Best Evening Gowns in Pageantry: 2022 Edition

25, January 2022

The biggest lie in pageantry is that judges do not judge your evening gown.

The majority of directors in the industry encourage their judges not to "judge the dress" but rather judge the girl in the dress. Judges are supposed to score the contestant based on how she wears the evening gown yet time and again we see the coorelation that the girl who has the dress that is on trend, properly tailored and accentuates her in a way that maximizes her strongest attributes wins or scores VERY high in this phase of competition.

With the 2022 season still underway here are the best pageant dresses from 2013 and beyond. They are categorized below based on age divisions and year. Use the table of contents below to drop down to your desired section.

How to qualify for & win best evening gown? 

Anyone, anywhere in the world can qualify for "best evening gown" if you have: 

  1. Have a contestant profile on Pageant Planet
  2. Uploaded an image of your evening gown + applied the tag "evening gown"
  3. You receieve at least one nominaton.

Nominations begin November 1st each year and close towards the end of December.

A panel goes through every submission and narrows the list down to a Top 15 per age division. Then that panel passes the Top 15 onto our expert judges (scroll below the table of contents to see who judged this year). The panel then lists in order the gowns they like the most to the least. Then our software adds up all the scores and whoever has the lowest score wins, second lowest gets second and so on.

Top 10 Preteen Evening Gowns of 2019

10. Saira Arias

The selection for the tenth spot on our list is Saira Arias. She’s clearly already got a lot of personal style, because this gown is so pretty!

The fabric is a golden yellow floral print which is subtle and delicate. The gown has a natural waistline, cap sleeve, sweetheart neck and a very old world Queen Anne neckline that is just exquisite. This is a very unusual choice, not often seen in pageantry, and we found it so refreshing and original.

The gown is finished with a gorgeous rhinestone and gold beaded trim around the midsection, sleeves, shoulders and neckline.

9. Ava Gresser

Coming in ninth is Ava Gresser and she looks absolutely pristine and perfect in this white satin, one-shouldered, A-line gown. This gown is all about simple, refined elegance with just a hint of sparkle around the waist and on the bow. The center of the bow is filled with rhinestones, which makes it oh-so glamorous, and even the edges of the bow are all finished with stones! This level of detail is so special and unique.

The judges must have adored this gown (and the girl in it) as much as we do, because Ava came away with the 2019 - 2020 National American Miss Jr Preteen title!

Photo: National American Miss

8. Abigail Akins

Abigail Akins 2019 National American Miss Oregon Jr. Preteen ranked in the eighth position on the list.

Abigail wowed the judges when she wore this emerald green ball gown. The dress looks to be made from organza and features an off-the-shoulder sweetheart neckline with classic princess seaming on the bodice.

This dress also has a delightful Antebellum waistline, which is another style that isn’t seen very often on the pageant stage. Both the unusual waist and off the shoulder pieces are trimmed in a very regal emerald green rhinestone that matches the fabric of the gown to perfection.

Photo: Abigail Atkins 

7. Alyssa Hernandez

The seventh placement on our list is Alyssa Hernandez, the current 2019 USA National Miss Grand Canyon Preteen. For her evening gown competition, this fashion savvy teen chose a gown by Tiffany Designs from the House of Wu, which was purchased from Glam Squad Couture.

It can be very tricky to wear a gown with one color on the top and another on the bottom, especially if you are petite, but Alyssa pulled it off beautifully. The A-Line skirt is made from a white Mikado silk, and the bodice is sumptuous black velvet with a sweetheart neckline. The dress has some unusual touches, like the half sleeves, which extend only to the elbow, a very rare sleeve length for an evening gown. There is also a diamond shape opening in the back and the gown’s only adornment is a 3D Beaded Waistband.

6. Alexis Miranda

Alexis Miranda, 2019 Royal International Miss Grand Canyon State Preteen, was selected for our number six spot on the list this year, and her gown is a stunner!

It’s a classic ball gown silhouette but the top is sleeveless with a high neck. The gown also has a fabulous rhinestone collar at the neckline. We love this embellished collar so much because it brings all the attention up to her beautiful face.

