Find out our three favorite pageant dresses of 2014 so far!

All pageant princesses know the deal when it comes to stepping on stage. The goal is to look as gorgeous as possible with diet and exercise, glamorous make-up, graceful movements, and a stunning pageant dress. Of the above, selecting a dress with wow factor that perfectly complements your physique is usually the most difficult. But don’t fret, ladies! These three dresses have done wonders for many contestants in 2014.

Vintage Single Ruffled Skirt Star Detail Couture Dress – Mac Duggal: If you’re looking for simple elegance with an edge, this chic Mac Duggal gown is an excellent pick. This single-strap floor-length dress hugs every curve to show off the beautiful body that you worked so hard for. What makes this particular pageant gown so breathtaking is the large, intricate ruffle that extends from the shoulder strap down to your side, leading to a shimmering star design made of hundreds of rhinestones.

Strapless Olive Branch Jewel Waist Ball Gown – Jovani: If cute and girly is your style, don’t pass up this princess-style ball gown from Jovani. A heart-shaped neckline instantly grabs the eyes on this strapless dress, but they’ll quickly move down to the dazzling rhinestone olive branch design on the waist. A puffy satin skirt finishes off this fairy tale look. Now all you need is a pumpkin carriage to take you to your next pageant.

Chiffon Fit and Flare Pageant Gown – Ritzee Originals: This Ritzee Originals pageant dress is full of glitz and glam for ladies who love all things shiny. The entire form-fitting torso is encrusted in hand-beaded crystals, and the floor-length skirt features a high slit to showcase those silky legs. This is definitely a show-stopper.

Make a Memorable First Impression at Pageant with These Opening Number Dresses!

Alyce 2277 Cocktail DressTerani P677 Pageant DressWhether you’re meeting your boyfriend’s parents, starting a new class, or going on a job interview, chances are good that you’re concerned with making a fabulous first impression. Because, let’s face it, we don’t always do just that! It seems so simple when it’s written down, but there are countless things in life that come into play when we least expect them, often resulting in us leaving a less-than-awesome first impression despite our preparation. While we can’t prepare for 100% of the things that can happen, we can prepare in some ways. And when it comes to choosing opening number pageant dresses, here are two important things to consider…

Express Yourself – Nope, we aren’t talking about the Madonna song – we’re talking about you! Finding a beautiful pageant dress isn’t tricky; there are countless captivating dresses to choose from. But what does take some work is finding one that not only catches your eye, but really speaks to who you are and your unique sense of style. You’ll always feel your best, look your best, and perform your best when you are in love with the dress you’re wearing. It takes more than a great gown to win the crown, of course, but it certainly doesn’t hurt!

Give Yourself Some Room to Move – Keep the opening number routine in mind when choosing your opening number pageant dress. You want to be sure your dress isn’t too tight or short for what you’ll be doing during opening number. Even if you won’t be dancing at all, practice your poses in your opening dress before hitting the stage. If you’re too restricted, or it rides up to much when you pose, consider going up a size or choosing another dress.

Have a design in mind, or are you more of an ‘I’ll know it when I see it’ kind of gal? Browse our full collection of opening number pageant dresses and see what stands out! And remember – if a dress causes you to pause and take notice, it just might do the same for the judges!

This enhances your natural curves, or helps to create the illusion of curves if your body is more straight. The result is a classic silhouette that Marilyn Monroe would applaud!

Crown Collection 6120 by Bonny – Size 12 – You didn’t spend hours at the gym, in the yoga studio, or hitting the trail running to hide your lovely legs.

After all, I love color, not clashing! But even as someone who is drawn to the most brilliant blues and pizzazz-iest purples, I can also be stopped in my tracks by a gorgeous white gown.

Of course, wedding dresses can do this. If you’ve ever shopped for your own wedding dress or with a close friend or family member, you’ve surely gasped at least once. But the white dresses I’m talking about are a little bit different; I’m talking about white pageant dresses.
