Vanessa Williams - 1983
The first African-American Miss America, she forfeited her title because of a nude photo scandal. "It wasn't like my vocal cords were cut," she has said. "It was a setback, not a defeat."
At the Van Cleef & Arpels flagship store in New York City, Blake Lively celebrated the redesign in a black bias Marchesa slip dress with pastel floral embroidery, Chantilly lace cut-outs and a tulle flounce skirt. Van Cleef & Arpels jewels and black Gucci heels completed her look.
