Roll Tide, indeed. This is apparently real, and let’s be honest, it’s spectacular. You know, in a garish, college football-crazy sort of way.
On Sept. 15, Chandler Champion, a University of Alabama student and the reigning Miss Alabama 2013, will compete at the Miss America Pageant.
Apparently, she will wear this dress during the “Show Me Your Shoe” parade at the pageant. Featuring the legendary houndstooth pattern in a nod to the trademark hat worn by legendary Crimson Tide head coach Bear Bryant, the dress also features “ROLL TIDE” on the front and the Alabama National Championship emblem on the back.
It’s really something, man.
Wow. Looking good, Chandler Champion. Great name, by the way. Could she be a bigger Crimson Tide fan? (/”Friends” reference)
Since I can scarcely wrap my head around the concept of the dress, here’s a more detailed description, via AL.com:
Best of luck to Miss Champion in her quest to be named Miss America. And as far as being Miss Alabama is concerned, the young lady is in some heady company. You may have heard of the woman who was Miss Alabama in 2012. Katherine Webb. Yep, she did alright for herself.
