TALENT COSTUME -Almost anything goes! Make sure it is flattering and as entertaining as you are. More ideas here.
GOWN - There are very few rules when it comes to the evening gown. This is your moment; your real chance to show off your grace, beauty, and personal style. More ideas here.
The most important things to remember about your Miss Rogue Valley wardrobe are:(1) don't spend too much money, you are trying to raise scholarship money to further your academic and career goals (2) make sure the styles you choose are flattering to you, and (3) be YOURSELF. Our goal is to help you learn how to combine your own unique style with timeless advice that will help you put your best foot forward in a variety of settings.
For our weekly meetings please adhere to the following guidelines: Always wear heels (preferably your competition heels, not boots), and always come photo ready (hair and make-up done, and in clothes that will represent our program well).
You will need the following wardrobe elements to compete: Please be advised that we do have a Miss Rogue Valley Closet that you may borrow from. In order to borrow from the closet you will need to put down a refundable $100 security deposit. The deposit helps to ensure that all items are returned in excellent condition. Any alterations must be approved by the directors. We will talk about wardrobe and styling throughout the program, but here are some ideas to get you started:
INTERVIEW -Classic and Professional. Make sure your interview outfit choice is appropriate for your age (not too stuffy), that it fits well, and that you will look your best entering/exiting the room and standing at the podium. More ideas here.

ACTIVE WEAR -You will be asked to wear solid black bottoms (shorts, capris, or pants), athletic shoes, and to purchase a top selected by the MRV production team. The cost of the athletic top is included in your application fee.
PRODUCTION - "Black & Bling" - Each year we do a black cocktail dress for our opening number, paired with as much costume bling as you can pile on! This is a costume element of the show, so have fun! Make sure you can dance in whatever dress you choose. This LBD should be a great addition to your permanent wardrobe... just add BLING!
