Pretty as a picture! Filming has started in Baton Rouge, La., for the 51 contestants of the 2014 Miss USA Pageant, and our Miss Nevada Nia Sanchez is looking pretty as can be in first photos from the Mississippi River city.

One of her first on-arrival projects was Nia’s glamour shoot with photographer Fadil Berisha. Then it was a fashion show with traditional and fashionable hat wear, and Nia is wearing them well.

We’ll continue to track Nia’s progress right up to Donald Trump’s annual pageant airing Sunday on NBC.
