Miss America week is off and running! Today half of the contestants sat down with the judges for their personal interviews to explain why they should take home the crown. The interviews generally are not made public until after the competition, so it’s impossible to for us know how they went. What we know is that tomorrow is the start of the preliminary competitions, which hopefully will find their way onto the internet by the end of the night. That will give us the first glimpse of how the contestants are stacking up.
In the meantime, here are some of the ladies who scored points (in my book) during the Fashion Show on Saturday:
Miss North Dakota’s got it all: the dress, the heels, the walk.
No surprises here. Miss New York knows how to work the runway.
Miss North Carolina oozes class on the catwalk.
Miss Michigan can make the sun shine on a rainy day.
While she did not make my list of 20, my vote for Fashion Queen goes to Miss Illinois with the exquisite jaguar dress.
And then there was Miss Georgia . . . she made sure the South was well-represented.
I certainly am no expert on fashion, so ladies help me out here . . . who do you think looked the best?
