Miss American Coed Miss Minnesota Junior Teen 2016 Evening Gown

Annalee Friedman, Miss American Coed Miss Minnesota Junior Teen 2016, competed for the title of Miss American Junior Teen at the Miss American Coed Pageant wearing this classic red evening gown!

The Color

Red can be a difficult color to pull off in a younger age division, but Annalee chose a very appropriate style of dress to offset the bold attraction of the gown’s color.

Although there are a wide variety of shades of red, this shade looks great against Annalee’s dark brown hair and lighter skin tone. (Read: How To Pick The Right Red Evening Gown)

The Silhouette  

Annalee’s gown presents pearl and crystal beaded cap sleeves that outline the v neckline, a banded empire waistline, and a slight ballgown skirt with a tulle overlay.

First and foremost, the combination of pearl and crystal beading is one of my favorite duos. Not only is this look very chic, but the jewelry options are limitless! The transition of this beading to the v neckline is very age appropriate as it adds some pizzazz without stepping out of the Junior Teen category. Remember to pick an evening gown that is appropriate for your age division. (Read: What Are The Best Pageant Gowns For Each Age Division)

Could Annalee look any more innocent and charming? I’m loving the empire waistline to perfectly outline her shape and elongate her body.

The Styling

Annalee chose to leave her dark brown hair down and curled loosely. I’m glad to see that she had her hair away from her face and even styled her bangs up and out of her face. This allows our attention to focus on her facial beauty. I think she could have taken this look to the next level with a spunky low ponytail so we would have been able to see more of the cap sleeve, pearl and crystal detailing.

Round crystal earrings are worn and her makeup is applied very naturally.

The Verdict

Annalee looked amazing as she made sure her styling and gown choice was appropriate for her age division. All of this makes this look a HIT! Way to go, Annalee, and congratulations on placing 4th Runner-up for Miss American Junior Teen at the Miss American Coed Pageant!
