Uh Oh Pageant: Miss USA contestants who made my "Uh Oh!" List--Miss USA 2016 Preliminary Competition Las Vegas Nevada
In my last post HERE, I discussed my Top Ten Best List from Wednesday night's Miss USA 2016 Preliminary Competition. So, naturally, now it is time to discuss my "Uh Oh!"/Could Have Been Better List. During the Preliminary Evening Gown Competition, there were lots of nice gowns and to be honest not so many major "Oh No She Didn't" moments. These gals come well prepared to the Miss USA finals with their very own pageant glam squad that makes sure that there are not too many style "oopsies". But...sometimes, style mistakes can still occur. Let's investigate which ladies--and their gowns left me Pageant Perplexed...
Let's begin with Feather Cray-Cray:
Miss Sucre Maydeliana Liyimar Diaz at Miss Venezuela 2015: Feather Loca!!
BREAST-a-LICIOUS: Next on the "Uh Oh's" of Miss USA 2016 Preliminary Evening Gowns are the Bad Bust Gals. One of the "trends" that stood out (literally!) for me after watching this year's Miss USA Preliminaries were the high amount of breast jobs (or at least, some questionably large ones!). It was all rather late 90's/early 2000's Retro for me. I guess you could say that Big Boobies are BACK y'all! (did they ever go away I wonder?) Well, in terms of the gowns, this didn't make for good gown moments...
The gown itself was very similar to what last year's Miss USA Olivia Jordan wore, featuring these gathered ruffle strips. I didn't like it when Olivia wore it and I'm not a fan of it now. It reminds me of a Quinceañera-meets-a-Piñata.
Miss Oklahoma USA Taylor Gorton: Taylor is another beautiful contestant who ended up in my "Bad Bust" style list. She wore this wine-colored velvet gown that featured a crystal waist trim and a very plunging neckline. Because the lovely Taylor is so well endowed, the dress top section just pulled open too much. REPEAT AFTER ME KIDS: These plunging neckline dresses are NOT made for big breasted ladies. They only work for the less endowed gals. At least the sash kind of took your eye away from focusing up there but even then, it was of no help.
Stripper Heel Alert: And now, let me end my "Uh Oh!" List with the ladies who made SHOE ERRORS at the Miss USA 2016 Preliminary Competition. I'll just signal out two contestants:
Miss Connecticut USA Tiffany Teixeira: Tiffany is GORGEOUS and I really didn't have a problem with her red off-the-shoulder overskirt gown. She looked quite impacting and pretty. But then...my eyes panned down and all of a sudden I had the "Shower Scene from Psycho" music playing in my head: THOSE TACKY LUCITE STRIPPER HEELS!!!!!! She ruined the whole look with those darn shoes! Why do these girls do this to themselves? Two scenarios: 1) She just wants to look taller. (On Wikipedia, it says she's 5' 7" which means she's probably 5' 5") 2) These gown samples are normally made for 5'8" or taller and therefore instead of shortening the hem, they give her some SUPER high platform heels to fix that! Either way, there's really no excuse to wear these, unless you work at Spearmint Rhino Strip Club in LA.
Much Better Shoe!
