A new updated look for Miss America?!?

Some of you may know that my family and I are "slightly" obsessed with pageants. Well we gathered together this past Saturday once again to see who our new Miss America would be... There had been talk that Miss Utah was a favorite which was even more incentive to watch. Well needless to say Utah didn't win, she only made it to the Top 16 but was voted in by the public which I think is a huge honor. There had also been talk about a "new" look for Miss America, as opposed to the big hair and lots of make-up that had become so common. If you take a look at the picture to the right, I feel that both Miss Wisconsin (in the red) and Miss California(in the gold) had much more updated looks and wore dresses that I think I would wear (if they had sleeves of course!)

This is Miss Wisconsin's candidate profile from the Miss America website... I think she looks so naturally beautiful which is something that a lot of American women either don't have or don't appreciate. For me Miss America should be someone who can throw on a hat and wear no make-up and be just as beautiful cuz her beauty comes from the inside! Not to mention Miss Wisconsin is the ONLY contestant who didn't either sing or dance for her talent. She played the electric violin and it was amazing. Miss California sang but it was a very hard opera piece that was super impressive!!

Ummm are we at the ice-capades?!? Holy crap since when are see-through netting and crystals in style?? and is the slit really necessary since 90% of the dress is see-through... I am wondering ;)

Is that a cloud she's wearing??? Ok so I know she sang "Somewhere over the rainbow" but was a representation of the sky really necessary!!! Can you honestly say that is a modern dress cuz I swear I saw it in the 90's and not since then!!
I do have to admit that my mom said that Miss America was on Regis and Kelly on monday and that she seemed like she was a really cute girl and she looked better than she did at the pageant. So o.k. she is cute and nice and looked amazing in her swimsuit.. But was she the best candidate and the most talented??? No Way and her look was by far the most out-dated look of ANY of the contestants... That is what you get for having lame celebrity judges that wouldn't know real talent if it hit them right between the eyes!! I think they should let qualified people judge the pageant like they do at the state level so the right person can win next time :)
