The Association invite’s you to a talk, presented by Dr. Marian Ann Montgomery, to explore how Miss Americas pack their own bags for Atlantic City.

Celebrating the 100th Anniversary of the Miss America Pageant, the Museum exhibits garments worn on the stage in Atlantic City and by the Miss Americas during their years of service. The swimsuits and evening gowns of the first hundred years at the Miss America Pageant are a microcosm of American fashion of the same time. Beginning with a coronation robe from the 1930s, through clothing worn by the last Miss Texas to win the crown, to the creation of the “Supersuit” swimsuit of the 1980s, this exhibit will feature American fashion through the lens of the women who embodied the ideal American woman.
