Miss Iowa USA 2017 Evening Gown

Jenny Valliere captured the title of Miss Iowa USA 2017 in this stunning Fernando Wong gown!

The Color 

There were a ton of white evening gowns at Miss America this year, and it seems like this trend is making its way to the Miss USA system! White looks lovely against Jenny’s bronzed skin and dark hair. The nude portions of the gown match her skin tone perfectly and add to the cohesiveness of her overall look.

The Silhouette 

Jenny’s dress is fitted snuggly to her body and features a plunging neckline and a ruffled, mermaid skirt. Everything about the silhouette of this evening gown flatters her tiny, toned figure. The plunging neckline adds the right amount of sex appeal (considering this is the Miss USA system) while the ruffled skirt must have added some fun movement on stage. These two aspects balance one another out perfectly.

The Styling 

Jenny parted her hair down the middle and styled it in lose blown-out waves. This, in addition to her light makeup and simple earrings, prevented her overall look from being too overdone. Any other earrings, especially larger ones, would clash with her overall styling.
