Cynthia Bailey crowns a new Queen: Miss Renaissance Pageant 2013
Empowerment. Confidence. Intelligence. These are just a few words used to brand the
created by Cynthia Bailey. The Real Housewives of Atlanta star proudly presented the second annual event last night to a standing room crowd. The love and support for the 70 contestants was overwhelming, which was kind of the point - evidence and validation of a job well done. And from the heart.
There were five categories of contestants separated by ages ranging 5 -18 years old.
Last year's Queens. That's [the first] Miss Renaissance in the red. Selena Hairston. They were all very gracious, polite and personable. Qualities becoming of young ladies in their position. I know Cynthia is very proud.
This year, for the first time, a "Little" Miss Renaissance [ages 5-6] was crowned. The winner, who was so adorable you could just gobble her up, was Jai Lee
A new Queen is crowned...
... standing the tallest, proudest, most sincere and so lovely, Miss Renaissance 2013, Taylor A. Williams. Congratulations.
Their personalities were as rich as the color of their dresses. ALL the ladies have plenty to contribute to the world. Cynthia Bailey is doing her part by paying it forward and providing these girls and young ladies with a head start.
It was a pleasure and an honor to judge Miss Renaissance. It was a difficult task but if the saying "everyone's a winner" ever meant anything, this was it! Fellow blogger, judge and superstar
and I had a blast!
