Experiencing the Miss USA Pageant

By Harleigh Hearts

I was very fortunate to be able to attend the Miss USA pageant this past weekend in Las Vegas. What an incredible weekend it was! I have said it before, but I will say it again……being an intern at Mac Duggal is a dream come true for me. My weekend started off with a VIP Welcome party for the Teen USA contestants hosted by Mac Duggal on Saturday at Top Golf. First let me just say that it was so great to get to meet the Teen USA contestants from across the country as well as the current Miss Teen USA, Katherine Haik. They were all not only beautiful girls but also very sweet! Katherine was kind enough to answer questions and give the girls some advice about what to expect when they compete at the Miss Teen USA pageant in July.

Mac Duggal had a raffle with all the girls taking home great prizes including each contestant receiving a Lumee Case for their iPhones! The girls were able to hit a few golf balls, get to know each other and they finished the day swimming in the pool at Top Golf. I wish them all the best of luck next month as they compete to become the next Miss Teen USA!

On Sunday, I attended the Miss USA pageant held at the T-Mobile arena. I was so excited to be able to watch the pageant live. My favorite portion of the Miss USA pageant has always been the evening gowns. This year, I was especially looking forward to seeing the evening gowns that had been designed by Mac Duggal worn by Miss Delaware, Miss Florida, Miss Maine, Miss Oregon, Miss North Dakota, Miss New Mexico and Miss Wyoming. I am incredibly proud to be able to say that I intern at one of the top designers of evening gowns….IN THE WORLD, which made being able to see the gorgeous Mac Duggal gowns in person on the Miss USA stage that much more exciting! Take a look:


There are so many factors involved in choosing the right evening gown, whether it’s for the Miss USA pageant or one of the many other great pageant systems. The evening gown you choose should reflect your personal style, should be a design that works well for your body type and a color that is complimentary to your hair color and skin tone. It’s also important to remember that stage lighting is different than regular lighting, so you want to choose a gown that will look great on stage. The gown should also be comfortable and easy for you to walk in.

Mac Duggal has been designing winning evening gowns for pageants for over a decade so if you are competing in a pageant, make sure to check out the Mac Duggal pageant collection at a retailer near you, or the new Royalty Collection. Just remember, you may not be Miss USA but you can look like Miss USA at your next pageant with a stunning Mac Duggal evening gown!
