Emerald green is often a color overlooked for an evening gown unless you have red hair. However, I think it looks great on a wide variety of contestants and can stand out in a sea of red gowns during the competition.
This shade of green was an excellent color choice for Rachael as it looks wonderful against her lighter skin tone and dark brown hair. (Read: What Your Evening Gown Color Says About You)
Rachael’s gown presents tank sleeves, a v neckline, small side triangular cutouts, a beaded bodice, and it is banded at her natural waistline to transition into a full-length skirt with a small train.
Not only is this the perfect color choice, but the fit is impeccable for Rachael’s shape!
Rachael chose to style her look pretty simple with crystal drop earrings and a rhinestone bracelet to match. Her dark brown hair is styled in big round curls, though I would have liked to see her pull her hair back to elongate her look even more.

I think I can go without saying that this look is a HIT! Congratulations, Rachael! Excellent choice!
