All eyes were on the stage in Orlando, Fla. as contestants from across the country competed for the honor of being the next Miss America’s Outstanding Teen.
However, the women who would be Miss America also were in attendance showing off their style at the Linda Chapin Theater.
And among those who made the journey south was Miss Connecticut Bridget Oei.
This was Oei’s style as she walked the stage on night 2 of the preliminary MAO Teen competition with her fellow Miss contestants and at the visitations for her own teen, Miss Connecticut’s Outstanding Teen Morgan Mancini.
