Congratulations to my lil’ sista – Louisiana’s own @alilandry – celebrating her 20th anniversary being crowned #MissUSA1996 This year, she joins the distinguished panel of judges for the 65th annual event tomorrow night in Las Vegas airing live on #FOX at 7:00 PM / 6:00 PM CT. We met a few months into her reign and formed an immediate bond that has resulted in an amazing 20 year friendship. Lord the stories we share and the good times we’ve had! I love you so much! ???❤️?? A little pageant history: Ali is truly legendary indeed. She was the first contestant in the Miss Universe system to compete at all three levels: Miss Teen USA, Miss USA and Miss Universe – finishing in the Top Ten at each event and ultimately winning the title of Miss USA 1996. She was the first Miss Teen USA delegate to actually win the Miss USA crown. Ali was also the fifth and last Miss USA to win the Miss Photogenic Award. You go girl!! And remember WE HAVE ARRIVED ????#February2nd1996 #45thAnnualMissUSAPageant #SouthPadreIslandTexas ??? Louisiana Representin!!! ??
