Elizabeth Anthony Collection

When I stepped through the doors of Elizabeth Anthony Collection for the first time a little over one year ago, I knew I had stepped into a very special place. I was surrounded by beautiful designer and couture clothing that took my breath away. It was not the clothing that made this a special place for me though, it was the people. Julie and her team are simply amazing! I started to learn ways to enhance my body type with different styles and colors that were best for me. Julie has a way of making every young lady feel like they are her only client and that is because she has each girls very best interest and budget in mind. This past weekend I slipped into my designer gown by Gionni Straccia and visualized a crown on my head as I walked the runway feeling like a true princess. Thank you Julie and the wonderful ladies at Elizabeth Anthony Collection for helping make this dream come true.

I wanted to take a moment and thank Julie at Elizabeth Anthony/Esther Wolf on taking the time and making the effort to help make my dreams come true.  Julie’s knowledge of pageantry mixed with her sense of style guided me toward my Teen USA wardrobe. My designer gown by Gionni Straccia, made me feel flawless from the moment I tried it on.  Each and every outfit was perfect!  Even the extra time spent making sure I was completely confident the moment I stepped off the plane, registered, attended the daily activities and cocktail party, and especially as I approached each category of competition.  Words are not enough, but from my heart I sincerely thank Julie and her staff at Elizabeth Anthony/Esther Wolf for giving me the opportunity to live my dream and be at my best as I brought home the title of Miss Teen USA 2011!

I simply can't thank Julie enough for her help in my preparations for the pageant. When I came to Elizabeth Anthony she made me feel so welcome and at home and made it clear she would help me look and feel my very best. I felt so at ease as she gave her expert opinions about each garment we selected. I felt so encouraged as she shared her experiences as a young contestant and she was very supportive. We found the perfect dresses for both the on-stage question and talent portions of the competition, and she helped guide the perfect alterations as well. I left feeling like Miss America and knowing my wardrobe would show that on stage. Thank you to Julie and everyone at Elizabeth Anthony!

Julie played a huge part in my pageant career. When I first walked through the doors of Elizabeth Anthony, Julie was nothing but kind and eager to help me fulfill my dreams as a pageant titleholder. Not only is she an excellent wardrobe stylist but she is generous.

If it were not for Julie, I would not be where I am today. She always provided me with spectacular wardrobe, great coaching and most of all a loyal friendship. She was there for me through my disappointments and celebrations.

Julie watched, April 11, 2008, as I captured the crown of Miss USA 2008. She helped my dreams come true, she can help your dream come true too...

Meeting with Julie Roberts to find the perfect gown for the Mrs. Arizona, Mrs. America, and Mrs. World was a wonderful experience and one I would highly recommend. I was introduced to Julie by my Executive Director, Diane Ritter.  You have to meet Julie to understand how great she is on a personal and professional level. She simple knows what she does and does it first rate. After winning the title of Mrs. Arizona America, I visited Julie again with my mother Lorraine and then won the title of Mrs. America 2006. A few months later, I headed back to Houston to meet with Julie with Diane Ritter, to find the perfect gown for Mrs. World, and was awarded that title as well!  Meeting Julie was a blessing and I’m honored to know her. Thank you Julie for creating looks for my interview and evening wear that were charming and sophisticated, but above all looks of timeless elegance.
