MISS AFRICA USA PARADE OF NATIONS: Showcasing the Colors of Africa

The Parade of Nations has been very much a part of the Miss Africa USA Pageant since 2006. Each year the designers take it to the next level and the next level.  This year, a very special African fashion designer who loved the concept offered to give it a go and of course it was another mind blowing experience.  Stella Atal who flew in from Kampala after weeks of threading together beautiful designs with the colors of each participating nation in the pageant took over this show and brought out the best in each finalist on stage.   Pictured above is Queen Fifi Soumah Miss Africa USA 2010 on the Runway wearing Stella Atal’s design for Guinea during Parade of nations segment of the competition.

Pictured above Miss Rwanda delegate Kadija Uwimana takes a stride on the Runway, modeling Stella Atal’s Colors for Rwanda, beautifully put together and well accessorized, hair Afrocentric, shoes off the chain and the best smile, showcasing the beauty of Rwanda, a nation with a trouble past marked with genocide and civil war but now ranking as one of the fastest developing countries in Africa. Up Rwanda!!!!!!!!!!!

Another feature of Stella Atal’s designs on the Runway modeled by Miss Ghana Agnes Ntow. This little dress is beautifully put together, looks very sexy and elegant. What makes it even more appealing is the way it is modeled by Miss Ntow with lots of confidence, beautiful braids, accessories, best heels and of course the smile.

Miss Liberia finalist Tracey Weah pictured above models Stella Atal’s design for Liberia. A simple top with the colors of Liberia matched with plain Leggings, you can’t go wrong with this combination. Miss Tracey keeps it simple with beautiful accessories a contagious smile and great pose for Liberia, the nation which boasts of having the first and only female President in Africa.
