I have judged many pageants in the past, from Teen to Mrs. And the judges get the same instructions. Do not judge the gown, judge the girl wearing the gown.

We all have seen it in the past, a girl with the ugliest or most simple gown wins. Judges never know who designed your gown or how much it cost. I coached a teen who won with a sinple re-sale black dress which cost $150.

99% of the time , if you win your state, you'll never wear the same gown at nationals.

My advice is. Get a gown you like and you feel pretty in and practice your walk. When it comes down to it, you could be wearing a gown with 1,00 crystals and it may glitter on stage as if it was on fire, but if you don't have the confidence or you allow the gown to wear you instead of the other way around, you'll never win. Don't allow the gown to ooutshine you. Judges want to see you sparkle, not the dress.
