6 most beautiful Miss Mississippi USA 2023 candidates

The Miss Mississippi USA 2023 coronation night will take place at Pearl River Resort in Choctaw, Neshoba County, Mississippi, United States on April 1, 2023. It is the 65th edition of the state-level beauty pageant that selects Mississippi’s candidate for Miss USA, which selects the Miss Universe candidate of the U.S.

Currently, Mississippi has 12 Miss USA placements including the first runner-up finish of Leah Laviano in 2008, the coronation of Asya Branch in 2020 and the Top 16 finish of Bailey Anderson in 2021. Branch finished in the Top 21 at Miss Universe 2020.


Representing Southern Magnolia, Hailey White was 23 when she was crowned Miss Mississippi USA 2022 at Pearl River Resort in Choctaw on April 2, 2022. The respective first, second, third and fourth runners-up were Hannah Perrigin of Lowndes County, Michaela Lian of South Mississippi, Sydney Russell of Lauderdale County and Maggie Ulmer of Oxford.

There are 28 women competing for the Miss Mississippi USA 2023 crown. If facial beauty is the only criterion, these will be my Top 6 candidates:


#6. Megan DiCenzo (Yoknapatawpha)


#5. Rae Ann Riddle (Tupelo)


#4. M’Tajia Altman (Clarke County)


#3. Rylie Ozbirn (New Albany)


#2. Sydney Russell (Lauderdale County)


#1. Kaylee Brooke McCollum (Monroe County)

  1. Hello there,
    I noticed your post
    Great article! It is really interesting to see how Mississippi has had a lot of Miss USA placements. My question for the author is, what other criteria are being considered aside from facial beauty in selecting the winner of Miss Mississippi USA 2023? Thank you!
