Miss South Carolina United States 2016 Evening Gown
Lindley Mayer will represent the state of South Carolina in the Miss United States 2016 pageant! She won over the judges in a simple, yet edgy design choice.
This deep red is a great way to communicate the strength of the hue without being overt.
It is a common thought that contestants with commanding personalities should avoid red to prevent coming off too strong to the judges.
This deeper version softens the overall look, while still reaping the benefits. (Read: What Does Your Evening Gown Color Say About You?)
A column silhouette is fitted from head to toe to accent a slender, toned figure.
This plunging v-neck halter bodice elongates her torso, and the cutouts on the sides draw the eye inward even further at the waist for added definition.
A slight flare at the knee helps to create balanced volume.
I love these details that air more on the “red carpet” side than traditional pageant style.
A plain, gold hardware belt adds visual intrigue and chic drama.
A coordinating cuff bracelet and earrings finish off this cohesive look.
This fashion forward, unique look is a total HIT for Lindley! Looking forward to following this girl’s style throughout her year.
