Miss Rhode Island USA 2017 Evening Gown

The Color

Gold tones certainly were a popular color at The Miss USA 2017 competition!

Kelsey wore this gold-toned gown that also has blue sequins throughout. The bottom transitions into a sheer lace skirt beginning at the knees.

Kelsey made an excellent choice wearing this gold against her skin tone and dark hair.

The Silhouette

Kelsey’s gown has tank sleeves, a deep v-neck top, a mesh upward peak illusion just under the bust. It is fitted until the knees, which then billows out with sheer lace.

My eyes are immediately drawn to the mesh illusion that separates the top of the dress from the rest. However, I do like the slightly tapered trumpet skirting. This allows Kelsey to appear tall and lean.

The Styling

Kelsey kept her look simple, with her brown hair swept to one side in big, round curls. Long, rhinestone earrings were the only jewelry pieces worn to complete this look. (Shop: Pageant Jewelry)

My only recommendation would be for Kelsey to wear her hair styled up or into a low bun. By doing this, I think more attention would have been drawn to her facial features.

The Verdict

Ultimately, this look is going to be a HIT for me. Way to go, Kelsey.
