Wow! It's been a while since I've been typing on my little Wix Editor. I have missed all you caffeinated queens. Before I get into today's topic, I wanted to take a moment to apologize for my absence. Life has gotten extremely busy for me in the past month! My big move to Boston is quickly approaching. I've been packing, prepping for school, and wrapping up my last to-do list items at the University of Maryland before I leave. Add that to submitting a research abstract to the International Society of Developmental Psychobiology and drafting the manuscript of a research paper and I'm just about ready to pull my hair out. Needless to say - there are some exciting things in my future and I can't wait to share all of these updates with you!
Now, without further ado...
COVID-19 changed everything for everyone -- and that includes the pageant community. RIP summer pageant season 2020! But, just because we didn't get to watch (or compete) in all our favorite pageants this summer, doesn't mean we can't still be following and supporting these amazing young women. So, I'm so excited to share my favorite headshots from this year's Miss Teen USA class.
At first glance at the headshots, I was incredibly impressed. There are a lot of gorgeous young girls this year that all put effort, styling, and personality into their photos! It was a challenge to find my top 5! Link to all official headshots is below. Let me know who your favorites are.
Honorable Mention - Pennsylvania Kiara Lin
I love the softness of this headshot. Her hair looks so smooth and her smile is absolutely perfect!
Honorable Mention - Georgia Shayla Jackson
Wow, another amazing smile. I love how bright her smile and eyes look.
5. Miss District of Columbia Teen USA - Sydney Jackson
The lighting in this photo is everything! Everything about this shot screams FUN to me, as if the image was captured mid-laugh. I'm also a sucker for an off-the shoulder top in headshots to really accentuate those beautiful collar bones.
4. Miss Texas Teen USA - Anissa Mendez
This photo truly draws you into her eyes. I love the closeness of the crop which makes her face the true focus of the photo.
3. Miss Louisiana Teen USA - Sydney Taylor
Can you believe this girl is only 19? I love how warm this photo is. It's the perfect coloring to accentuate her warm brown eyes. And if I've said it once I've said it 100 times - I love off-the-shoulder tops!
2. Miss North Carolina Teen USA - Peyton Brown
I love everything about this photo! The delicate jewelry and light makeup really draw you into her face and her eyes are captivating! The styling is absolute perfection.
1. Miss Mississippi Teen USA - Zoe Bigham
This headshot really stuck out to me for a lot of reasons! The completely off-the-shoulder top, the floral print, the straight hair, the zoomed out crop all set this picture apart. I love the definition of her collarbones and the softness of her smile. Plus, hello eyebrows! Thick eyebrows are in and this girl is rocking them!
