Pageant Girls Take Note S/S Fashion Week 2013

This might be one of my favorite collections of photos I’ve curated for fashion week. :) As a former pageant girl myself, I have still floored that this industry traditionally cultivates some of the ugliest and gaudy ‘self expression’ amongst young women. I’ll stand by my statement that couture does not equal a hot glue gun and rhinestones. In my humble opinion, the world should take note from the current Miss USA, Olivia Culpo. The brand herself and the Miss Universe organization has created for her is sophisticated, strong and refined. Ladies, you can’t buy a “winning look”. What you can exude through your clothing is taste and a strong sense of self. You can start to do this by studying the true innovators and designers in fashion and not taking your pageant coaches advice as gospel. ~amberlee
