This dress is a beautiful and sophisticated choice various age divisions. The surplice V-neckline is both flattering and conservative. The ruched detailing at the waist creates a beautiful silhouette, accentuating the natural curves of the body. The brooch adds a touch of glamour making it perfect for pageantry.
When it comes to a pageant interview, it’s important to make a strong first impression, and this dress certainly delivers. It is professional and polished, yet still trendy and stylish. It is also versatile enough to be worn in a variety of pageant systems and competitions.
In terms of color, a neutral shade like black or navy would be a great choice for a pageant interview. However, if you want to add a pop of color, a rich jewel tone like emerald green or sapphire blue would be stunning and memorable.
The Stretch Square Neck 3/4 Bell Sleeve Tie Front Midi Dress is a great choice for a junior teen pageant contestant for a few reasons.
The dress is made from a stretch fabrication material, which provides comfort and allows for ease of movement. The square neckline and 3/4 bell sleeves add a touch of professionalism and elegance to the dress, while still remaining age-appropriate. The tie front embellishment adds a fun and youthful element, making it perfect for a junior teen pageant contestant.
Firstly, this dress exudes femininity and elegance, with the off-the-shoulder neckline and ruffle detail creating a soft and romantic look. Second, its serving Princess Diana Revenge dress. Add a pearl necklace and close toe, pointed, black heels to this dress to get even closer to recreating her iconic look.
This dress is perfect for a pageant contestant who wants to make a strong first impression while still maintaining a professional appearance. The sheath silhouette is both classic and flattering, skimming the body in all the right places. The stretch material allows for ease of movement, which is important for a pageant contestant who will be sitting and standing for extended periods of time.
When it comes to styling, keep it simple and sophisticated. Pair with classic pumps or strappy heels, and keep jewelry minimal and elegant.
This style of dress is perfect for pageants, as it provides coverage while still showcasing the contestant’s youthful and feminine side. Since the hem is a little short, I would suggest dressing contestants with proportions of shorter legs and a longer torso, in this style. The dress provides a very chic and clean look that can be paired with minimal metallic jewelry, and heels, to communicate affluence and prosperity.
Wow! I cannot believe I found this deal! This Adrianna Papell dress is very similar to a popular Chiara Boni style, that retails for more than double the price of this dress. It’s a very complimentary style on many body types in the interview room. I’m so happy I can share this designer inspired style with you! 
Since this piece is more affordable than the Chiara Boni style, I suggest investing in alterations. Just judging from the stock photo, I can see that the sleeves needs to be taken in, or even shortened, to create a younger look.
From the color to the cut, this pink blazer dress is exceptional. Personally, I’m a big fan of blazer dresses because they combine the professionalism of a suit with the femininity of a dress. Typically blazer dresses are used in systems that extend to the international level. The Miss Universe organization is a great example of a pageant system where you’ll see contestants, at all levels, wearing an interview blazer dress. 
This one shoulder bow dress is perfect for the interview room, with a small alteration. Unless you’re over six feet tall, the hem of this dress with likely shorten your proportions. Simply asks a tailor to hem the skirt, or if you have some sewing skills this is a simple alteration you can make at home. This dress comes in a variety of colors. However, I reccomend that blondes or redheads wear this darker shade of blue. 
Create your own sunshine in this bold yellow interview dress. The structured puff sleeves can visually change your proportions. If you’d like to create the illusion of a smaller waist, widening your shoulder width will help you to do so. Considering that most pageant contestants aren’t 5’10 or taller, it’s likely that you’ll need to shorten the hem of this dress to suit your proportion.
