Mrs. Austin America 2017 Evening Gown

Mrs. Austin America 2017, Stephanie Hopkins, was a vision in red when she brought home the crown!

The Color

Red is certainly a bold color to wear during any competition and can be hard to pull off, but not for Stephanie! This dress certainly stands out against the dark and beaded backdrop, putting Stephanie as the main focal point for the judges!

This color of red looks great against Stephanie’s fair complexion and blonde hair.

The Silhouette

Stephanie’s ultra-fitted dress possesses off the shoulder sleeves, a sweetheart neckline, and a mermaid ruffle skirt followed by an elegant train.

This specific dress style looks fantastic on Stephanie’s shape!

First and foremost, let’s give credit to Stephanie’s voluminous curls that frame her face perfectly while parted down the middle!

Stephanie chose large, red, crystal teardrop earrings, which to me, I find distracting. I would have liked to see Stephanie go with a longer, simpler crystal earring. She also wore a red crystal and rhinestone bracelet.

The Verdict

Stephanie looked absolutely stunning in her evening gown, making this look a HIT for me! Great job, Stephanie.
