Kristen Bolt, Principal Designer

Ever wonder how a gorgeous gal ends up in an international beauty competition? Kristen Bolt, resident designer at Donna Salyers' Fabulous-Furs and a fashion design graduate of the prestigious DAAP program at University of Cincinnati, learned first-hand recently when she was invited to judge Miss Ohio and Miss Teen Ohio competitions.

While attending college/design school, Kristen was an NFL cheerleader for the Cincinnati Bengals, gaining the poise and confidence that comes with performing before an audience of 50,000. Serving with five other judges, Kristen explains the 2½-day process includes intensive interviews to reduce a field of over 100 hopefuls to just 15 finalists for each title. Miss Ohio finally was Madison Gesiotto of Massillon, Ohio, a gorgeous AND smart law student.

Fabulous-Furs provided wraps and accessories for the pageant program and when you see a few of the photos, we think you’ll agree Ohio has an incredible number of stunningly gorgeous gals.
