Finalists should wear a floor-length gown that is age appropriate and reflects their personality.
Young Miss through Classy Ms. finalists are permitted to have a conservative slit in their gown of not more than 3" above the knee.
Plunging neck lines, side cut outs, nude areas that show the torso through the gown, or super low open backs are NOT permitted in any age division. V-necks are allowed as long as there is a nude panel in the opening, should it be too low.
Gown color is a personal preference. A specific gown color is not preferred over another.
Rhinestones are allowed on dresses for all age divisions.
