National All-American Miss Jr. Teen 2016 Top 10 Evening Gown
Lauren Howard wore this yellow gown at the National All-American Miss Jr. Teen 2016 pageant where she placed within the Top 10!
I absolutely love yellow gowns on just about every stage, and especially on Jr. Teen and Teen contestants. The color is so eye-catching and complementary to a wide range of contestants. The warmth of this color radiates.
Lauren definitely rocks the yellow. The color complements her dark complexion and dark hair color perfectly.

Could this gown be more age appropriate? Lauren’s evening gown presents an A-line silhouette, a high neckline, cap sleeves, and crystal and pearl intermixed detailings throughout the top of the bodice and down the back of the gown.
This A-line silhouette is more conservative with a sense of classic maturity. I really love the jeweled neckline as it draws the audience’s eyes towards the top of the gown and to Lauren’s gorgeous smile.
The freely moving skirt adds excellent movement to the gown as she walks.
Sometimes this particular gown comes off a little too mature; however, the bright shade of yellow makes it youthful and age appropriate for Lauren.
I love that Lauren embraced her natural hair for evening gown. The light styling showcases her youthfulness and fun personality: perfect for a Jr. Teen contestant.
She completed her look with crystal earrings, matching the detailing on her gown perfectly.
