VICKSBURG — About 20 minutes and a few outfits into a one-woman fashion show, Miss Mississippi Taryn Foshee realized those in the back of the room couldn't see the red leather and leopard print high heels she was wearing.
So, she gracefully balanced on one foot, popped off a shoe and held it up in one hand so everyone could get a closer look.
The ladies who seconds earlier whispered, "I love those shoes," joined others in applauding Foshee's grace and style.
The Clinton resident was joined Sunday afternoon by an estimated 300 onlookers who gathered at the Vicksburg Convention Center for her trunk show, an annual event during which Miss Mississippi shows what she'll wear during the Miss America pageant. The show is a prelude to this year's pageant Jan. 29.
