Miss Maryland Teen USA 2018 Evening Gown

Caleigh Shade won over the judges at the 2018 Miss Maryland Teen USA pageant where she captured the crown!

The Color 

Green is a color that is often overlooked when it comes to evening gowns. Even so, I’m so glad that Caleigh didn’t rule this color out because it looks lovely against her fair skin and blonde hair. It definitely must have made her stand out on stage!

There are often mixed feelings surrounding the color green in pageantry. What do you think? (Read: Do Green Pageant Dresses Hurt Your Chances of Winning?)

The Silhouette 

Caleigh’s evening gown features a sweetheart neckline with pointed corners, an ultra-fitted bodice and a mermaid silhouette. This silhouette is perfect for Caleigh’s slim figure since it highlights her tiny waist and shows off her toned arms.

The Styling 

I’m absolutely in love with the accessories Caleigh paired with her evening gown! This multi-colored choker necklace draws attention up to her facial beauty and shows that she is keeping up with trends in pageantry. Since this evening gown is on the simpler side, I like that she chose to pair it with earrings that are on the smaller side.

Caleigh’s blonde hair was kept away from the front of her gown, allowing her unique neckline and trendy accessories to show. This wasn’t her only smart styling choice, as Caleigh kept her look youthful by wearing light eye makeup and a nude lip.

The Verdict 

After seeing this unique evening gown, Caleigh should be on your list of contestants to look out for at the 2018 Miss Teen USA pageant. This gown is a HIT!  Best of luck, Caleigh!
