2016 Miss American Coed Chesapeake State Jr Teen Evening Gown
A’Milliana McNeil, 2016 Miss American Coed Chesapeake State Jr. Teen, graced the 2016 Miss American Coed stage in this elegant violet evening gown!
Normally, when selecting a color in the pastel family it is always better to opt for richer versions of the tone. As much as I would have liked to see this gown in a slightly darker hue for onstage purposes, this lighter shade of purple complements A’Milliana’s dark complexion and dark hair color well.
A contestant can easily be washed out by a color like this one; however, A’Milliana’s presentation is unphased.

A’Milliana’s gown features a youthful A-line silhouette, tank sleeves and crystal detailed bodice stopping at her natural waistline.
An A-line silhouette is a tried and true silhouette for age divisions below “Teen.” Making this a perfect evening gown for A’Milliana. When paired with this light shade of purple, this silhouette showcases her youthfulness and fun personality.
Tank sleeves and a bodice stopping at her natural waist, elongating her legs and helping her appear taller on stage, adding elements of maturity to her overall look.
A crystal detailed bodice adds a little sparkle to an otherwise simplistic evening gown.

A’Milliana’s hairstyle is effortless and still allows the detail on her gown to be showcased. Her hair is just slightly curled for texture.
She tied her whole look together with understated crystal earrings and a matching crystal bracelet.
A’Milliana seems sweet, put together and fresh all at once. This beauty is a HIT! Great choice, A’Milliana.
