A Californian living in Las Vegas, Kataluna Enriquez was crowned Miss Nevada USA 2021 on 15 May 2021 and represented Nevada at the Miss USA 2021 pageant in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Kataluna, a fashion designer with her own label, made history as the first transgender contestant at Miss USA.
The on-stage moments, the tension of the final two and the glory of the crowning, here are Kataluna’s state pageant photos.
Lights, camera, action! Professional photoshoots are one of the perks that comes from winning a title.
Kataluna had competed once previously, finishing as a non-finalist at Miss California USA 2020.
All beautiful things must come to an end, no matter how bittersweet. See Kataluna’s farewell walk and other candids from the weekend she crowned her successor Summer Keffeler as Miss Nevada USA 2022.
