Mary is Crowned Miss America

Mary won both the swimsuit and talent competition! She glides down the runway taking in the wild applause, spirted comments from the audience, and a glare of flash photography from the media. This is her night!. Mary's talent demonstration was fine sewing and fashion design. Mary even designed her own gown which included an unusual de'collete' neckline crisscrossed to form straps and a "V" back. Notice her long gloves, only a lady of fashion would show them off. Mary also wears rhinestone at her waist. Click here to watch Bert Parks sing to Mary.
