The Iconic Statement by Sydni Dion Bennett Miss Illinois USA 2021: This gown will forever hold a special place in my heart. Nobody does it better than ASHLEYlauren. This gown made me feel like I’ve never felt before.
Many people tried to dissect my gown because they had their own feelings about it. But a little back story behind the design. My brand is different shades of nude and ASHLEYlauren designed my gown to represent ME. My gown was MY shade of nude and designed to accentuate MY favorite features of MY body. So ultimately, the gown was designed for ME
