Congratulations to Kitten Jill Smith!!
Jill Smith is no stranger to the Glamour Girl contest as she placed second in the Kittens category in 2016. This year, Jill wasn’t finishing second to anyone as she not only won the Kitten Category, she is now our Grand Champion.

One look at Jill’s entry photos above, and you can see why our judges chose her to be this years Grand Champion. From her outfits to her makeup to the photos themselves, everything was flawless.

Jills road to becoming champion, started like most of us, when around the age of 5 or 6, she started to “borrow” her sisters clothes. While dressing would come in and out of her life over the years, it was in 2014 that Jill decided to really “focus on refining my look in an attempt to appear as a natural girl my age would.” I know I’m not alone when I say she has hit it out of the park.
When I asked Jill how she decided on her femme name, she told me that “The name Jill just seemed right as my mother told me that would have been my name if I had been born a girl. Although it sounds rather generic, I actually took the name Smith from a girl I used to work with who had the most amazing wardrobe and always looked amazing, I was so jealous!”
Born and raised in NYC, Jill now calls Queens her home. Jills very busy life doesn’t always offer her the chance to dress, usually only getting a handful of nights every month or so. Luckily, the last two years, Jill has been able to attend the Keystone Conference and was able to live completely as Jill for those four days which had her in “total heaven!”
I asked Jill what was her favorite thing to do while dressed and she responded “My absolute favorite thing to do is to just spend time and hang out with my girlfriends. We all share this special bond that many people do not understand, it is awesome to just to be able to talk so openly and honestly among friends.”
In her spare time, if she’s not “shopping for cute outfits and purses, you can catch Jill out for a run or watching sports, especially her favorite team the New York Yankees (a girl after my own heart) during baseball season.
When we gave Jill the exciting news, the newly crowned Champion said, “It is a total honor to be selected among an amazing group of women who are all beautiful and deserving in their own right. The biggest thrill is having a donation made in my name to the National Center for Transgender Equality who fight to make this country a better place for all of us. A special thank you to Glamour Boutique for putting together this wonderful contest to celebrate how glamorous we all are!”