This Mac Duggal creation is a fantasy gown made from an ice blue shimmery fabric that is absolutely mesmerizing! The silky fabric is shot through with tiny little crystals and seems to glow against her pale skin and dark ebony hair.

5. Addison Fischer

Addison ranks at number five with a head turning gown that she wore when she competed at Miss Royalty International 2019. She wore a gown with classic A-Line skirt. But, Addison’s gown took a classic look to a whole new level of fabulous!

The top of this gown is a halter style which is jaw dropping in its originality, because both the top part of the bodice and the waist is covered in solid rhinestones. We believe the fabric of the skirt is charmeuse, but the fabric of the top is made from a complex floral design that is heavily embroidered with stones and beads in a variety of pastel shades.

4. Landis McKee

Taking the fourth position on our list this year is Landis McKee, the current USA Ambassador Preteen 2019.

Landis is resplendent in this billowy fuchsia satin ball gown which must have had such a magical shimmer under the lights when she walked across the stage. She opted for a portrait style collar that has been pushed off the shoulder, but which has an appropriate neckline for a preteen. This lovely Marc DeFang spokesmodel looks divine in this one-of-a-kind creation, fit for royalty!

3. Aleah Stigall

The number three placement on our list is Aleah Stigall, 2019 International Junior Miss Bluegrass State Pre-Teen, for her gown that won Best Preteen Evening Gown at the International Junior Miss 2019 competition!

The gown has a full ballroom skirt, and a feminine portrait style collar, which is so flattering for girls in this age division. This bodice has a very unique twist, however. It’s almost more of a shawl collar in shape, but then it is gathered together at the front of Aleah’s left shoulder.

The fabric is a deeply saturated sapphire blue satin that is breathtakingly beautiful. There is also a floral garland design made entirely of light blue and sapphire blue beads and stones that flows down the front of the bodice to the skirt.

2. Alena Mascarenas

Alena Mascarenas ranks at number two on the list this year, in a gown that she competed in at NAM Nationals. No doubt, Alena stole the show in this exquisite hot pink ball gown created from radiant silk charmeuse. It reminds us so much of the full skirted fuchsia gown that Olivia Jordan wore when she won Miss USA in 2015.

This gown makes us smile because it reminds us of everything glittery and magical about pageants. The full billowy skirt is so feminine and romantic, but the off-the-shoulder Bardot neckline of the bodice, along with the half sleeves, keeps it fresh and modern. The detail and artistry on the top half of this gown is immaculate! The design is a splendid floral arrangement of stones and beads in a myriad of colors, but trimmed at the neckline and sleeves in solid silver rhinestones.

1. Claudia Fether

The number one spot on our list goes to Claudia Fether, International Junior Miss Georgia Preteen 2019, and we’re sure you’ll agree that her gown is most deserving of the honor. Everything about this gown is intriguing and attention getting. It is truly a work of art!

First of all, we must discuss this unusual color. We would call this particular shade of light purplish-blue, periwinkle, which looks absolutely stunning on Claudia. Secondly, the fluffy, tulle-like tiered layers of the skirt are so angelic and ethereal, that she must have looked like she was floating on a cloud as she glided onstage.

The bodice is a halter style, and it’s totally embellished in periwinkle lace and complimenting pearls and beads. Claudia chose a matching pair of periwinkle earrings to complete her look.

The stunning ruffled hemline with a horse hair braid and unique gold adornment on the bodice make her stand out like a true queen. We loved the gold capped sleeves and open neckline of her gown! The lightness of the skirt plays so nicely into the heavily decorated top. This gown looks perfect with her sweet side-swept hair and dangle earrings. Beautiful choice, Alexa!

Cailee Blackington was voted in the ninth spot for the Top 10 Teen Evening Gowns of 2018. In this year's pageant, she graced the stage in her Barbie pink evening gown. Cailee is truly exquisite in this gown with pleats at the waistline and a full skirt. The stunning draped and open sleeves covered in beading really draw our attention upward to her gorgeous smile. The unique color make her stand out like a true queen. We loved the small shoulder straps and sweetheart neckline of her gown! Cailee’s mother also competed in pageants and we are sure she made her proud in this beautiful dress!

