The Met Gala has once again come and gone and we are sharing some of our favorite looks!
This years Gala was in honor and themed from fashion icon, Karl Lagerfeld and his iconic looks and the celebrities arrived in style! We could definitely see the influence of Lagerfelds time with Chanel in looks from Gala Co-Chari Dua Lips in Chanel and Keke Palmer in Sergio Hudson. A few cape looks made an appearance on the carpet as well to honor Lagerfeld's long-time friend and late Vogue editor André Leon Talley. These looks were most notably worn by Kylie Jenner, Halle Bailey and Kerry Washington. Every year, we always have a few outlandish looks (usually from Jared Leto), but one that we are here for is Doja Cats purrific look by Oscar De La Renta!
Below are some of our favorite looks from the Met Gala 2023
The classic Chanel tweed looks beautiful on Met Gala Co-Chair, Dua Lipa. We are
loving the pointed bodice into the full ballgown
Emily Ratajkowski never misses! She looks stunning in this Tory Burch gown
featuring geometric shapes and an adorable hair bow.
Did someone say queen?! Sydney Sweeney made jaws drop in this Miu Miu
look! We're thinking that bows are going to be a huge hit for this upcoming year!
Margot Robbie traded in Barbie pink for this beautiful corseted Chanel look!
Halle Bailey is making us want to be a part of her world in this stunning Gucci gown!
As Doja Cat would say...."meow!" Although different, we think this
Oscar De La Renta gown is purrific!
Kerry Washington turned heads in this Michael Kors Collection lace piece!
Will mermaid designs be making a comeback for this coming season?!
Lea Michele is the "Greatest Star" in this Michael Kors Collection piece!
Keke Palmer nailed this tweed gown by Sergio Hudson! If you're an AR Girl,
you know we can't say no to a good tweed look!
Kendall Jenner reached for the stars in this Marc Jacobs look!
Kim Kardashian is always a slay at the Met Gala and this year is no different!
Anne Hathaway rocked the Met Gala red carpet - if only we could have had
a "Devil Wears Prada" moment!
Mindy Kaling brought the house down in this Simkhai Collection piece!
We are suckers for a "cat eye" bodice!

MISS TEEN USA IS... Ashley Rene's Girl, Faron Medhi of Nebraska! Ashley Rene's is proud to have dressed Faron Medhi for the Miss Teen USA stage in Reno-Tahoe, Nevada for the Miss Teen USA 2022 Pageant. Faron came to Ashley Rene's to shop for her National winning gown and tried on many different colors and styles, but wanted to stay true to herself. Something about a black gown spoke to her and how she wanted to portray herself on the big stage. She decided that she wanted to customize a Jovani Couture gown with a beautiful velvet bodice encrusted in golden tones of Swarovski artwork - the colors complimented her so beautifully as she graced the Miss Teen USA stage. Faron winning in a black gown as a Teen contestant is the perfect example of going with your gut and how you want to be seen no matter what the norm is!
We are so proud of Faron as she chose to be authentically herself!
We adored Faron's crowning moment and watching all of her Miss Teen USA Class of 2022 sisters literally jumping for joy! It is always a pleasure to see the sisterhood be filled with happiness for their peers. Please wish her congratulations
as she takes her Miss Teen USA year by storm!

