Gown Gals: Miss World 2016 contestants at the "Designer Dress Dinner", MGM National Harbor Resort Maryland
The 66th Annual Miss World Beauty Pageant Finals is almost here!116 contestants from all over the world are competing for the coveted crown, with the finals taking place at the just-opened MGM National Harbor Resort in Maryland, just south of Washington D.C. This is the second time in the history of the pageant that it has been held in the US (last time, it was in Atlanta Georgia back in 1991.
All the contestants have been in the DC area for the last couple of weeks taking part in some of the "Challenge Events", including Sports, Talent, Top Model, etc. Some of the contestants even got to take a trip to NYC to check out a Broadway show. Unfortunately, there has not been a "National Costume Presentation" since the contestants were told to leave those back at home so sadly, there was no fabulous Flora & Fauna or Conquistador Couture for me to cover but...a couple of nights ago the Designer Dress Dinner happened in which the beauties wore their finest in "Designer Dresses"/Evening Gowns. As you know here on my Sashes And Tiaras Blog, besides National Costumes, I also love to discuss Pageant Gowns so...
From looking at the photos, here are some of my favorite Evening Gowns from the "Miss World Designer Dress Dinner":
The Angel Sanchez-design gown that "Miss World Venezuela" Jacqueline Aguilera wore when she won the "Miss World 1995" title
Last but not least...
