Pageant Press: To The Rescue

Before a pageant contestant begins to fear forgetting her talent lyrics or slipping on the runway, she has to worry about her luggage making it to the pageant location! This year it happened to our reigning Miss America, as covered here.


Happens every year,it seems.

This time it was reigning Miss America Lauren Nelson whose luggage didn't arrive.

She found herself scrambling to find an outfit to wear for the red carpet at Barneys New York at the Palazzo grand opening.

She ran over to Fashion Show mall and picked out a blue dress and silver sandals at BCBG.

By midday Friday, Nelson's luggage still hadn't made it, putting in doubt her Friday photo shoot with the Review-Journal at the Palazzo.

So our Susan Stapleton, editor of the R-J's fashion section, image, dashed over to Saks Fifth Avenue at Fashion Show mall and borrowed five outfits and three pairs of shoes for Nelson.

Nelson picked out a gold Nanette Lepore dress and Jimmy Choo shoes for her image cover shot, which appears next Friday.

Jimmy Choos?!? How unfortunate for her! :)
