Miss Washington Teen USA 2017 Evening Gown

Alyssa Williams brought home the coveted title of Miss Washington Teen USA 2017 wearing this regal deep royal blue evening gown! Alyssa will compete for the title of Miss Teen USA 2017 later this year.

The Color

Deep, royal blue is a lovely choice with Alyssa’s fair complexion and platinum blonde hair color. The tulle fabric features a light sheen, which creates dimension and richness.

The Silhouette

Alyssa’s evening gown features a column silhouette, tulle skirt near the hemline, tank sleeves, plunging neckline, and crystal navy blue detailings scattered throughout the gown.

This design makes for a long and lean figure thanks to a fitted bodice throughout. The simple tank sleeves sit right atop her shoulders and add even more inches of height to her figure.

A subtle fishtail hemline comprised of tulle fabric is a nice contrast to the rest of the gown.

The major thing I don’t like about this gown is that it isn’t age appropriate for a Teen contestant in my opinion. When I first looked at this gown, I assumed it was a Miss contestant before I realized Alyssa was competing in the Teen division. I would have loved to see her in a more youthful silhouette.

The Styling

I love how Alyssa kept her hair down and swept to one side. This allows for the look to remain regal while still showing off the extremely flattering neckline of the gown.

The Verdict

The gown itself is absolutely stunning; however, because this gown makes Alyssa look so much older than she really is, this gown is a MISS for me. Good luck at Miss Teen USA 2017, Alyssa.
