SANTA MONICA, CA – OCTOBER 1, 2021 – The MISS CALIFORNIA USA® and MISS CALIFORNIA TEEN USA® pageants announce new Executive Director Kristen Bradford, owner of Crown Diva Productions.


Miss California USA and Miss California Teen USA pageants are excited to bring back the glamour of Hollywood and restore the spirit of pageantry to one of the most decorated states in the Miss USA system. An event planner to the stars, Kristen Bradford is thrilled to produce a hybrid blend of pageantry and entertainment that perfectly aligns with the Miss USA organization’s vision of #PageantryReimagined 


“We will feature the aspects of pageantry that will help translate to a future career in the entertainment industry. We are the home of Hollywood and we want that to be recognizable on and off stage with all of our contestants and titleholders. Our brand of pageant includes returning the ideals and traditions that have made Miss California USA the premier pageant program for 70 years, yet relatable and suitable for today’s young women.”


Ms. Bradford brings over 20 years of experience with the Miss Universe Organization as a contestant, preliminary director, recruiter, and sponsor to produce a pageant program offering opportunities for young women between the ages of 14-28 for self-development, personal growth, and encouragement on setting attainable goals throughout life and on their journey to the crown. Kristen has prepared contestants all over the country for state, national, and international pageants.  She is ecstatic to be the new Executive Director for the Miss California USA and Miss California Teen USA pageants, and ready to return the Miss USA and Miss Teen USA title back to the Golden State.

During their reign, the representatives are given the resources and tools for both personal and professional enrichment. Their work with the organization’s valued professionals, will help cultivate personal career goals, humanitarian fellowship, and offer a constructive voice to affect positive change in our communities, across the state, and beyond.