Anderson Moore was voted in the eighth spot for the Top 10 Teen Evening Gowns of 2018. At the 2018 Cinderella Internationals, she graced the stage in her one of a kind Alyce Paris yellow evening gown. The stunning mermaid silhouette and unique lace embellishments make her stand out like a true queen. We loved the bustled effect on the back of her gown! This dress embodies a fresh and youthful appeal while still showing some flare for this talented young queen!

7. Olivia Price

Olivia Price was voted in the seventh spot for the Top 10 Teen Evening Gowns of 2018. At Royal International Miss 2018, she graced the stage in her navy blue evening gown. What may start out as a beautiful and elegant gown, turns into a head turner with the addition of a peekaboo satin blue skirt. The stunning embellished sash and unique mesh v-neckline make her stand out like a true queen. We loved the depth and sweetness of her gown. It is sometimes hard to pull off a heavier gown, but Olivia makes it seem weightless. Her glide in this gown helped her snatch the title of Royal International Miss Jr. Teen. Wonderful job, Olivia!

6. Sierra Beck

Sierra Beck was voted in the sixth spot for the Top 10 Teen Evening Gowns of 2018. The ANTSO judges could not get enough of Sierra’s gorgeous megawatt smile in her red evening gown. In this year's pageant, she graced the stage in her trumpet style evening gown with capped sleeves and stunning details. The exquisite cherry red color is offset with ruby red beading in a unique pattern. The fit of the gown itself is reason enough to have her on the best of evening gown list! The gown is made complete with a full and light skirt that has just enough of a train to make her stand out. We loved the sophistication and elegance of her gown!

5. Lily Barfield

Lily Barfield was voted in the fifth spot for the Top 10 Teen Evening Gowns of 2018. The Royal International Miss Georgia Jr. Teen graced the stage in her beautiful violet colored evening gown. The stunning over the shoulder neckline is both sweet and subtle. What makes this dress is the black Swarovski-encrusted appliques that start on the bodice and continue downward in an angular style. The unique combination of ball gown and daring black embellishments make her stand out. We loved the stunning detail and fullness of her gown!

4. Autumn Narin

Autumn Narin was voted in the fourth spot for the Top 10 Teen Evening Gowns of 2018. At the 2018 National American Miss pageant, her Sherri Hill couture gown stunned the judges. She graced the stage in her gorgeous purple evening gown. The fit of this dress moves perfectly on Autumn and the neckline shows off the intricate beadwork. The coloring of her gown is so rich it could almost be purple and blue. We love the unique pointed waistline that adds just a little something to the skirt. The full skirt makes her stand out like a true queen. We loved the flow and neatness of her gown!

3. Naia Torres

Naia Torres was voted in the third spot for the Top 10 Teen Evening Gowns of 2018. Naia’s dreams came true in her two toned gown as she was crowned the 2018 USA National Jr. Teen. There is just so many amazing features about this dress! Her bodice has a mesh v-neckline in a smooth creamy color with a semi-backless back. The full skirt has a light pink hue to it with sparkles all over (a nod to Cinderella!). She graced the stage effortlessly with the horsehair hem leading the way. The stunning shoulder hugging straps and unique crystal waistband make her stand out. We loved how this embodied grace and elegance while still being young and unique.

2. Shayla Jackson

Shayla Jackson was voted in the second spot for the Top 10 Teen Evening Gowns of 2018. In this year's pageant, she graced the stage in her creamed colored evening gown. The stunning sheen and unique floral imprint make her truly stand out in the crowd. We loved the fit of the inner skirt and flare of her peekaboo skirt! While this style may seem like a traditional gown, the addition of the floral embellishment gives it just a bit of tang in all the right ways! Who could help but love this dress!

Top 10 Miss Evening Gowns of 2018

10. Lydia Tremaine

Lydia Tremaine was voted in the tenth spot for the Top 10 Miss Evening Gowns of 2018. Miss Indiana 2018 Lydia Tremaine looks like the perfect fairy tale princess who’s about to live happily ever after in this exquisite white ball gown. Everything about this gown is idyllic and pristine, and conjures up everything magical about pageants. The long sleeves and full billowy skirt create a classic silhouette and the high neckline brings all of your attention up to her pretty face. The white shimmery fabric is heaven against her fair complexion and silky dark hair and is reminiscent of Snow White at her finest. This Midwest beauty impressed us, as well as the judges!

