The Color

The light and darker shades of pink paired together make this gown pop on stage. The dimensionality of the balayage effect throughout the gown paired with Ana’s fair skin tone makes this gown completely stand out!

A balayage color effect can be difficult to pull off. However, Ana’s risk definitely paid off. This gown is an instant eye catcher.

The Silhouette

Ana’s evening gown presents an A-line silhouette, chiffon skirt, sweetheart neckline, and a crystal detailed bodice.

I am in love with the movement that the chiffon skirt gives to the overall look. The playful flow of the skirt partnered with the elegant bodice gives this gown a large personality range. You can’t help but notice how much fun Ana seems to be having on stage.

The sweetheart neckline is subtle and sweet. The crystal detailed bodice adds contrast to the playfulness of the skirt. I love the beading throughout the bodice and how it continues slightly into the skirt. This detailing allows the gown to possess fluidity.

My only concern is that this gown makes Ana look a little young. This particular style and color choice are more commonly seen on Teen contestants. I would have loved to see these design and color elements in a ball gown.

The Styling

With such prominent facial features, I love that Ana chose to pull her hair away from her face in a sleek updo. This allows for the focus to remain on her face, rather than allowing for her features to get lost in the look. This hairstyle also gives the overall look an increased level of maturity.

She took a risk with a bright pink lip. However, I would have loved it more had this been a ball gown. It would have given Ana’s look an air of sophistication and tied her whole look together very nicely.

The Verdict

Although I feel that this silhouette is a little too youthful for Ana, I still believe that this gown is a HIT! There is no denying that Ana looks stunning. Great choice, Ana.
