Details:  Style meets sophistication on the runway.  This segment celebrates the versatility and elegance of ensembles, showcasing contestants' flair for fashion and individuality.  We encourage contestants to embrace the confident and dynamic modeling style typically associated with the Miss USA pageants, rather than the more conservative approach often seen in the Miss America competitions.  This is not a traditional fashion show where stoicism reigns supreme; we want to see personality, charisma and flair on the runway.  Smiles are not only welcomed but encouraged as contestants showcase their individuality and confidence.  Let your inner monarch shine as you take the stage with grace, poise, and a touch of girl-power!

This segment is all about showcasing your poise and style in a stunning evening gown.  Your gown should reflect your individuality
and fashion sense, so choose something that makes you feel confident and glamorous.  As you glide down the runway, remember to exude confidence and charm.  Your gown should stun under the spotlight, showcasing your silhouette.  This is your moment to shine, so make every step a statement of elegance, grace, and sovereignty.
 
Details:  When modeling your evening gown, envision yourself as the reigning sovereign, radiating confidence and grace as if the crown is already yours.  Walk the stage with poise and elegance, commanding attention with every step.  Your posture should be regal, with shoulders back and head held high.  Exude a sense of inner strength and confidence.  Remember, the mark of a true sovereign is the presence they carry, even without their regalia.  Embrace your inner sovereign and let your presence captivate the audience!
