We Are So Proud of Our Bella’s Girls

At Bella’s we lovingly refer to our clients as our “girls”.  You will see us post on social media about “Bella’s girls”.  Last week at the Miss Alabama Pageant, Bella’s girls were exceptionally beautiful.  We were fortunate enough to have dressed many of these young ladies including 4 of the top 5 finalists.

We are so proud and excited to say the new Miss Alabama, Hayley Barber, is a Bella’s girl. Hayley’s red gown is by Tarik Ediz. The plunging neckline and sheer floral bottom added drama to this sophisticated modern gown.

Jessica Procter, Miss Tuscaloosa, was named 4th runner-up. Jessica’s beautiful satin strapless ball gown by Jovani featured a sweetheart neckline with a velvet bodice. This lovely gown in the regal color of purple was an excellent choice for her!

Cassidy Jacks, Miss Trussville, was named 2nd runner-up.  Cassidy was stunning in a blue gown by Mac Duggal with a criss-cross halter neckline with a layered ruffled skirt.  Mac Duggal gowns are known for helping a girl make a grand entrance!

Callie Walker, Miss Hoover, had the honor of being 1st runner-up.  Callie was flawless in her navy jersey Jovani gown with sheer sides and a plunging back. This gown was simple yet elegant as Callie walked the Miss Alabama stage confidently.

Our new Miss Alabama is from Pelham, Alabama and attends UAB. Hayley was also awarded the CMN (Children’s Miracle Network) Miracle Maker Award, the Miss Alabama Community Service award, and was the swimsuit preliminary award winner on Thursday night.  Hayley will compete for Miss America in September at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Hayley was wearing a white gown by Blush when she was crowned Miss Alabama.

It is always a pleasure to help our clients find the perfect dress. The goal at Bella’s is for our clients to leave the store knowing they have their dream dress, whether it is a pageant gown, a wedding gown, an interview dress or a cocktail dress. We also offer our expertise in selecting shoes, swimwear, and accessories.

A favorite quote of mine from Coco Chanel is “Dress shabbily and they remember the dress; dress impeccably and they remember the woman.” Visit Bella’s for all your bridal, prom, or pageant needs. We would love to help you be impeccably dressed.
