The Color

The rich jewel tone throughout the gown does absolute wonders for Jaanu’s gorgeous complexion and facial features.

The gown has a perfect combination of deep purple accents set against a brighter backdrop. The colors throughout the gown give the overall look texture and dimensionality. Jaanu truly radiated and stood out from the competition.

The Silhouette

Jaanu’s evening gown features a column silhouette, subtle train, tank sleeves, plunging vee neckline, and plunging side vee.

With such a bold color, I am happy to see Jaanu wearing a simple silhouette. Any over-the-top detailing would take away from the eye-catching color and Januu’s stunning stage presence.

The addition of the subtle train adds the perfect amount of detailing to take this gown from your typical pageant silhouette to something special and unique. It also adds excellent movement to Jaanu’s gown as she walks.

This gown is absolutely breathtaking. However, I almost mistook Jaanu for a Miss contestant. The plunging vee neckline and side vees paired with a fitted silhouette this gown have an immense amount of sex appeal, which makes Jaanu look older than a Teen contestant.

The Styling

I love the sleek ponytail Jaanu is sporting on stage. Her flirty ponytail adds youthfulness to her overall look. Her styling is bold and unique and helps her stand out on stage. There is no wonder why she stood out amongst the competition.

She completed her look with statement crystal earrings, matching her gown perfectly.

The Verdict

As soon as I saw this gown, I immediately said HIT. Aside from the maturity of this gown, it is a breath of fresh air and captured Jaanu perfectly. Excellent choice, Jaanu. We wish you luck at Miss Teen USA 2017.
