A Rochester-area mom and fashion expert has recently been chosen as Mrs. Metro-Detroit and will compete next year for the title of Mrs. Michigan and a chance to represent the state in the nationally televised Mrs. America Pageant.
Shannon Lazovski is CEO of SoGlam Media and founder of Detroit Fashion News. She is a fashion consultant and blogger for the Village of Rochester Hills. She is married to Zoran; they have two children and live in Washington Township.
"I am thrilled to be named Mrs. Metro Detroit and am very excited to compete in the Mrs. Michigan pageant," Lazovski said.
Lazovski is not a stranger to the pageant stage: years ago, she was on a seven-year winning pageant streak and was to set foot on the Miss Michigan pageant stage when she was injured in a serious car accident.
"The accident put a hold on my dreams and modeling career," she said. "At that point in my life, I had to focus on my health, my life plan and goals. Once I recovered, I decided to finish my college degree, get married and start a family of my own.
"If I am named Mrs. Michigan in March, then it was meant to be and I will know now how my pageant chapter ends."
Lazovski describes herself as a "curvy mother of two" who is honest, hard-working and motivated. "I feel I would be the perfect choice because I am no better than the other contestants, no better than any woman in my area or my state, in fact I am just like them. Like many moms, my challenge is to juggle it all and I seem to do it, just like many others.
"I feel the winner should be one that can relate to the people of this state and be a great Michigan representative when it's time to compete for the Mrs. America crown."