9. Katherine McQuade

Katherine McQuade was voted in the ninth spot for the Top 10 Miss Evening Gowns of 2018. Katherine McQuade competed in this gown, as Miss Maine United States this year and I can only imagine how the judges’ jaws dropped when she stepped out on stage. Katherine is an incredibly striking young woman, but she is riveting in this particular shade of sapphire blue! The silky fabric seems to glow against her tanned skin and dark ebony hair. It’s a classic ball gown skirt but she chose a portrait style collar that has been pushed off the shoulder, revealing just a hint of her shoulder and décolleté. The gown also has a very wide waistband which serves to whittle her waist down even more, creating an hourglass silhouette.

8. Emily Tinsman

Emily Tinsman was voted in the eighth spot for the Top 10 Miss Evening Gowns of 2018. We just adored the unique gown that Miss Eastern Iowa 2018 Emily Tinsman wore when she competed this year. It can be very tricky to wear a gown with one color on the top and another on the bottom, especially if you are petite, but Emily pulled it off beautifully. The full skirt is made from a sumptuous white satin fabric, but the halter style bodice is a deeply saturated cobalt blue velvet. The neckline and belt are accented with a trim made from a variety of coordinating blue rhinestones that is ever so regal. The halter style is so flattering and sophisticated and enhances Emily’s lovely shoulders and back to perfection! All she needed for an accessory was her confidently dazzling smile!

7. Michaela Abelgas

The judges must have thought that Michaela Abelgas looked every inch the queen when she hit the stage in this stunner, because she took home the crown that night! Michaela Abelgas is the reigning 2018 USA National Miss, and you can bet that this gown had something to do with it! Now, we don’t know if Rumpelstiltskin created this fabric or not, but it looks like pure spun gold! It must have had such a magical shimmer under the lights when she walked across the stage. The gown is a column style and features an off the shoulder design and a sweetheart neckline, complete with a cape made from a gauzy golden material. The bodice and shoulder pieces are trimmed with about four inches of dazzling rhinestones, which ironically just happen to match all of the stones in her crown! Michaela may have looked like she walked out of a fairy tale in this dress, but her dreams definitely did come true in the end!

6. Faith Alyssa Behanna

Faith Alyssa Behanna was voted in the sixth spot for the Top 10 Miss Evening Gowns of 2018. When Miss Sun Coast Faith Alyssa Behanna competed at nationals in the USA National Miss pageant this year, she definitely radiated positivity! Red is a color that represents positivity and confidence and the crimson gown she wore was the perfect choice for this upbeat young lady. Faith created a movement known as “Radiate Positivity” in order to help people share their personal stories of overcoming struggles, and she carried that same message of hope throughout her entire pageant wardrobe. Her evening gown had a very full cut skirt, but because the fabric was an airy silk, it was lightweight and flowy, and made her look like she was walking on air. The strapless bodice was entirely encrusted in red and white rhinestones, and was the perfect balance for the solid color of the skirt. This dress was a fantastic example of fashion and branding coming together to represent a contestant in an authentic and elegant way to the judges!

5. Isabel Ticlo

Isabel Ticlo was voted in the fifth spot for the Top 10 Miss Evening Gowns of 2018. Miss Arizona America Isabel Ticlo got so much attention at nationals when she competed in this lovely lavender gown. Isabel is an alluring dark-haired beauty with an angel’s face that just lights up the stage! And, this particular shade of light purple only serves to make her even more radiant. Purple is said to be the color of royalty and Isabel certainly looks the part. The fit on this gown is flawless, making the most of her curves and yet making her look very regal and polished. The stoning around the neckline is delicate and sweet, and is very unique and intriguing. Isabel selected matching rhinestone earrings that were significant enough to make a statement but not so large that they distracted from the overall look, or took attention away from her ethereal face!

