It has just been announced that the Miss America pageant will undergo a dramatic overhaul and that contestants will no longer wear pageant dresses or take part in a swimsuit section of the contest. These big changes turn the historical contest into something very different – can it now even be considered a pageant?
The news remained a secret for several months but was voted on back in March this year by the mostly female board who run the contest.
“No Longer a Pageant”
Gretchen Carlson, who is the organization’s current chairwoman, spoke on the breaking news. According to Today she stated: “We are no longer a pageant. Miss America will represent a new generation of female leaders focused on scholarship, social impact, talent, and empowerment.”
She explained that instead of the swimsuit section of the contest, there will be a bigger focus on personality and exploring the candidate’s personal achievements: “In its place, each candidate will participate in a live interactive session with the judges, where she will highlight her achievements and goals in life and how she will use her talents, passion, and ambition to perform the job of Miss America.”.....

There is so much to consider when entering any pageant. As well as an amazing personality, at least one show-stopping dress is required. The right dress can single you out from the competition and make a lasting impression on the judges.
For any pageant, usually a formal long gown is needed. The traditional pageant gown typically has a sweetheart neckline and ball gown skirt. However, there is now a movement towards designs inspired by the runway or red carpet.
Choosing a pageant dress should also be about reflecting your own style and taste. As well as looking on-trend, you should also think about selecting the right dress for your body type. Don’t forget to choose a color that suits your skin tone too.
With all these factors to consider, it can simply come down to finding that dress that makes you stand out. The one that makes you feel confident and beautiful. That means it automatically ticks every other box!
