When you see them compete for a crown, evening gowns, cocktail dresses, business attire, and swimsuits or athleisure wear are the uniforms of necessity. But what do titleholders wear when the sash and crown are stashed away.
This week we meet Miss Farmingbury’s Outstanding Teen Gia Iwanec of the Miss America system.
“Life Is A Party, Dress Like It” is Gia’s fashion philosophy for getting dressed for a night on the town.
“As Style is one of the four points of the crown,” said Gia, “I truly always try to put the best image of myself out there.”
Gia said, “As a teen, it is the time to take fashion risks and showcase your personal brand and style.”
“When spending time out with friends or family,” explained Gia, “you will always find me dressing on the fun side but also show maturity.”
Gia continued, “I love a good off the shoulder shirt with a very fun and vibrant earring. I always love shopping for new clothes that define who I am. You can always find me with a smile on my face while being genuine, kind and unique. I hope you enjoy my personal style as much as I do.
As for her casual style, Gia said, “When kicking back and relaxing, which really doesn’t happen as much, you can find me in my lululemon leggings with a comfy sweatshirt.”
“I love to dress comfy when I’m just chilling because it makes me feel so warm and happy. I love lululemon’s wardrobe because you can dress their clothing down or up,” said Gia.
Titleholders in any pageant system interested in being featured in “Stashing the sash fashion” should email firstname.lastname@example.org.
