Miss Universe Kenya 2016 Evening Gown

Mary Esther Were competed on the Miss Universe 2016 stage and won over the judges’ hearts in this extremely detailed red evening gown! Mary landed a spot in the Top 6 at Miss Universe.

The Color

I love this color against Mary’s dark complexion. Paired with her gorgeous brunette hair and strikingly bold facial features, it’s clearly a great color choice!

There were not many red evening gowns on the Miss Universe stage this year. Mary definitely took a risk with this bold color.

The Silhouette

Mary’s evening gown presents an ultra-fitted mermaid silhouette, power shoulders, quarter length sleeves, a high neckline, and unique cutouts throughout the bodice.

This gown does not disappoint by any means. The mermaid silhouette hugs every inch of Mary’s slim physique. The silhouette is fitted all the way down to the knee, flowing out into a full skirt. The skirt adds the perfect amount of drama and regality to the overall look.

A high neckline and quarter sleeves keep the look modest and mature, while the unique cutouts add a tasteful element of sex appeal. This unique feature definitely sets her apart from the other contestants.

I like that the gown features simplistic red crystal details. This bold gown speaks for itself, not needing much detailing.

The Styling

Mary’s hair is styled boldly in a striking updo. I like that she chose to style her hair up due to her sharp facial features and unique gown design. Her hairstyle and statement crystal earrings tied the whole look together.

The Verdict

Mary took so many risks with this look and every single one paid off. She could not look more beautiful or unique. Mary truly stood out and for that this gown is a HIT! Excellent choice, Mary. Congratulations on all of your accomplishments at Miss Universe 2016.
