The beauty of California came alive on Saturday, Jan. 4 in Long Beach as Miss California USA® 2014 and Miss California Teen USA® 2014 hopefuls showed what they were made of in the final competition. Primped, polished and poised, two young women earned the prestigious titles to represent the Golden State at the upcoming national pageants: Congratulations to Miss California USA® 2014 Cassandra Kunze and Miss California Teen USA® 2014 Bianca Vierra.
Representing Ardell® Lashes and China Glaze® Nail Lacquer on the judging panel was Regina Rodriguez, a Senior Brand Manager. Rodriquez, a beauty industry veteran, judged the Miss California Teen USA pageant and couldn’t believe how incredible the experience was. She exclaimed, “Going into this experience as a newcomer to the pageant industry, I was not sure what to expect. I now walk away with the utmost respect and admiration for these young women who work so hard to accomplish their dreams.”
