Miss America and Miss Hawaii get back in bikinis... but this time they're off the strict pageant diet
Miss America and Miss Hawaii swapped the pageant stage for the beach for an unofficial swimsuit round in Maui on Monday.
But this time they were off the strict pageant
diet. In place of the fake tan, glossy hair and flat stomachs, the beauty queens looked more like normal girls with curves in all the right places as they filled out their bikinis.
Mallory Hytes Hagan, who won the Miss America title on January 12, looked gorgeous in a black bikini with gold accents.

Just wait while I tweet! Mallory was quick to share a snap with fans

The 24-year-old wore her blonde hair swept back from her face in a casual ponytail and
tinted sunglasses covered her eyes.
The 21-year-old Miss Hawaii Skyler Kamaka, meanwhile, looked pretty in a string bikini with red top and black bottoms.
The girls were enjoying some downtime off from their duties and at one point both sipped a cool iced beverage with a slice of lemon.
Red alert: Skyler, also pictured at the Miss America Pageant in January, was wearing her favorite colour
Mallory and Skyler had fun on the beach taking pictures of themselves with their camera
phones, with Mallory sharing the snapshot with her Twitter followers.
'Hello from Maui! With @misshawaii2012,' the curvy blonde wrote in the caption.
In February, the two friends were seen hanging out together in Maui as well.
Mallory, who was born in Alabama and now lives in Brooklyn, New York, has been spending a lot of time in Maui as part of her national media tour.

Since being crowned Miss America, she has traveled thousands of miles visiting various destinations on the East Coast for interviews and press events.
Mallory has also held the titles of Miss New York 2012, Miss New York City 2012, Miss Manhattan 2011 and Miss Brooklyn 2010.
Competing as Miss Diamond Head, Skyler was crowned Miss Hawaii on June 9, beating out 15 other contestants.
Thirsty work: The beauty queen kept herself hydrated
'This is the first time I’ve ever entered a pageant,' Skyler told the Honolulu Pulse shortly after receiving her crown.
'My preliminary pageant (for Miss Diamond Head) was my very first one, and this is my very first Miss Hawaii. I’m just ecstatic right now.
'My heart was racing,' she added. 'As soon as they called my name I was in shock. I couldn’t breathe. I’m just so honored.'
