Prevue Instagram Hits 100k!

Last month Prevue Instagram hit 100k followers and we couldn’t be more thankful to all of you for the love over the years! This milestone is one of many to come and motivates us to let the creativity flow by keeping our content fresh with the hottest new dresses daily. Social media has let us connect with girls across the country and help them be the best dressed at all of their events. Our favorite part of Instagram? Picture perfect photos sliding into our DMs from customers who rocked their gowns at prom, on stage, on the red carpet, or our all time favorite: bombshell brides walking down the aisle. Whether it’s a last minute date night or your one and only Big Day, we are so happy to have helped you find the perfect dress for your occasion. 

Pageant love on Prevue Instagram: Cinderella dreams can come true at Prevue. The sprinkle sequins let you sparkle from all angels to feel like a real life princess. The angelic cape softly flows behind as you make your entrance but the all over sparkle and high slit brings the drama for the jaw dropping first impression. This gown is a Sherri Hill recreation of one of her amazing Sherri Hill Couture gowns that won national titles on stages across the United States. While the original Couture was available in a very small select number of stores, including Prevue, this version in her Spring 2020 line is under $998 allowing more girls to say Yes! to this winning gown. 

All that glitters is GOLD. These gowns may not be available in the color gold but this photo is Instagram gold for Prevue. Sherri Hill did it again with the glitter fabric, lace up back, pockets, and dare to be bare high slit. All of these elements combined into one gown has created what we consider, Prom Perfection. Our followers showed love on this photo with likes over 12k and fire comments supporting this shot. Prevue’s reason to dub this our favorite photo? This is our top selling gown on our very own Team Prevue prom consultants who look gorgeous on camera.

POWER MOVE. The beauty of Instagram is that we have no control over what our followers will love. What we have learned from trial and error: RED is always the right answer. This leaf lace has been the top selling fabric in Sherri Hill’s Spring line over the past few years and adding red to the color wheel just broke Prevue Instagram. Coming in at 148 comments and over 14.5k likes, this is our best post of the year. Red is the color for any occasion: pageant, prom, military ball, holiday, engagement party. From a simple little red dress for homecoming to taking home the Miss USA crown, red will always make you stand out in a crowd. There’s no doubt the Instagram guru’s knew what they were doing when they gave us the dancing lady emoji wearing a red dress. 

The biggest take away for those of you starting a fashion Instagram or a start up business: stay humble. You will be wrong 99% of the time as to what will have the highest likes. Here is what we have learned over the years as we have built our momentum and created a loyal following: post the photo, it does not have to match perfectly because variety speaks to more people, be fluid and recreate photos that worked for you in the past, and most importantly you need to show you are human. 

The Prevue Team thanks every single one of you for every single like and comment. The second it takes for you to show love boosts our motivation to seek out new background, new photo ops, and most importantly NEW HOT DRESSES. 

With so much love.

XOXO, The Prevue Girls

Finding Your Perfect Pageant Dress for the Miss USA Pageant System

Selecting the perfect pageant dress can be a stressful process, but let Prevue make it an exciting and a smooth experience with our dream team of consultants! The Prevue team is known for creating custom pageant gowns and assisting girls in their dream to take home the crown. With over 30 years of experience in evening gowns, Prevue has dressed titleholders in many major state, national, and world pageants.

Prevue will personally guide you to the perfect gown for every level, in any pageant system. Knowing Prevue’s reputation for unique gowns and fashion forward styles, pageant contestants have traveled from all over the country to try on an exclusive collection of custom designs by Sherri Hill and Jovani. To give your look a finished touch, complete your style with gorgeous earrings by Stefanie Somers.

When doing research for your crowning pageant gown, you might want to consider a unique, yet winning look. You want to find a gown that can stun the judges but continues to portray your personality, so you are consistently yourself throughout pageant weekend. Always remember that feeling confident and beautiful in your pageant gown is far more important than any style trend or opinion of another person.

While you can’t outsmart the judges or other contestants, you can use your resources to find the perfect color, fabric, style, and accessories. Use guidelines as to what is trending in the pageant world and study the “top five” gowns in different states in your pageant system. Because of Prevue’s stature in the pageant world, pageant designers are constantly creating beautiful new custom pieces for Prevue, which means you’ll never have to worry about duplicates. The styles are always fashion forward and unique, yet classically elegant – a truly winning combination as shown by our successful titleholders!
