Pageant Daily

25, February 2020

Hey there!

You've landed on the Pageant Daily - a daily newsletter with FREE coaching, resources, features, practice questions and sometimes, even great deals! Our goal is to help you WIN your pageant. Want to receive our newest edition daily in your inbox? Scroll to the bottom of the page and sign up for free!

Where can I find a pageant interview dress?

You can find pageant interview dresses off-the-rack in high-end department stores. Dig through the sale racks for great buys on designer dresses and suits. You may grab one for a steal and can use the money you saved on a tailor to make sure your find fits you perfectly. For even more budget-friendly options don’t discount retail discounters like T.J. Maxx or Nordstrom Rack, where you'll find great dress departments.

If you want to make an entrance in the interview room in a one-of-a-kind look, consider working with a pageant designer. Many will custom make interview dresses, just as they do pageant gowns or talent costumes. This option will cost more but the fit will be perfect.

In addition to evening gowns, many pageant apparel shops have started offering a nice selection of interview dresses. If there isn’t a pageant store near you, many also sell online or can order for direct shipment to you. Our retailer directory allows you to search specifically for retailers that carry interview apparel or any of your wardrobe needs.

You can also shop specifically for your interview look through Pageant Planet’s online dress directory. The nice thing about this feature is that we guarantee you'll get the item as described or you'll get your money back. It's resale pricing with the protection of buying from a quality source, win-win!

Beef with the prez.

It's no secret CNN and President Trump aren't always on the best terms. Remember Jim Acosta's White House credential? Now the news network is seemingly worried the president will go hungry during his state visit to India while scolding him to eat his veggies. Beef won't be on the menu in the largely Hindu nation, where cows are revered as sacred and the leader is a vegetarian. The network made a point to quote an anonymous Trump insider who said, "I have never seen him eat a vegetable."

Virus spreads to Wall Street.

Not literally, but the Dow did plunge 950 points at Monday's opening bell over fear of the effects of Coronavirus on the global economy. Nasdaq and the S&P 500 were both down around four percent. Travel stocks like airlines and resorts took big hits. The challenge to investors is that no one knows how long the epidemic will last.

Tuesday's Titleholder of the Day is Katherine Nicole Torres Haragutchi, Young Miss Florida American Teen 2019/2020!

"I am American while my mother is from the Philippines and my father is from Brazil."

Darcy Castro is a writer, creator and an advocate. She is an experienced pageant queen with a heart of gold, and among her pageantry successes, has won the Elite National American Woman of Service 2019.

Darcy became quite the successful pageant competitor in her time competing as a Miss, winning several local titles. After taking time to focus on her career and her family, she returned to the pageant stage in her 40s and won her first national title.

She is a mother of four who devotes her time to her family, her work as a marketing communications consultant and professional writer, and to her community. Darcy has dedicated copious amounts of her time to serving her community in many different ways, and has received numerous awards for her efforts.

Darcy is now an advocate for helping children with parents diagnosed with a brain tumor, as Darcy’s father suffered a brain tumor when she was younger. She has now written a detailed book about her experience to help children ages 7-13 years old who may be experiencing similar circumstances.

Darcy’s other platform is focused on respecting ourselves and our community. Using her talents as a professional writer and her time in pageantry she has created a podcast and blog called ‘Cultivating Respect.’

To hear more about the life of Darcy Castro and to discover coaching moments inside of her story listen to this week’s podcast.

If you've been in the industry, you know that not every pageant is a good fit for every girl (or guy). Instead of spending thousands of dollars to figure out which systems are right for you, answer a couple quick questions and we'll match you with systems that meet your needs and desires.

We've really taken the guess work out of this for you. You're totally welcome.

The best of the best.

I am an English teacher and media specialist. I enjoy reading the many different articles Pageant Planet has to offer. However, I can not begin to tell you how many errors I find in grammar, spelling, punctuation, and sentence structure in the articles. Being an English teacher, these errors are just something that I see that probably no one else even notices. All the pageant systems spend a great deal of time discussing the art of effective communication and it is something that each contestant strives towards. Written communication is just as important as verbal communication. Again, I enjoy reading the many different articles, however, hire a proofreader for your articles!

Miss Universe Puerto Rico IS Puerto Rican! Stop being part of the fake and sensationalist news! She represents all of the Puerto Rican that for many reasons lives in USA. She speaks Spanish with a cute accent for obvious reasons, she can communicate successfully in Spanish. If she won the crown is because she complete with all of the requirements of the Miss Universe Puerto Rico organization. She is is beautiful, sweet and very smart. Your post should says something positive about every girl and not trying to being part of the controversy.
