Whether it was the beautiful gowns, the jaw dropping talents or the intelligent on-stage interviews, there was not a single dull moment on the Miss America 2018 stage this year! All 52 contestants from across the country were putting their best heel forward, while competing for the prestigious title.
We loved seeing so much versatility on stage this year ranging from opening number outfits, to talent costumes, to idyllic evening gowns. If there was one element that all of the girls possessed during their wardrobe while on stage, it was bling, and plenty of it!
We loved seeing all the versatility of the gowns during the evening gown competition, because that is part of this phase of competition. It is not all about the gown, it is about the girl in the gown and how that specific gown is a true representation of her personality. The gown each girl chooses should reflect herself and it is the gown that makes her feel like a true queen, ready to conquer and inspire the world.
There was texture and smoothness, colorful and solids, alongside classic and nuevo designs. The Miss America stage was certainly eventful during the evening gown competition. We saw simple fabrics, like solid velvet and satin back crepe that had unique necklines or key detailing. There were fully beaded gowns that shown so bright when the beading hit the stage lights, it was breathtaking.