4. Athena McNinch

Athena McNinch was voted in the fourth spot for the Top 10 Miss Evening Gowns of 2018. If you’re going to be named after a goddess, you better dress like one, and Athena McNinch, definitely did when she took home the title of Miss Universe Guam 2018. This stunning beauty wore a jaw dropping silver fringe dress that stole the show at her home country’s pageant this year. This gown surely weighed more than she did because it is made exclusively of metal! The bodice is sheer netting covered in thousands of tiny silver beads and rhinestones and the skirt is a fabulous arrangement of fringe upon fringe. We don’t know how she walked in this fantastic creation because she is literally drenched in silver beads from head to toe! This was an unforgettable gown and it took an unforgettable woman to pull it off!

3. Catriona Gray

Catriona Gray was voted in the third spot for the Top 10 Miss Evening Gowns of 2018. As everyone in the pageant world knows by now, Catriona Gray wore this gown when she won the Miss Universe title this year. But, at the point when she modeled the now famous, “lava gown,” she was still a girl with a big dream, representing the Philippines. This is a woman who knows who she is and what works best for her and she undoubtedly worked it in this gown. The fabric did indeed look like fiery lava, and it seemed to come alive with every movement as she slinked seductively down the catwalk. The thigh-high slit was daring, but it enabled her to glide eloquently and it fit the overall vibe of her look. The most intriguing part of the strapless, column design is the curved split at the bodice. This small, creative detail gave this flashy gown a more feminine feel, and really revealed more imagination than skin. All in all, this was a fun, edgy take on a Jessica Rabbit classic for a glamorously, vivacious, modern queen!

2. Tamaryn Green

Tamaryn Green was voted in the second spot for the Top 10 Miss Evening Gowns of 2018. Miss South Africa, Tamaryn Green placed First Runner-Up at the Miss Universe pageant this year, while wearing this gown. She looked like a goddess in this exquisite cool white creation! Some girls wear white and they look pretty, but for Tamaryn, the color complemented her dark, silky straight hair and warm glowing skin in such a magical way. This is essentially a straight, strapless column gown made from a very delicate and sheer fabric, but what makes it so superb are the details. The small beaded fringe on the bottom adds just a touch of texture to an otherwise, smooth palette, and the glorious white cape extending from her shoulders is just divine! The fit on Tamaryn’s figure is impeccable, which makes her look even more magnificent! This is the perfect example of the right gown meeting the right girl at the right moment!

1. Marta Stepien

Marta Stepien was voted into the first place spot for the Top 10 Miss Evening Gowns of 2018. It is no shock at all that Miss Universe Canada 2018 Marta Stepien, made the number one spot on our list this year! Marta placed Top 10 at Miss Universe wearing this captivating one-of-a-kind creation, and we can understand why the judges loved it too. The design of the main gown is pretty simple and straightforward; it’s a snug fitting, column gown with a sweetheart neckline and spaghetti straps. But, as we often say, it's the little details that can make all the difference!

In Marta’s case, the fabric is a sheer bronze material shot through vertically with glittering gold thread that is curved in places to enhance her figure. All of that is not by accident! It’s actually a brilliant way to use fabric to make a dress. However, if the gown had been left just like that, it would not be as magnificent as it is. This design is all about the drama! The tiered overskirt is what makes this creation so theatrical and outrageous, and really sets it apart from anything else on the runway. Marta is obviously a lady who likes to stand out from the crowd and she wanted a gown that would turn the judge’s heads, and boy, did she get it! This is a confident queen who isn’t afraid to take a risk and we loved it!

Top 10 Ms. and Mrs. Evening Gowns of 2018

10. Veronika Stefanova

Veronika Stefanova was voted in the tenth spot for the Top 10 Ms. and Mrs. Evening Gowns of 2018.  In her pageant this year, Veronika wore a very classic and graceful strapless ball gown that made her look like Cinderella’s twin sister! This blonde beauty is a traditionalist, but she did makes some unique changes to this gown and those details are what made it so special. The back was lowered to give this gown just a bit of va-va-voom, while still keeping the elegance and sophistication of the original silhouette. We love the simplicity and modern take on this classic style!

