Everyone's been talking about our new Miss America 2016, Betty Cantrell. She stunned all of the judges during the 95th Annual Miss America pageant, and all eyes are on her to see what she has planned for changing the world during her reign. Her operatic singing was obviously incredible, but there's one thing from the pageant that we're still totally obsessing over: the dress that she won her crown in!
Did you recognize the gown she wore on her big night? The Miss America 2016 winning dress is by one of our very own designers: Panoply, which is part of House of Wu! Former Miss Georgia wore Panoply style 44284, a stunning two-piece evening gown that features an off-the-shoulder 3/4-length sleeve trimmed in bugle beads and AB stones. The skirt on this gown is a very fitted mermaid in Mikado that starts with a beaded waistband and flows into a generous explosion of a two-tiered mermaid skirt, and finishes with a sweeping train.
This two piece mermaid gown is such a glamorous look for not only a pageant, but for homecoming or prom, as well. And, with winter right around the corner, this is also a great choice for winter formal events... because it never gets more classy than winter white! All that you'll need to add is your very own crown to top the look off. This is definitely a one of a kind gown, and one that you can rock yourself, which is our favorite part about this look.
