Emma Broyles looked like royalty accepting her Miss America crown.

Broyles, who represented Alaska in the pageant, was crowned the winner of Miss America last night in Uncasville, Conn. After the event was canceled in 2020 due to the pandemic, this year marked the 100th anniversary of the competition. Upon claiming her victory, Broyles is the recipient of a six-figure salary, plus a record $100,000 in scholarship funds.

Broyles wore a black floor-length gown during the pageant. Her ballgown-shaped dress featured a white bodice with black crystal detailing as well as a one-shoulder design. She added oversized crystal drop earrings to her look as well as a thick crystal bracelet.

Broyles also wore a crisp white suit on the program paired with cobalt blue pointed-toe pumps before accepting the title. Pointed-toe pumps have emerged as a top shoe trend this year, especially as live events have returned and more people are dressing up. The style often streamlines any ensemble from its sleek silhouettes and daring heels. Stylish celebs such as Sarah Jessica Parker, Saweetie and Paris Hilton have also worn pairs from Manolo Blahnik, Christian Louboutin and Aquazzura.
