MONTREAL, Jan. 23, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - On Saturday, January 14th at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, as Laura Kaeppeler,
the 23-year-old Wisconsin brunette was crowned Miss America 2012,
Canadian design house Joseph Ribkoff was already busy backstage
planning her wardrobe for her up-coming events starting this week.
"We're delighted to be dressing such a dynamic young woman," says owner
Joseph Ribkoff. "Laura has her own style and projects confidence, while
radiating a fresh, youthful yet classic style. We look forward to
helping her look her best throughout the year."
"My style is 'less is more' business casual," says Kaeppeler, the young
stylish music major who intends on pursuing a law degree after her
year. "As Miss America, I'll be travelling more than 20,000 miles every
month, so I'm especially excited to be able to select my outfits from
Joseph Ribkoff, a collection of more than 300 pieces, including dresses
and coordinated separates that are easy-to-wear and easy-to-care for;
needing little besides a few great accessories from suitcase to stage!"
Simply put, Kaeppeler's time on the road will be both easy and flawless
with a suitcase full of Ribkoff pieces.
