miss_america.jpgWest Vancouver was paid a royal visit of sorts last week as Miss America, Teresa Scanlan, visited Ambleside’s Aldila Boutique. In town to help present Canadian clothing designer Joseph Ribkoff, the 18 year-old Nebraska native was the epitome of style and smarts. With a smile that sparkled even brighter than her crown, this confident young woman made it clear that the era of Barbie doll blondes and beauty pageant pigeonholing is long over. Later this year, when her reign is over, she plans on returning to school to pursue law. Also last week, the North Vancouver Chamber of Commerce held its annual “Hats Off to Excellence” Business Awards at North Vancouver’s Pinnacle Pier hotel. With a “Mad Men” theme, and contributions by the Capilano University film students, the evening was both elegant and entertaining. Congrats to all nominees!
