Jackie BrunoMiss Massachusetts USA 2008
Today Bruno finishes her last week as a full-time radio sales executive with WFHN 107. Bruno, who was Miss Massachusetts Teen USA in 2003, was crowned Miss Massachusetts USA 2008 on Nov. 18. She's charting a path to a new future beginning tonight, when she meets Boston-based fashion photographer Arturo, who has an exhibit opening tonight at Foundation Lounge. Clemente Productions, which owns Miss Massachusetts USA and Miss Vermont USA, is running a pageant-prep weekend for newly crowned beauty queens and their teen pageant-winning sisters. There's an intensive photo session on Sunday to get shots for the glossies they'll distribute at public appearances, but the women will also work with pageant managers and sponsors to take care of the less glamorous matters, like contracts and policies, and plan wardrobes and appearance schedules leading to the grand Miss USA contest in the spring.
