Question: What is the first step to take to enter a beauty pageant?
Before entering pageants on the state or national level, potential contestants should first consider entering a local pageant. Smaller in size and in venue, local pageants will help contestants become accustomed to being in front of an audience and hopefully overcome stage fright.
Question: How should one prepare for a pageant?
Contestants should make sure they understand all the requirements before entering the pageant, including pageant fees, talent categories, clothing, and judging criteria. Some pageants are more glamorous, while others take a less ostentatious, more natural approach.
Question: What are a few suggestions for clothing?
Experts recommend wearing clothing that is age appropriate. For girls age 13 through 16, a knee-length dress or gown with heels is acceptable. For those over the age of 16, a gown with heels is recommended. Experts recommend choosing any color for the gown but black.
