Miss Utah USA 2017 Evening Gown
With Baylee’s dark brown hair and bronzed complexion, stark white is a GREAT color option for her. This color makes her pop on stage, even with the lighter backdrop.
White was one of the most popular evening gown colors last year, and it doesn’t seem to be going away just yet.
Baylee’s predecessor also captured the title wearing a white evening gown. (Read: Miss Utah USA 2016 Evening Gown: HIT or MISS?)
Baylee’s evening gown presents a column silhouette, haltered neckline with crystal accent choker, and simplistic yet unique back cutouts.
Baylee is truly the focal point of this look. Every element highlights her beauty and stage presence perfectly, which is exactly what a contestant should want out of a gown.
This column silhouette does absolute wonders for Baylee’s figure! The uninterrupted lines elongate her torso and legs helping her appear more statuesque on stage.
I am in love with the bodice of this gown. The unique neckline with crystal definitely makes the gown a sure standout. The back cutouts are a differentiating detail as well.

Both Baylee’s hair and makeup are done very nicely to perfectly enhance as well as accent the evening gown’s overall look. Her volumized curls draped mostly over one shoulder allows for the judges to get a great look at Baylee’s stunning facial features as well as her well-toned arms and shoulders.
It is hard to see in this photo, but in others it is clear how well the earrings match the previously mentioned crystal detailing along the neckline.
I think it can go without saying that this gown is an obvious HIT! A gown should always complement the contestant’s best features. Great choice, Baylee.
