    Operation That’s My Dress

    unnamed-1

    Just outside Las Vegas, the girls got together to honor military women for their service and sacrifice for USO’s Operation That’s My Dress inside a beautiful mansion equipped with a red carpet and, get this, a mermaid.

    unnamed

    Yes, a mermaid.  If the competition moves underwater, we would love her to host.

    Red Rock, Rocks!

    Las Vegas is great for dressing up and going out, but sometimes you just gotta get away from it all! 

    We took six contestants to Red Rock Canyon for a #FitnessFriday photoshoot and hike. 

    Take it from us, a little time away from the hustle and bustle can do wonders.

    Fore! One Shot Closer to the Crown

    Staying at the MGM Grand means premium access to everything the resort has to offer, including personal golf lessons from Top Golf. This afternoon, girls lined up to take a swing and hit the targets on the range. After working up a sweat, the girls had access to the private pool on the roof. What a perfect way to end a day at the driving range.

    Day 2 – Reg and Fitting

    It’s time for your Registration and Fitting! It might be overwhelming at first, but you’ll be ready to go in no time. If you listen closely you can hear things like: “Where is the photoshoot?” “Is this your first time in Vegas?” and of course “Which state are you representing?!”

    Step 1: Makeup
    What’s better than having a team of professionals do your makeup? Caley­Rae Pavillard, Miss Colorado USA 2016 says sitting on the make­up chair has been the most fun and relaxing part of the journey so far. “I’m usually not keen on doing my own makeup, so having the team do it for me has been amazing. I get to sit back and relax.” Who says you can’t zen out and look beautiful at the same time?

    Step 4: Dress and Swimsuit
    We all know that first­ impressions last a lifetime, but when it comes to a contestant’s first­ impression, the dress says it all. Opening number, Sherri Hill outfits reflect each contestant’s personality, some are vibrant while others are modest and minimal, like the shoes, let the dress pick you.

    To kill the swimsuit competition, you need two things: confidence and a good hair flip. Luckily, we’ve got you covered. Our experts at Luli Fama will provide with the beautiful form­-fitting bikini to keep you classy and confident when you rock it on stage.
