Our favorite dress designers are taking over the Miss America pageant left and right! Just last year, we had announced that Tony Bowls was the Official Evening Gown Sponsor for Miss America 2015. Well, we have a new surprise for the Miss America 2016 Pageant: organizers of the competition recently announced that Sherri Hill will be the event's official gown sponsor!
The designer's dresses will be featured during the live broadcast of the 95th Annual Miss America Competition in Rissy Roo's very own hometown of Atlantic City, New Jersey. The 2016 Miss America Competition will air on Sunday, September 13, on ABC-TV, so make sure not to miss out. Amongst getting to wear the crown and represent Miss America in various ways for an entire year, this year's winner will also wear Sherri Hill dresses to the various events and public appearances she attends throughout the year. Rocking Sherri Hill is definitely a perfect way to compliment any crown. Miss America 2015, Kira Kazantesev, certainly rocks Sherri Hill perfectly in the photo below, even without her crown on!
In a press release announcing the sponsorship arrangement, Miss America Organization's Executive Chairman & CEO Sam Haskell was quoted as saying that Sherri Hill dresses are "synonymous with class and style," and we certainly can't disagree! He also said that the organization was "so pleased to welcome Sherri Hill into the Miss America family." We definitely can't see a better fit for the pageant and dress designer to team up.
In less than a decade since she launched her own line, Sherri Hill gowns have become a huge part of beauty pageant competitions, with the dresses being featured in nearly every major beauty competition. Contestants have already been seen time and time again wearing Sherri Hill during the Miss America pageant, with winners of the competition even having won their crowns while wearing Sherri Hill gowns. So, it's certainly no surprise that Sherri Hill is now the official gown sponsor of the pageant.
The Miss America pageant is one of the most historic and prestigious beauty competitions in the world, so Sherri Hill is certainly a perfect partner, having a very prestigious past herself. Since her debut at New York Fashion Week in 2011, Sherri Hill's designs have become a fashion stable of some of the brightest young starlets in Hollywood. The combination of classic elegance and modern attitude have made Sherri Hill party dresses a favorite among young stars of movies, music, and TV. Singers and TV personalities Selena Gomez, Ariana Grande, and Bella Thorne have been seen in Sherri Hill on and off stage. Country singers Miranda Lambert and Carrie Underwood have rocked Sherri Hill evening gowns at award ceremonies. And, reality TV stars Kylie Jenner, Kendall Jenner, and Sadie Robertson have been the faces of Sherri Hill, modeling the designs at red carpet events, like New York Fashion Week.
We're hope you're as excited for this Sherri Hill Miss America partnership as we are! Make sure to keep it glued here for more news on Sherri Hill and the Miss America 2016 pageant. We'll be updating you on what all of the contestants are wearing, and how you can get the looks yourself. And, most importantly, don't forget to watch the pageant on September 13th.
