Express and the Fashion Show Mall host fashion show for hopefuls.

The 2012 Miss America Pageant is just one week away. The contestants have been a part of a whirlwind through Las Vegas. On Saturday night all 53 women walked the runway in a pre-pageant fashion show. Stylists personally fit each contestant with evening dresses and accessories from Express, the official clothing sponsor of the Miss America pageant.
This fashion show was one of the fun events before the preliminary contests begin on Monday, January 9th. The competitions will include interview, talent, swimsuit, evening wear and onstage question. The winner of Miss America will have Express as her official clothing sponsor throughout her reign. Miss America winners also receive a package of goodies including a $50,000 scholarship.
You can vote for your favorite at MissAmerica.org or on Facebook. Miss America will air live, Saturday, January 14th, hosted by Chris Harrison and Brooke Burke-Charvet, 9:00 EST on ABC.
