My favorites in order:
1. 1920's. I love how they judged.
2. 1930's. Simple.
3. 1980's. Simple, yet poofy.
4. 1950's. IT'S SO FLUFFY!

I love the 1920s. The way they emphasize on natural beauty and I just love the look on the girl, especially the colour of that dress and her hair. And shouldnt the pencil thin eyebrows be in 1920s as well? Because of the silent films and pictures of silent actresses I've seen. Correct me if Im wrong.

As a pageant enthusiast, I really appreciated and enjoyed this video. 80s were my personal favorite. Not so much the makeup but the gown. 80s were all about the theatrical gowns with the big bows and peplum covered in metallic silk fabric. Pageant dresses in the 80s showed a lot of personality.

Did anyone notice that the 1960's girl had on shoes that were waaaay too big for her.
