Cinderella stresses "real clothes on real people". In other words, your party dress, should be something that a person your age would ACTUALLY WEAR to a formal event.... NOT a dress that could only be worn to a pageant (the same thing applies to Interview and Casualwear garments). Garments chosen should be in good taste and appropriate for the participant’s age. Cinderella Pageants were not designed to be a "clothes show" and your pageant wardrobe should be kept simple and appropriate for your age group. The judges will be judging the participants and NOT their wardrobes. Flaunting an OVERLY EXPENSIVE WARDROBE is often detrimental to the participant's image as a wholesome, unaffected and “natural” girl.
