The Miss Too Cute Pageant celebrates "The Ultimate Girly Girl". Our goal is to empower girls to stand out, love themselves, and embrace their beauty. We provide not only a pageant, but an experience to all contestants and winners.
Cortnee Gutierrez is the Creator and National Director of the Miss Too Cute Pageant & Workshops. It is a forum for girls ages 1-13 years old that focuses on self-esteem, etiquette, sportsmanship, and stage presence. No stranger to pageantry, she is most humble about her reign as the 2013 Miss Black Illinois USA. Reaching the national platform, she was able to place as 3rd runner-up and win the National Community Service Award. She is the ultimate pageant girl! She has competed in multiple systems and has won many awards. Being a titleholder gives her an edge in knowing “the pageant experience” that will grow every participant.
Cortnee believes that having a vision manifests success, and that the system of pageantry has something to offer each young girl. With a heart to help others, Cortnee has devoted herself to ensure that each client and princess she services leaves a lasting sparkle on their stage. She enjoys empowering girls around the globe and wants them to remember that they are always wearing an invisible crown. Through the unique and fresh curriculum of the Miss Too Cute Workshops, Cortnee wants to continue the path of teaching self-worth and etiquette.
Cortnee is a believer in Christ, wife, mother, and entrepreneur. She has a master’s degree in Public Administration from Roosevelt University in Chicago and a Bachelor of Science in Political Science and Germanic Studies from the University of Illinois at Chicago. In her spare time, she can be found simply enjoying the peace and quiet. The best has yet to come. She has declared that this will be her year as a “Record Breaker”.
