  1. I have to admit the gowns in the 2000s are so much better than the ones in the 1980s, with all the sequins, collars and shoulder pads!

  2. 2ed RU Miss Alabama
    1ed RU Miss Hawaii

    MISS USA 2011 Miss California

  3. florida
    hawaii
    new york
    texas

  4. Tennessee was also nice too.

  5. Not a fashion person but won’t mind these gowns:
    Arizona, Arkansas, California, Connecticut, D.C, Florida, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Minnesota, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Rhode Island,South Dakota, Virginia,

  6. My favourites in EG: Arkansas, California, Connecticut, Florida, Geogria, Hawaii, Indiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, Nevada, Rhode Island, Utah, Virginia, Wyoming

  7. Michigan is beautiful and is a contender but she exudes the charisma of an ice queen. I wish she would smile more as it just lights up her pretty face. Tennessee is consistent and should do very well. Gorgeous in both presentations. Florida and Texas are nice; however, they belong in the same category as Nevada: they are “pretty but look old” — nothing is wrong with that but unfortunately, Miss Universe is looking for someone that looks younger. South Carolina’s styling is matronly and she may not make the semis as her prelim performance was pretty weak. New Jersey faded and her evening gown is tacky. Alaska and Alabama were pleasant surprises. Arizona’s face seems so big. California’s styling (especially the limp hair and bad gown) was yuck. She could’ve done better. Plus, that trip in the EG prelim did not help her. Based on the prelims (not taking the interviews into consideration), it’s Tennessee on top… followed by Michigan… with Hawaii in third.

  8. Based on the pictures of Evening Gown alone, Top 15 in alphabetical order:

    -Alabama
    -Arizona
    -California
    -District of Colombia
    -Florida
    -Hawaii
    -Illinois
    -Maine
    -Michigan
    -Mississippi
    -Rhode Island
    -South Carolina
    -Tennessee
    -Utah
    -Virginia

  9. Miss Florida Nailed it !!!!! wow !! this is the clear winner for Miss Usa 2011 !! Go FL !!

  10. California: I can’t stand green gowns.

    Colorado: Looks too much like a Princess Leia dress.

    Maine: Too busy.

    Kansas: The only thing I can’t stand more than a green gown is a brown one. Ugh.

    Montana: The only thing I can’t stand more than a weird colored gown is one with long sleeves. This is a Miss USA pageant, not your daughters wedding.

    New Mexico: One sleeve? Oxana Federova can’t even pull that one off.

    Oklahoma: Great design, bad color combination. Should have used black for both the beads and dress.

    South Carolina: Beautiful evening gown if you bought it in 1991.

    … Florida is beautiful though… she should go all the way.

    i love ms carolina, the face really rocks!
    i also love ms florida, her body is sumptous!
    and then here comes ms. michigan which catwalk really seizes the thrills of the audience!

    these three are the most amazing ladies and deserving to wear the miss usa crown!

  12. I see something special about Miss Tennessee. Consistent in both swimsuit and gown competitions.

  13. I was at the prelem show last night, and who “REALLY outshinned all together was “New Mexico”, Virginia, then Michigan. Tenn, Nevada and Hawaii. I was dissappointed with Calif. she acted and reminded me of a total package for Miss Teen Usa, and her bod OMG talk about anorexia, SERIOUSLY

  14. I now love Alabama, California, District of Columbia, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, North Carolina, South Carolina (despite the rumors of her being difficult), and Utah. And just to make a Top 15, I’d throw in Connecticut, Tennessee and Texas.

    My new Top 5: Alabama, California, District of Columbia, Michigan, North Carolina.

    4th RU District of Columbia
    3rd RU North Carolina
    2nd RU California
    1st RU Alabama

    Miss USA 2011 Michigan

  15. Alabama is the best!

  16. pageant fan says:

    Why do such stunning beauties willfully damage their chances with foolish, incredibly foolish choices of evening gowns that are either unflattering (Connecticut), boring (DC) or with shock pink/red colors that distract from their beauty rather than enhance it.

    Simplicity is key!

    Illinois, Alaska, Florida, Indiana, NY, Rhode Island, Virginia were the best.

    California Connecticut and DC (such beauties!) may have hurt their chances with their silly gowns.

    • Not neccessarily, photos sometimes don’t do a contestant justice. Perhaps some of these contestants actually looked good in motion, thus they can carry and worked an otherwise unflattering gown.

      Then again, pageant gowns are expensive and I wouldn’t doubt many contestants have to make do with what they can afford.

  17. The designer is the same miss venezuela’s designer? Dresses are very simillar to miss venezuela contestants.,,

  18. I think Florida won the evening gown competition, with Texas second. But I don’t think either one of these women are very pretty and I hope they don’t win USA as they won’t go very far in Universe. I think the best choices would be California or Michigan, and then South Carolina, New York, and Utah rounding out the Top 5.

  19. i love district of colombia and south carolina but i think that next miss usa will be florida or one of blondes: tennessee, maryland, georgia.

  20. MICHIGAN rocked it! A total Victoria Secret Model…fluid in her movements, cool as ice with her personality. That was so refreshing to see among the pack of pageant patties.

    California sunk faster than the Titanic.

  21. in my opinion the bets candidate for to win miss tennessee

    • I agree Tennessee and those “dimples” light up a room!

  22. I think Miss Florida looked great. She’s the next winner.

  23. Miss California did excellent last night even many people say her gown was horrible.
    Miss Nevada and New York were big pleasant surprises.
    Hawaii is so cute, but lacks charm and personality.
    What can I say about Miss Florida… AMAZING ROCKING BODY!

  24. California, DC, Michigan, Nevada, S. Carolina, Tennessee, Utah, Virginia, Washington ared the standouts here.

  25. i dont think so alyssa campanella is wonderful and when she win she become a rare miss usa because never one miss usa have the red hair and her eyes ALYSSA IS THE BEST

  26. Arizona, Tenesee and Texas the Best gowns. California is really beautiful but the gown doesn’t help at all.

  27. RodrigoCHILE says:

    Miss Florida, Miss Michigan, Miss Missouri and Miss New Jersey had a great performance in both events last night.
    Florida`s catwalk was flawless and fierce…
    Even though I adore Miss California her evening gown it`s not among my favorites.

  28. J'susMaria'Sep says:

    i love Miss Louisiana, but i don’t like her gown :-( She’s one of my bet

    • Two words: “TOO OLD”.

  29. Florida owned prelims. If she wins USA watch out. She’s got the goods to give USA another Universe title. She’s got one of the best catwalks I’ve seen at USA in a long time and she’s got a body of beauty.

  30. JV Photography says:

    I think that most of them really have a wonderful evening gown.. however, there are still some candidates who still dont know how to carry their dress… I must say that this batch look amazing but no one stands out because they are usual…. I dont see a lady whom i consider extra-ordinary…

    PEace… Just my opinion.
