We’re so happy for Karlie Hay! The gorgeous Miss Teen Texas won the title of Miss Teen USA on July 30, and we couldn’t be happier for her. We have all the pics you need to see of the lovely young woman who just took home the crown, right here!
Karlie Hay, 18, must be on cloud 9 right now! The stunning Miss Teen Texas took home the huge title of Miss Teen USA in Las Vegas on July 30, and we’re just so thrilled for her. She’s smart, kind, and beautiful – everything the global representative for America should be! Click through our gallery to see tons of pics of the 2016 winner.
Karlie stunned during the big show, especially during the evening gown competition. She was rocking a flowing yellow satin dress with soft, pretty ruffled tiers and tulle wrapped around her shoulders. We couldn’t help but think of Belle from Beauty and the Beast when we saw her walk the stage!
She may have looked like a princess on the Miss Teen USA stage, but off-stage she’s just a super cool down-to-Earth teenager! Looking through her Instagram, you’ll see photos of the beauty fishing (and showing off her catch!), having slumber parties with her friends while rocking the coolest donut-themed footie pajamas we’ve ever seen, and hanging out by the pool in a big swan floatie a la Taylor Swift. Not only do we admire this chick, we want to be best friends with her!
What makes Miss Texas even cooler is her commitment to helping kids. Her Miss Teen USA bio says that she dealt first-hand with having an alcoholic family member growing up, and now she’s devoted her life to helping young kids in the same situation. What an awesome girl!
