A contestant’s pageant gown, the right jewelry and shoes add the winning touches that complete her look.
As the accessory closest to a contestant’s face, her pageant jewelry must be impeccable. “Accessories are the frame to the picture,” says pageant clothier, Thomas Tolbert. “Jewelry enhances and finishes the look. If it overpowers you and you look at the jewelry before you look at her face, then it’s wrong. You’ve got to consider the neck-line, the girl’s weight, her hair, and her eyes. There are a lot of things to be considered.”
The dress design, facial shape and size and hairstyle are the most important factors in selecting earrings to complement a total look.