As an evening gown sponsor for multiple Miss USA state organizations, each year we look forward to getting to dress the state titleholders for one of the biggest moments of their life: Competing for the title of Miss USA! The Ashley Rene's team works with designer, Sherri Hill, and the titleholders to create their dream gown... or in Miss Utah USA's case, a dream pantsuit!
Miss Indiana USA, Alexis Lete, chose a gorgeous dark red fully beaded gown with a halter style neckline and fringe detailing througout the skirt! Alexis made us and the state of Indiana so proud and finished placing 3rd Runner-Up to Miss USA wearing Ashley Rene's! Alexis' evening gown was voted one of the Top 17 gowns at Miss USA by Insider.com!
Miss Nevada USA, Victoria Olona, chose a modern princess-style ballgown with a metallic skirt and fully beaded bodice and off the shoulder straps! You'd never believe us when we say the gown had to have weighed more than 15 pounds because Victoria just floated on stage! Victoria's gown was voted one of the Top 17 evening gowns at Miss USA by Insider.com!
From the moment she was crowned Miss Utah USA, Rachel Slawson, knew she wanted to make a statement and be different with her wardrobe choices. We discussed many options and she decided she felt most confident being the first ever contestant to wear a pantsuit on the Miss USA stage during the evening gown competion! Rachel wore a gold liquid bead two-piece pantsuit and it could not have shined more! We loved her bravery and how much she embraced being different than the other contestants. Her pantsuit was voted one of the Top 17 looks at Miss USA by Insider.com!
The coronavirus pandemic has postponed a lot of things, including prom. But that hasn’t stopped Ashley Rene’s Prom and Pageant from doing everything they can to help high schoolers and the community.
In the midst of a national crisis and wanting to continue to give back to our community, we rallied with stores across the nation to discuss how we can make a difference. Together, we were able to find a solution to help the national mask shortage.
We recently learned that our garment bags are made of the same protective fabric that can be used to make masks for healthcare workers and the immunocompromised. Community members, other local businesses, including the Pink Pineapple Boutique, & our amazing Ashley Rene’s clients have teamed up with us and we are so excited to say we’ve donated enough fabric to make nearly 7,000 masks! We've been able to not only help those within our community, but our clients across the entire country stepped up and have began making masks and filters out of our garment bags for those in their community, too!
Ashley Rene’s is so proud that we could make a small gesture in hopes to create a big impact on those who are on the front line of this crisis our country and community is facing.
Thank you to everyone who has been working diligently to make masks for those who need them most!
Check out the local coverage from WNDU regarding Ashley Rene's giving back here.

This look was unique and a complete standout on stage! Tianna placed in the Top 5 at Miss USA and as her evening gown sponsor, we are SO proud!
Placing #5 in the Top 10 for The Best Miss Evening Gowns of 2019 is Miss Utah USA, Amanda Giroux! It's no surpise Amanda placed in the Top 10 with this one-of-a-kind Sherri Hill Couture dress!

Camille chose a stunning, rich navy blue velvet gown. It was a mermaid fit & flare style with a one-shoulder bodice. The top of the shoulder and back straps had beautiful Swarovski crystal embellishments to which we had custom Stefanie Somers earrings made to match to complete her winning look!
We are so extremely honored to have dressed Camille and cannot wait to see her succeed throughout her year as Miss America 2020! Congratulations, beautiful!
We are thrilled to call you an Ashley Rene's Girl!

Ashley Rene’s to Relocate and Expand to New Storefronts in Granger
Ashley Rene’s is relocating to two locations in Heritage Square in Granger starting January 12, 2019:
Ashley Rene’s Prom and Pageant and Ashley Rene’s Couture!
Owner Ashley Rene Swathwood says she is excited to offer the Michiana area a bigger and better experience with Ashley Rene’s.
“This move to an outdoor, high-end shopping area has been my ultimate dream,” Swathwood said.
“With two storefronts, we’ll be able to offer twice as many dressing rooms, a wider selection of designers and price points along with a designated space for custom and couture lines.”
Swathwood said that with the move, Ashley Rene’s will be hiring twice as many part-time and full-time employees and will be providing internships for young people in the area who are interested in a career in fashion, business, or entrepreneurship.
Customers can look forward to the distinct storefronts. Ashley Rene’s Prom and Pageant will still feature cocktail dresses and gowns for special occasions, pageants, and prom. Ashley Rene’s Couture will offer customers designer, couture gowns for everything from pageants to galas to VIP events – the first storefront of its kind in the area.
Ashley Rene's has worked hard to bring a wider array of price points and designers so that everyone, no matter their budget, can have the Ashley Rene’s experience.
“When you walk out our doors, you’ll have peace of mind that you’ve purchased a high-quality, designer gown all while receiving our top-notch customer service,” said Swathwood.
With more than fifteen years of experience, Swathwood and her staff have consistently ranked as the No. 1 prom and pageant boutique in the United States. Ashley Rene’s is a leader in the pageant industry whose gowns have graced the stages of Miss America, Miss USA, red carpets, and more. Additionally, Ashley Rene’s has dressed thousands of high school girls for prom, homecoming, and winter formals across the country.
