The third night of the eveningwear “red carpet” moments of Miss America were held on Friday, Sept. 7 at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City.
It was the last group of contestants who made their way past the judges as they showed off their fashion statements and then asked about what statement they wanted to make to the world.
Tonight, the contestants will be whittled down to finalists and eventually to the new Miss America to take over for Cara Mund. The scholarship competition is going to be telecast tonight, Sunday, at 9 p.m. on ABC.
This is what the contestants wore in eveningwear on night 3 of preliminary competition.
