The Color

I am in love with this color on Onyx. The bold red accents her perfectly bronzed skin tone so well while allowing her to completely stand out from the dark stage backdrop.

Contestants with dark hair can’t go wrong with a red evening gown.

The Silhouette

Onyx’s evening gown features a mermaid silhouette, sweetheart neckline and crystal detailings throughout the gown.

The tighter mermaid silhouette enhances the Teen-appropriate look. The fun, crystal detailing throughout the gown as well as the flirty, flared skirt make this silhouette a huge hit on Onyx’s tall and slender frame. It’s a perfect gown for a Teen contestant!

The basic sweetheart neckline allows for the judges’ eyes to focus on both the gown’s fun and intricate details as well as Onyx’s slender shoulders.

The overall fit of the gown, including the length, is spot on!

The Styling

When it comes to a strapless gown with such a simplistic neckline, I would have loved to see Onyx’s hair styled in large loose curls placed in front of her shoulders. This would have tied the whole look together perfectly.

The Verdict

Aside from the styling, the overall look and fit of this gown is spot on. This gown could not be more age appropriate. It’s a HIT! Great choice, Onyx.

    1. Hi Zinhle,

      Yes long sleeves for a preteen can certainly work. If you want to know with 100% confidence that the dress you’re thinking about buying is a good choice then click here to send it to us to review.
