I am in love with the one shoulder cold shoulder look. It’s like a dress remix! Now, the pattern on this dress looks simple, until you really take a good look at the stones and beading on this gown. Miqueal-Symone herself does a good job of making you do a double take!

Do you think Ivonne would be willing to sell me her gown? No, seriously, That’s how in love with it I am. From a practicality perspective, the front slit really helps with a strong walk—for me personally. Walking in gowns is tough work.

She kept her same gown, but I know Janick was her best self in it. It was modern, stylish, and all things complex. The sheer on her legs complimented by the outburst of beading on the bodice made her look like an explosion of stars and light. She was spectacular.

Julie was a force on stage, through both her well spoken answers and her evening gown. What I loved was the visual embodiment of the “universe” in this gown.
