Columbus-based retailer Express has a new venture: They are the official sponsor of this year's Miss America. Their involvement began at the Jan. 14 pageant, with the crowning of Laura Kaeppeler of Wisconsin as the 2012 winner. Throughout the year, Express will outfit Kaeppeler as she makes appearances around the country, and she'll wear looks from each season's collection. Kaeppeler made a trip to Express' Polaris location earlier this month to check out some of the brand's styles and put together her future outfits.
