63rd Miss Universe pageant: Top 15 head shots

PicMonkey Collage

First impressions last, they say. And for pageant girls, the best way to make a good first impression is through the head shot.

Photographer Gale Evans gives us two pointers on what a perfect headshot must be:

  • It has to provide a clear and accurate representation of what you really look like …  Your head shot should capture your best and most unique features while remaining true to your actual image.
  • It has to have enough impact to make someone want to take a second look. For that to happen, the head shot needs to create a relationship between you and the viewer. As Allentown, Pennsylvania photographer Joe Edelman aptly puts it, “a great headshot will intrigue the viewer and make them want to meet you. It will hint at certain aspects of your personality and leave the viewer curious and wanting more.”

As The Pageant Planet puts it: “your pageant head shot should be picture that looks like you, shows your personality and has good quality because if it comes down to you and another girl, that picture could make you or break you.”
