Miss America Crowned!

Nina Davuluri became the first contestant of Indian heritage and the second consecutive contestant from New York to win the Miss America pageant last night.  She beat out 52 other contestants and kept the Miss America sash in New York for the second straight year.  Even though quite a bit of attention was given to Miss Kansas, Theresa Vail, who is believed to be the first Miss America contestant to openly display tattoos. She has the Serenity Prayer on her rib cage and a military insignia on the back of a shoulder.  During the “show us your shoes” portion of the competition, while everyone was wearing fancy heels, she rocked camouflage gear and army boots.  She revealed on her twitter “Win or not tonight, I have accomplished what I set out to do. I have empowered women. I have opened eyes.”
