I had a blast last weekend, attending the Miss America Pageant in Las Vegas!  Along with my friends at DSW, Designer Shoe Warehouse, we attended the Decades of Dreams Gala on Friday night, where we had the chance to mingle with all of the contestants and their families.  The highlight of the evening was seeing all the Miss America “formers”!  As this was the 90th Anniversary of the Miss America Pageant, they invited many of the former winners to be a part of this years event.  There were winners from as far back as the 1940’s and they still looked fantastic! After all these years, they were all so beautiful and regal!

Saturday night was the main event and as I was with the proud sponsors, I had the chance to sit in the front row! If you watched the show live on ABC, I was seated right behind judge, Joy Behar! The show was a lot of fun and it was great to see all the contestants compete live and in person.  As for fashion, there were A LOT of sequins and rhinestones! But would you expect anything less from the Miss America Pageant? In addition to the bling bling, all the contestants were wearing specially designed shoes from DSW!  Along with the Miss America Organization, DSW recently launched a line of day and evening shoes that are sold exclusively at DSW!  Definitely worth checking out!

As for the contestants, I was routing for Miss Arkansas, especially after her fantastic ventriloquist performance!  But, congratulations to the newest and youngest crowned Miss America, Teresa Scanlan of Nebraska!  After having a chance to listen to Teresa speak at the post show press conference, she was indeed amazing, and very deserving of her new crown.  The judges made a great choice!
