Jacque chose a rich jewel tone that complements her caramel hair and fair complexion.
The stunning jersey fabric shows the true hue of the gown's color and gives Jacque's overall look an air of sophistication.
Jacque's evening gown presents a simple column silhouette followed by a dramatic train, off-the-shoulder sleeves sloping down into a plunging vee neckline, and is all lined with tasteful crystal detailing in an assortment of colors.
This silhouette bears no secrets. Every inch of Jacque's body is perfectly accentuated by this fitted silhouette.
Jacque opted for a highly revealing bodice to balance the simplistic silhouette. A plunging vee neckline highlights her collarbone and gorgeous shoulders. This element, along with the off-the-shoulder sleeves, adds tasteful sex appeal to her overall look.
The off-the-shoulder sleeves also give the illusion that Jacque's waistline is slimmer than it really is.
I absolutely love the way this fabric moves as she walks, especially with the long train following behind her. What can't be seen in this photo is the detail on the back of the gown, which is as equally as stunning as the front.

Jacque's hair is styled beautifully in large soft curls, pulled behind her shoulders to showcase the incredible neckline of her gown, no doubt. This hairstyle of choice showcases her facial features impeccably.
She completed her ensemble with understated crystal earrings with teal accent stones that match her gown exceptionally well.
There is absolutely no surprise that Jacque captured the crown in this stunning evening gown. This gown is a HIT in every area! Excellent choice, Jacque. We wish you luck at Miss USA 2017.
