Miss New Mexico USA 2017 Evening Gown

Ashley Mora was named Miss New Mexico USA 2017 in this elegant bright pink evening gown!

The Color

The fun flair of this bright hue is a great combination with Ashley’s tanned complexion and multi-tonal blonde hair.

This bright shade of pink is a little youthful for a Miss contestant; however, the silhouette makes it more mature.

Bright pink is an excellent color for teen contestants. Interested in seeing a teen evening gown in bright pink? (Read: Miss North Carolina Teen USA 2016 Gown: HIT or MISS?)

The Silhouette

Ashley’s evening gown presents a column silhouette, a halter neckline, a bodice cutout along the chest, and a waistline wrapping around her natural waist.

Ashley appears to be very petite in both height and weight, and she definitely picked the right silhouette for her slender frame.

A haltered neckline elongates her torso, and the waistline seated along her natural waist gives the illusion that she’s taller and accentuates her tiny waist.

The fitted silhouette paired with the sleeveless design and bold chest cutout add tasteful elements of sex appeal to Ashley’s simplistic gown.

The Styling

Large soft curls over one shoulder are a welcome contrast to the clean lines and structure of the gown itself.

The look is completed with circular crystal earrings and crystal bracelet that keep the design looking elegant instead of over-the-top.

The Verdict

This evening gown is a HIT in every possible way. Excellent choice, Ashley. Good luck on your year of reign.
