You can finally see what a typical weekend at work consists of for me! Here are some photos from the Miss Connecticut and Miss Connecticut Teen USA Pageant I worked at a few weekends ago. I just love seeing the beautiful gowns, hairstyles, makeup and competition the girls bring to the pageant. Here is a quick summary to give you an idea of what goes on at a Miss USA preliminary pageant!
The contestants go through intense rehearsing which consists of: dancing, walking, speaking and posing practice for the swimsuit, evening gown and final competitions. Then they have photo shoots with their gowns, interview outfits and swimsuits. The judges are able to meet them up close and personal through the judges preview with their swimsuit and evening gown as well as personal interview and on stage questions! All of the contestants did a fantastic job. It was a tight competition for sure, but I must congratulate Samantha Sojka, Miss Connecticut Teen USA and Regina Turner, Miss Connecticut USA, our 2011 titleholders :)
Hope you enjoy these photos!
