Miss Alabama Chandler Champion is making it clear which SEC team she adores. Champion will be representing the Yellowhammer State in the Miss America pageant on September 15.
There’s a “Show Us Your Shoes” parade along the Atlantic City Boardwalk the night before the pageant, and Champion will be wearing a custom-made “Roll Tide” dress complete with plenty of houndstooth.
Oh, and in case you didn’t know, the Tide were National Champions. It says so, right down Champion’s backside:
She’s all about school spirit, head to toe. Here’s the outfit’s accessories:
The over-the-top outfit appears like something out of a costume masquerade ball, which is why Champion is wearing them for a parade and not while being judged for the pageant.
Still, it’s lucky for Champion there are no graduates from rival universities among the judges. But, she may face one at least one harsh critic. U.S. gymnast McKayla Maroney is among this year’s judges. I hear she’s hard to impress.
