Taylor Williams, Maryland delegate, turned heads on the runway with this custom-made jumpsuit by Michele Blanchard. If there was a couture category and we were the judges, Williams would have our vote. The cascading, ruffled, floor-length bell sleeves were ultra refreshing in a sea of standard choices: capes, over skirts, and peek-a-boo mid drifs. Williams deserves applause for her creativity, risk, and fashion-forward attitude.
She later changed into a blue, beaded sleeveless, deep v sheath, with a horse hair trumpet for the evening wear finals. It was a safe, standard, predictable look. All is forgiven as Williams custom jumpsuit by Michele Blanchard more than made up for it. Taylor Williams in Michele Blanchard couture is the fashion-forward face that helps USA National Miss pageant live up to its styling as a fashion-forward national pageant organization.
Jaelynn Holtz, USA National Miss Ohio 2018 delegate, competed for the national title in a gown by Panoply. And latter on that evening, she donned a sleeveless gown with a deep v-neck, beaded bodice and satin skirt in champagne.