9. Kayzie Weedman

Kayzie Weedman was voted in the ninth spot for the Top 10 Ms. and Mrs. Evening Gowns of 2018. Mrs. Indiana America 2018 Kayzie Weedman competed at the Mrs. America pageant wearing this delicate, lacy confection. Among a sea of other white evening gowns, Kayzie’s was lovely, romantic and one-of-a-kind. It is a modified halter style at the top with a semi-mermaid style skirt. The lace pattern is carried strategically down the front of the dress, while the attached cape is a simple, silky fabric without any embellishment. She chose to wear simple earrings that did not overwhelm the look, which was exactly the right thing to do. Anything heavy would have detracted from this angelic and delightful lady.

8. Mollie Potgieter

Mollie Potgieter was voted in the eighth spot for the Top 10 Ms. and Mrs. Evening Gowns of 2018. Mollie Potgieter is a very remarkable woman, who is no stranger to pageants. She has competed in the Miss, Mrs. and Teen Arkansas International pageants, and is the first state titleholder to hold all three division titles! This year, she was crowned Mrs. Arkansas International 2018 and won her third Evening Gown Award as well as the Community Service Award! With a track record like that, it’s no wonder she made our list! This queen knows how to rock an evening gown!

At this year’s pageant she chose to wear this luxurious purple lace column gown with a satin organza overskirt. This is a very sexy but sophisticated gown for a married woman, and although it is quite low-cut, it is balanced with just the right amount of elegance to make it appropriate for this pageant system. Mollie selected over-the-top, royal purple rhinestone earrings to accessorize her look, which obviously was the right choice, because the judges loved it!

7. Christine Voloso-Aguilon

Christine Voloso-Aguilon was voted in the seventh spot for the Top 10 Ms. and Mrs. Evening Gowns of 2018. Ms. Christine Voloso-Aguilon (Marabut) placed 4th Runner Up when she competed in the Mutya han Samar 2018 pageant this year. She wore a mesmerizing, form fitting, strapless column gown reminiscent of an old Hollywood movie star! The photograph does not do this gown justice, because it is a truly breathtaking creation that had to be seen to be believed.

The sheer gold silk was completely covered in shimmery gold stones of various sizes, from the bodice to the knees. There was a hip-high slit on the right side, which was very dramatic and sultry, but which also served a practical purpose and allowed Christine to strut across the stage confidently. This was such a stand out gown that all she needed to complete her look was a pair of coordinating gold earrings and simple matching bracelet. A truly unforgettable gown on an unforgettable woman!

6. Lauren Weeks

Lauren Weeks was voted in the sixth spot for the Top 10 Ms. and Mrs. Evening Gowns of 2018. When Mrs. California International 2018 Lauren Weeks took the stage in this mesmerizing white gown, she must have known that it was a winner! You can tell from the radiant look on her face that felt beautiful. Obviously the combination of a gorgeous gown and a stunning woman convinced the judges that she was the one, because she captured the title of Mrs. International 2018, that night! White gowns are worn by thousands of contestants every year during competition, but this one is quite original.

It has a combination deep sweetheart halter top, but it is just a bit different because a choker piece has been added at the neck. This cut is extremely flattering on Lauren’s trim physique and the fitted design throughout the torso further emphasizes her curvy, feminine figure. The gown is then embellished with pearls and rhinestones from top to hem, giving an otherwise simple palette some very interesting texture. This gown is a wonderful example of taking a traditional look but making it uniquely your own.

5. Nicole Zwiercan

Nicole Zwiercan was voted in the fifth spot for the Top 10 Ms. and Mrs. Evening Gowns of 2018. Mrs. USA Universe 2018, Nicole Zwiercan is a stunning woman with a strong sense of style and a supreme amount of confidence! It’s no surprise that she selected an over-the-top evening gown that was both feminine and flamboyant for her pageant this year. This gown is fun, fantastic and unapologetically theatrical! The top is an off-the-shoulder portrait style, with a deep v cut into the front. If the design had not included the v-cut, it would have made the bodice too adolescent and visually top heavy.

