Sitting in the house watching what will soon amount to 24-30″ of snow in the area has me thinking bout the notion that white evening gowns always win Mrs. pageants. For years, many a coach told their clients that “if you want to win, you must wear a white gown”. Suffice it to say, there were plenty of visual statistics to back up that claim.
Four of the last 10 Mrs. United States winners, in addition to Andrea, all competed in white gowns: Edrienne Carpenter (2004), Dr. Chiann Gibson (2005), Stephanie Hunt (2007) & Tammy Johns (2009). Along with Mrs. America 2005, several other Mrs. Americas also competed in white evening gowns and won the national title – Heidi Dinan (2003), Julie Love-Templeton (2004) & Kelly McBee (2007)
