Laura Lee Lewis: the face of Miss MSU. The 21-year-old from Brookhaven, MS has spent the last year representing Mississippi State University with style, grace, and class. She is a senior elementary education major with a heart for learning and an even bigger passion for children. Her platform, Mentoring Matters!, emphasizes the importance of mentoring and stresses the long-term values youth can gain from mentor relationships.
During her time as Miss MSU, she has partnered with Deep South Pout as an official sponsor. Consequently, she has represented Deep South Pout in more ways than one while fulfilling her duties as Miss MSU. Laura Lee has worn DSP clothing to numerous events, promoted product through social media, and has even modeled for the boutique. A few examples include appearances at various MSU sporting events, community events like the Cotton District Arts Festival, and the Miss Mississippi pageant in July.
Of all her experiences with Deep South Pout, Laura Lee reminisced about one particular event that stands out among the others. Her favorite DSP memory as Miss MSU was the MSU home game verses Alabama. The pageant was held the previous evening, making it her very first appearance upon earning the new title. She walked out onto Scott Field at Davis Wade Stadium wearing a tight fitted maroon jersey dress with a black blazer, black pumps, and Love, Poppy jewelry. Not only was this her favorite memory with Deep South Pout, but it was also her first.
When asked about her relationship with Deep South Pout, Laura Lee only had overwhelmingly positive comments about the boutique. “They take something and make it this thing that you think is going to be good, but it’s always more. It’s good to great with them, or rather, great to incredible!” Lewis explains. “It’s always extraordinary with Deep South Pout.”
As her time as Miss MSU 2013 comes to an end, Laura Lee explained that she will miss all of the one-of-a-kind experiences and personal touches that come along with this special title. In regards to her future with Deep South Pout, Laura Lee exclaimed that she is “never going to stop shopping with them! You can find everything you need in the store.” She would also love to continue modeling for DSP and work alongside this family she now calls her own.
