Dear Pageant Girl,

With only 3 weeks until the Miss Universe girls start arriving in Vegas for fittings and registration, Team Kooey are getting down to business preparing swimsuits for the 90 girls competing this year! While we can’t reveal what we have in store just yet we have decided to take a look back at the Kooey suits at this years Miss Universe Australia and Miss USA finals.

This year Kooey offered 5 suits in similar styles and different colours that could be mixed and matched. It was encouraged for the girls to pick their own suits which allowed them to choose what they wanted out of their swimwear and show off their personality a little more.

We loved having the chance this year to provide options to the girls! All of the suits are part of the ‘Kooey by Scherri-Lee’ line, designed by one of our favourite ladies of all time Miss Universe Australia 2011 Scherri-Lee Biggs.

The options were the ‘Miss You‘ top in solid Aqua, Purple or Peach as well as in our Passionflower Aqua and Passionflower Ink print and the top could be paired with two different pant options, ‘Letty‘ in Aqua and Purple and ‘Abster‘ in the two prints and peach.

The mix and match trend is HUGE in swimwear this season and we loved seeing this look translate to the stage.

Coincidentally both the winners, Miss Universe Australia Renae Ayris and Miss USA Olivia Culpo, opted for the same purple suit.

If you want to get the look, head to our website where all styles are available now!

Until next time… xo Team Kooey for Dear Pageant Girl
