlet top and donned long brunette locks.
The former reality star rarely posts on Instagram these days, and in May, she shared a photo of herself for the first time in seven months.
The image comes just days after her reality star ex-boyfriend Blake Garvey, and former Bachelor, was trolled on The Bachelorette.

During Wednesday’s episode, lurking among the decorations was a skeleton dressed in a suit and bow tie, with a red rose attached to its label.
In a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it close-up shot, viewers noticed the skeleton was wearing a name tag that read ‘Blake G’.
Host Osher Günsberg alerted fans to the cheeky reference as the episode aired, tweeting: ‘Oh my goodness. Did you see that skeleton? Did you SEE the name on it?’
Blast from the past: Perhaps the most chilling detail of the Wednesday’s horror-themed group date was a reference to former Bachelor Blake Garvey (pictured)

The producers’ decision to represent Blake as a skeleton could well have been a sly dig at Blake’s ill-fated showbiz career – or perhaps an homage to the horrors of his days as ‘Australia’s most hated man’.
Blake was branded a ‘love rat’ after his appearance on the Channel 10 show in 2014.
During the grand finale, he proposed to winner Sam Frost, only to dump her weeks later for second runner-up Louise Pillidge.
The couple went on to date for 18 months before splitting in 2016.
