National All-American Miss Jr. Teen 2016 1st Runner-Up Evening Gown

Hannah DeLashmutt definitely caught the eyes of the judges when she competed for the title of National All-American Miss Jr. Teen 2016! Hannah finished as 1st Runner-up in this pretty pink ball gown.

The Color

With lovely blonde hair and a lightly bronzed complexion, you can’t go wrong with a stunning pink satin evening gown. Hannah’s color choice accents both her complexion and naturally beautiful facial features impeccably well.

This shade of pink is an excellent choice for younger contestants, especially Jr. Teens.

The Silhouette

Hannah’s evening gown presents a youthful ball gown silhouette, tank sleeves, a vee neckline, and a crystal accent waistband wrapping around her natural waist.

This gown fits Hannah like a glove! Proof that the right alterations can make or break a gown. The ball gown skirt and weight of the material creates a sweet and classic look. I love the lower vee neckline paired with the more modest silhouette.

A simple, embellished waistband perfectly cinches Hannah at the smallest part of her waist. It also gives the illusion that she’s taller than she really is.

The Styling

In keeping with the “less is more” theme throughout the gown, I am glad to see that Hannah decided to wear her hair down. The one shoulder option allows for the flattering neckline and bodice fit to be shown off while still showing off her gorgeous, long, blonde curls.

She coordinated her gown with matching pink crystal earrings.
