The slick set added a shimmering edge to Wilson’s attire for the occasion: an embellished, iridescent sleeveless Alin Le’ Kal minidress, complemented with crystal-coated drop earrings.
During the event’s swimsuit segment, Wilson stepped out in a pair of slingback sandals with warm brown uppers, complete with crossed upper straps and stiletto heels. The slick pair smoothly complemented her glossy, light pink bikini, which featured a bandeau-style top and two rosette accents. Crystal-trimmed hoop earrings finished the look with a subtle sparkle.
During the event’s final segment, where Wilson took third place, she sparkled in a corseted Alin Le’ Kal dress with a strapless bodice and flowing skirt. The faintly sheer style was covered in silver, gold and black beadwork and crystals for an allover statement, which Wilson complemented with crystal-covered drop earrings and a matching thin bracelet.
