Since most fashion bloggers are focusing on the “best and worst” dressed of the Golden Globes, I thought it was only appropriate that I focused my fashion attention on the 2013 Miss America Pageant! And I must say it was indeed spectacular! Out of respect of each contestant’s gown choice, I have decided to only share the “best gowns” rather than highlight the ones that I did not like. As we all know fashion is subjective! What one gal loves could be what another gal hates and vice versa. Enough of the small talk…here we GO!
Miss Tennessee, Chandler Lawson
Seeing lots of white gowns at Miss America is very typical, but Chandler made a great choice but adding blue stone work to the neckline. Also love the split..not too high and not too low. And lastly love the fact that she parted her hair opposite side of the split!
Miss Wyoming, Lexie Madden
Let’s just say…you can never go wrong with black! This gown is simple and sleek, but FABULOUS. Love the neckline, bead work and of course the split. This dress is a custom design by Gasper Cruz of Crown Couture. Considering that this dress has received better reviews than Eva Longoria’s black gown at the Golden Globes, I’m sure he will be receiving a couple of phone calls and rightful so!
Miss New York, Mallory Hagan
And guess what? Another white gown! First and foremost I absolutely LOVE jersey material so that sold me first. Secondly I’m a huge fan of one shouldered anything. So naturally I found this gown stunning. The sleek, classic ponytail and the black jewelry sealed the deal for me. In my opinion this dress screams trendy/red carpet Miss America. And I guess the judges felt the same way…because Mallory Hagan was crowned Miss America 2013 in that very dress!
What are your thoughts about the dresses shown above? As always, I’m curious to know your opinion.
