We've kept you posted on the Miss America 2015 competition for a couple of months now because one of our favorite designers, Tony Bowls, is the exclusive evening gown sponsor of the event...and the wonderful pageant has officially come to an end as of last night! We're very excited to announce that Miss America 2015 is Kira Kazantsev of New York!
Does something about that statement sound familiar? It's because this is the third year in a row that Miss New York took the Miss America crown...that's right, this is a threepeat! Last year, Nina Davuluri took the Miss America 2014 crown, and she must have been very happy to pass it down to her fellow New Yorker, Kira, last night. That's not all, though...even Miss America 2013 was from New York, Mallory Hytes Hagan!
While Kira is our new Miss America, all of the girls looked stunning... especially in their Tony Bowls dresses! The first runner up is Courtney Garrett, Miss Virginia, the second runner up was Ashton Campbell, Miss Arkansas, the third runner up was Victoria Cowen, Miss Florida, and the fourth runner up was Lauren Kuhn, Miss Massachusetts.
Kira's got the smarts and talent all rolled up into one - she's a vocalist, and is a future law student, having been accepted to Fordham's law school. For her talent portion, Kira surprised everyone by singing Pharrell Williams' "Happy" while sitting cross-legged on stage and banging a red plastic cup on the floor! And, she named combatting sexual assault in the military as the issue which she would want female U.S. Senators to press their male counterparts. She clearly has a very unique mind, very deserving of the Miss America crown!
Kira was crowned in a stunning backless Tony Bowls couture white long sleeved gown. She looked so elegant and graceful in it! If you want her look for Prom, or Homecoming, go with Tony Bowls Evenings TBE11457, a long sleeve jersey slim-fitting gown with beaded triangle bodice inset, beaded center front, softly gathered front bodice, beaded cuffs, open back with cowl drape, and a skirt with a flared back and train.
