A native of Pawtucket, Karly Laliberte was crowned Miss Rhode Island USA on 8 August 2021 and represented Rhode Island at the Miss USA 2021 pageant in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Karly has a Bachelor degree in Studio Art from Fairfield University and a Masters of Science in Advertising from Boston University and was inspired to compete after watching Olivia Culpo win Miss Universe.
The on-stage moments, the tension of the final two and the glory of the crowning, here are Karly’s state pageant photos.
Lights, camera, action! Professional photoshoots are one of the perks that comes from winning a title.
There’s nothing better than watching a contestant progress from year to year! Karly was a semi-finalist in the 2019 pageant and first runner-up to Daisy DeMoranville at Miss Rhode Island USA 2018.
All beautiful things must come to an end, no matter how bittersweet. See Karly’s farewell walk and other candids from the weekend she crowned her successor Elaine Collado as Miss Rhode Island USA 2022.
Winning a state title is a sisterhood for life. Here are Karly’s “after the crown” photos.
