Amid the must-haves for a beauty pageant, a fabulous dress is the obvious priority. Choosing the right color, ensuring the right fit and finding the right accessories all contribute to making that stroll across the stage spectacular and memorable. This got us thinking up pageant-perfect ensembles and suddenly… embellished gowns came to mind! Take a look at three sparkly looks that will get you to the crown in no time!
Look #1 – Classic edge
Take classic black and add pizzazz by choosing a dress with lots of detail. To complement this gown’s bodice, we paired it with teardrop earrings and gave the option of a black or pink pump — how could we choose? Finish up with soft pink eyeshadow and you’re set!
Look #2 – Glitz and Glamour
Create a regal image by pairing a statement necklace with an equally high-impact gown. A colored heel can bring up the entire look, along with a matching eye. *This is a Staff Fave*
Look #3 – Smokey Color
More often than not a colored gown speaks volumes. Complement it by picking one other color accent and sticking to it. We decided on black as the ideal companion to use in accessories and make-up.
