Chef Philippe Chow

The 2011 Miss USA contestants caused quite a stir at the world-renowned Philippe Chow New York recently, for their evening soirée as they entered the restaurant with their stunning bright dresses and killer heels. With perfect smiles, the girls mingled with one another in the restaurant’s private room on the second floor while devouring the gourmet Chinese cuisine. The evening was held as a pre-pageant activity before the contestants head to Las Vegas for the 60th anniversary of the Miss USA pageant at the Theatre for the Performing Arts in Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino. The annual pageant will be held on Sunday, June 19, 2011 and aired live on NBC from 9:00PM to11:00PM EST. The dinner was the first time all of the beautiful contestants dined together, along with President of the Miss Universe Organization, Paula M. Shugart.
