ORLANDO– With an evening gown, it’s often as important to have the beauty of the garment evident as you’re walking away from someone’s eye as it is when you’re walking toward your intended audience.
At Thursday’s Miss America’s Outstanding Teen preliminaries at the Orange County Convention Center, the remaining contestants competing in the evening gown segment took this to heart.
The final third of contestants clearly took great care in selecting gowns that looked as gorgeous walking toward the judges as well as walking away.
The national scholarship pageant heads into the finals on Saturday night.
