Dinaleigh Baxter is Miss Ohio USA 2017!
Miss Ohio USA 2017, Dinaleigh Baxter, represented the state of Ohio last Thursday night as she competed for Miss USA 2017 in Las Vegas, Nevada, during the preliminary competition. Dinaleigh chose this simplistic, black velvet gown that is enhanced with a fuchsia cape.
A black gown can certainly be a good choice for a variety of contestants, but a velvet black gown can be very striking on stage! The back of this gown is what sets it apart from being a simple and elegant black gown. The pop of the fuchsia cape adds personality and style.
Dinaleigh's evening gown presents a simplistic mermaid silhouette, tank sleeves with a plunging, sweetheart vee neckline, and a fuchsia cape that cascades down from her tank sleeves. This style of gown fits perfectly with Dinaleigh's petite frame and enhances her delicate curves. The bust area of her gown is tailored to a T and adds sex appeal with her plunging neckline and nude mesh illusion.
Dinaleigh really put the focus on her two-tone gown as she wore her hair back in a ponytail and polished the look with elongated, multi-shaped black and clear crystal earrings. Since this gown has a dramatic cape, I'm happy to see that Dinaleigh did wear her hair pulled back. I also appreciate her theme of keeping this style very classic.
This look was a bold gamble, and although Dinaleigh didn't make the Top 10, she scored a HIT with the gown!
