pearl-earings

The Princess of the Mushroom Kingdom herself!! Took a few liberties, of course!!! Probably about to be kidnapped aaaany second now…. ^^

Completely off topic, but since I looked at it so much the past couple days, I came to the realization…. the girl in the original painting totally reminds me of Brienne of Tarth from Game of Thrones. Yeah?! Yeah.


Based on Vermeer’s ‘Girl With a Pearl Earring’ (1665)

Miss Oklahoma 2017, Triana Browne, is a citizen of the Chickasaw Nation. This weekend, she featured contemporary takes on traditional Chickasaw women’s clothing at the “Show Us Your Shoes” Parade, which Miss America contestants walk in, and feature designs that represent their home state. 

Triana wore jewelry designed by Chickasaw jeweler Kristen Dorsey, a romper (inspired by traditional Chickasaw women’s ribbon dresses) by Chickasaw designer Courtney Parchcorn and Cherokee designer Buddy Parchcorn, a traditional finger woven belt by Chickasaw weaver Ashley Wallace, a leather belt by Chickasaw artist Maya Stewart, and custom beaded heels by Courtney and Buddy Parchcorn, which feature the seals of the Chickasaw Nation and State of Oklahoma. 

Good luck competing for Miss America, Triana! Indian Country is rooting for you <3
