Wear the Pageant Gown That Makes You Feel Like the Winner
The right pageant gown not only makes the judges feel like they’re looking at a winner, it makes the contestant wearing the gown feel like she is already is the winner.
The objective isn’t to find the most eye-catching gown but the gown that makes the young woman look her most beautiful. An evening gown should enhance a young woman’s beauty by complementing her unique skin tones and hair coloring.
“When you find the gown that you absolutely fall in love with, that you know looks great on you,” says Kati Fish, co-owner of KT’s The Winning Edge in Arkansas, “you automatically walk prouder, with your head held higher and your shoulders back, and you walk more gracefully than you would walk in a dress that was just so-so. Having the right gown makes a big difference when you’re competing,” says Kati, ”because it builds your confidence. You want to make sure that you look your absolute best.”
Robin Elliott-Bear, of Robin Elliott Ltd., says: “I tell every girl who is here, ‘I want you to feel so good in this gown that if all fifty contestants walked onstage in the same dress, you would still feel like the winner.’”
There is No One Pageant Gown That Every Judge Will Like
Remember that there is no one pageant gown that every judge will like. “Everyone has their own opinions,” Robin warns, “so when you get into a competition and there are five or seven judges who all have their opinions, you could have a different winner every day of the week. That’s why it’s important to find a dress that suits the young woman’s personality and figure, and that makes her feel the best.
Because you cannot make every judge happy.” No one can predict what judges will like on a given evening – so wear what makes you feel like a winner.
