Friday's Miss Teen USA will feature gowns made by Elton's former designer, reported the Desert Sun on August 2, 2004.
Tadashi Shoji, who worked with the singer in the seventies (and was profiled in Herman's Habits), recently had some of his creations shown on the plastic surgery reality show, The Swan. He is already responsible for the evening gowns worn during the Miss USA and Miss Universe pageants.
In March, he opened a flagship store in Orange County. The California resident's next stop is Las Vegas, where he'll open a boutique in October.
