Miss Teen of Kentucky 2016 Evening Gown
Shelby Bellah dazzled on stage with this multi-colored, beaded white gown as she won her title of Miss Teen of Kentucky 2016!
White can be such a hard color to pull off on stage because of skin tones and hair colors, but it can really pop against the stage backdrop. In this case, the top is full of gold, burgundy, blue and crystal beading that really complement Shelby's skin tone!
The bottom of Shelby's gown is white with a ruffle finish, creating a classic and elegant look. (Read: How to Win in a White Gown
Shelby's gown has tank sleeves and a sweetheart neckline with a mermaid ruffle skirting.
The top design of her gown features a more mature and feminine look as the beading design continues until the ruffle design consumes the bottom skirting.
Simple crystal earrings are worn to tie into the beading on Shelby's gown. I'm happy to see she kept her jewelry to a minimum since the beading is so extensive.

Shelby's hair is styled down and in sleek curls, really drawing the attention to her beautiful facial features.
This gown's arrangement is a dazzling HIT! Way to go, Shelby!
