    Our favorite dress designers are taking over the Miss America pageant left and right! Just last year, we had announced that Tony Bowls was the Official Evening Gown Sponsor for Miss America 2015.

  • Olivia Jordan is Our Miss USA 2015!

    We love our pageants at Rissy Roo's, and one of the biggest pageants out there was held this past Sunday night (June 13, 2015): the Miss USA 2015 pageant! At the event, Miss USA 2014 Nia Sanchez passed on her crown to Olivia Jordan, formerly Miss Oklahoma, to be crowned the new Miss USA 2015! While all of the contestants were beautiful (especially in their Sherri Hill and Mac Duggal dresses!) and gifted, the the Oklahoma native truly did stand out in the from the 50 other women vying for the crown. After all, could you blame the judges for picking her just based off of the beautiful pink gown she wore, alone?!

    Watch the big moment as Olivia is announced Miss USA 2015 and crowned:

All gorgeous ladies!  Continue reading

  • Mac Duggal Hosts Miami Fashion Show During Miss Universe 2014!

    Miss Universe 2014, Paulina Vega, was finally crowned last week, and one of our favorite dress designers was of course at the forefront of the pageant providing gorgeous gowns for all of the contestants: Mac Duggal! The dress designer's latest prom styles and never-before-seen pageant gowns were on display in Miami from the red carpet, to the runway, to the Miss Universe pageant. In combination with La Casa Hermosa and AMerican Model Magazine, Mac Duggal hosted a special Miami fashion show to kick off the Miss Universe Pageant!

    The event was hosted at the historic Beauville Beach Resort in Miami, a perfect place to watch such gorgeous gowns walk the runway! American Model Magazine started the evening off with a photo shoot where all of the models got to show off their Mac Duggal gowns in front of a beautiful backdrop. In the photo below, American Model Magazine models are showing off Mac Duggal 4152 (left) and Mac Duggal 65024 (right).

    After the photo shoot, it was time to start walking the red carpet! On the red carpet, Miss South Florida USA, Lisa Opie interviewed Mac Duggal to learn all about what's going on in the pageant world. He spoke about the latest trends and his contribution to all things pageant! Watch the interview here:

  • Miss Universe 2014: Miss Columbia, Paulina Vega!

    All of the hard work of the Miss Universe 2014 contestants finally came to an end this past Sunday, and our new Miss Universe has officially be crowned! Out of contestants from over 80 countries, one pageant queen was chosen: Miss Columbia Paulina Vega! Congrats, Paulina! Last year, Miss Venezuela, Gabriela Isler, took the Miss Universe crown, so for the second year in a row, the crown is being worn by a Latina.

    This year's Miss Universe pageant was held in our home turf, in the USA (Miami, FL to be exact!). And, that's our very own Miss USA, Nia Sanchez, all the way to the right in the picture above. We were, of course, rooting for her, and she made it all the way to be the first runner-up! The second runner-up was Miss Ukraine, Diana Harkusha, pictured in the middle above.

    But, all eyes were on Paulina for good reason. Donald Trump, who owns the pageant, said that many thought that Paulina would be the Miss Universe Pageant Queen a few weeks ago when all of the contestants first arrived in Miami. Trump said, "from the minute she walked into the building, people said, 'She's a star.'" Trump and everyone else was definitely correct!

    Paulina is a 22-year-old student of business administration from Barranquilla, Columbia. You could tell that she definitely has the poise of a business woman from the question and answer portion of the pageant! Professional skateboarder Rob Dyrdek asked her what women could learn from men. She answered strongly and confidently that women can learn equality from men. Watch her response here (at the 4:15 mark):

    Of course, our favorite part of the entire pageant were the gowns, though! Miss Columbia looked absolutely gorgeous in her sparkly silver deep v-neck gown. This is hands-down a look that's perfect for prom! For a sparkly look like Paulina's, go with BG Haute E01017.

    It's a glamorously sexy full-length gown that features a deep v-neckline, beaded and sequined shoulder straps, a sultry open back with intersecting strap overplay, and a fitted bodice with a seductive side slit. It's a classic look with just the right amount of glam!

  • Miss America 2015: Miss New York, Kira Kazantsev!

    We've kept you posted on the Miss America 2015 competition for a couple of months now because one of our favorite designers, Tony Bowls, is the exclusive evening gown sponsor of the event...and the wonderful pageant has officially come to an end as of last night! We're very excited to announce that Miss America 2015 is Kira Kazantsev of New York!

    Does something about that statement sound familiar? It's because this is the third year in a row that Miss New York took the Miss America crown...that's right, this is a threepeat! Last year, Nina Davuluri took the Miss America 2014 crown, and she must have been very happy to pass it down to her fellow New Yorker, Kira, last night.  That's not all, though...even Miss America 2013 was from New York, Mallory Hytes Hagan!

    While Kira is our new Miss America, all of the girls looked stunning... especially in their Tony Bowls dresses! The first runner up is Courtney Garrett, Miss Virginia, the second runner up was Ashton Campbell, Miss Arkansas, the third runner up was Victoria Cowen, Miss Florida, and the fourth runner up was Lauren Kuhn, Miss Massachusetts.

    Kira's got the smarts and talent all rolled up into one - she's a vocalist, and is a future law student, having been accepted to Fordham's law school. For her talent portion, Kira surprised everyone by singing Pharrell Williams' "Happy" while sitting cross-legged on stage and banging a red plastic cup on the floor! And, she named combatting sexual assault in the military as the issue which she would want female U.S. Senators to press their male counterparts. She clearly has a very unique mind, very deserving of the Miss America crown!

    Kira was crowned in a stunning backless Tony Bowls couture white long sleeved gown. She looked so elegant and graceful in it! If you want her look for Prom, or Homecoming, go with Tony Bowls Evenings TBE11457, a long sleeve jersey slim-fitting gown with beaded triangle bodice inset, beaded center front, softly gathered front bodice, beaded cuffs, open back with cowl drape, and a skirt with a flared back and train.
