I had the pleasure of interviewing the gorgeous Miss USA 2012 Nana Meriwether. She was such a delight to chat with! We talked about health and fitness, how she got started in pageantry and so much more. She was born in South Africa but raised in Potomac, Maryland. She also owns The Epicure Group a Social Media Management and Marketing Firm that represents the Lifestyle Industry of Restaurants, Hospitality Groups and Fashion Brands.Check out our interview below! xoxo
TWT: How did you prepare for entering the Miss USA 2012 pageant? I had to do a lot of mental preparation for the pageant because you are competing with 50 beautiful women from all over the country. Ofcourse I had to also workout as well as make good wardrobe choices.
TWT: If you had the chance to walk in any runway fashion show, which designer would it be for and why? I love BCBG & Herve Leger. I like BCBG resort collections they are very chic and I love Herve Leger because his dresses are form fitting and shows off your shape.
TWT: Give us some of your top beauty regimens, fashion tips and behind-the-scenes pageant secrets? I’m a huge juicer. I love to juice leafy vegetables & fruit and I drink daily. I even got my dad juicing! It gives you energy and it’s good for your skin. As far as fashion tips, keep three key stand out pieces in you wardrobe. One item needs to be a statement piece that pops with color. Pants, shoes, tops, accessories etc. Pageant secrets, give it your all and have lots of confidence!
TWT: What was the first thing you did after winning the title of Miss USA 2012? The first thing I did when I found out that I had won Miss USA 2012 was call my mom! She has been there throughout my journey.
TWT: What do you always carry with you on a daily basis in your purse? I always have my Ipad and Iphone charger wherever I go lol.
