Seriously, how adorable are they? I want to own every single outfit in this picture! The winner is the third from the right (the one with the really cute hairdo) Margaret Gorman. A little Wikipedia reading tells me that Margaret really did not want to be known for winning the "beauty pageant" as it was called then and honestly, that totally makes me like her even more. Even so, she was chosen not just for her adorableness but also for " her athletic ability, past accomplishments, and outgoing personality." Doesn't she sound like the fabulous heroine of a young adult novel that I need to write?
Tomboy beauty queen, now that's a perfect combination if I ever saw one.