The skirt base is straight with a series of crinoline layers banded with horsehair braid in varying lengths. This adds a lot of visual interest, as well as movement and drama when she walks. The final touch was the rhinestone embellished belt that nips in her tiny waist, bringing balance to the entire shape. Some may think that a gown like this is risky, but if you’ve got a bold personality and a strong sense of self, then by all means show it! We love Nicole’s fashion flair and her inspiring ability to be totally herself!

4. Brittany Wagner

Brittany Wagner was voted in the fourth spot for the Top 10 Ms. and Mrs. Evening Gowns of 2018. When Brittany Wagner competed in the Ms. America pageant this year, she chose a cobalt blue gown that obviously the judges loved her in because they chose her as the winner! Brittany is a striking black-haired beauty with sparkling blue eyes and this long sleeved blue gown is just breathtaking on her. The bodice is made entirely of delicate blue lace and includes a low-cut v-neckline that helps to bring the eye right up to her stunning face. The skirt is a straight column style with a slit made from a vibrant velvet fabric. A voluminous A-line overskirt is then attached to it at the waist with a jeweled belt made from coordinating rhinestones. Brittany selected large attention-getting earrings in a similar shade, and they gave her a nice pop of color as they peeked out through her long locks. This queen is radiant and regal in this sophisticated royal blue creation!

3. Jodi Byers

Jodi Byers was voted in the third spot for the Top 10 Ms. and Mrs. Evening Gowns of 2018. Mrs. Michigan Jodi Byers chose a sophisticated nude and silver body conscious gown when she competed at Mrs. America this year. The slinky silhouette fit this pretty brunette’s svelte figure to perfection! The gown is a clingy sheath style with a very low-cut neckline and cap sleeves. It is made from a delicate lace fabric that is over-embellished with a spectacular array of silver and bronze beads, sequins and rhinestones. An overskirt of shimmery gold organza has been added to the dress for a touch of drama and elegance. This is such a dazzling gown and the color and style was an ideal choice for this lovely lady!

2. Patricia Javier

Patricia Javier was voted in the second spot for the Top 10 Ms. Evening Gowns of 2018. Patricia Javier is a successful singer, entertainer and actress in the Phillipines. Now she can add pageant queen to her resume, as she was crowned Mrs. Universe Philippines 2019! For her pageant this year, Patricia decided to make a bold statement and she chose this dramatic, awe-inspiring ball gown to do it in! 

This unique creation was made from yards and yards of sumptuous cream fabric and then covered in hundreds of exquisite three-dimensional fabric flowers, all in tones of ivory and white. The cut of the bodice is a very simple tank style, but it is also covered entirely in delicate flowers and beads. This gown is practically a museum piece! It must have been so exciting to wear such a captivating couture gown on stage. Patricia is certainly a lucky woman to have worn a spectacular one-of-a-kind creation while winning such a prestigious title!

1. Samantha Reinecke

Samantha Reinecke was voted into the first place spot for the Top 10 Ms. and Mrs. Evening Gowns of 2018. Wow! We can absolutely understand why Mrs. United States 2018 Samantha Reinecke won her crown in this gown! And, we are simply thrilled to see her in the number one spot on our list this year. This is one of the most fabulously jaw dropping gowns that we have seen in a very long time in the Ms. and Mrs. category. One of the very first things we noticed is that the fit is impeccable, and that is crucial when competing in evening gown, especially in a prestigious pageant. The fabric is quite eye catching and this particular shade of silver grey is very rare, and it is just glorious on her.

We are also simply enthralled with all of the distinctive details. The one shoulder strap style looks fantastic on Samantha and shows off her sculpted shoulders and arms. The ruching over the bust line ends in a wrapped empire waist, which makes her middle look teeny tiny, and creates a very flattering v-shape to her upper body. Then, that cool looking peplum is gathered up on her right side only, as opposed to being full in the front, and that is a very distinguishing feature. The skirt is extremely fitted around her hips and then flares out into a moderate trumpet design. The overall silhouette is so feminine and proportionate and creates such a beautiful hourglass shape on Samantha. She went with a sleek and simple updo, which was brilliant because her hair does not detract at all from this scene-stealing gown!
