American beauty pageant titleholder, she was crowned Miss America 1952, and was the first Miss Utah to win the pageant. At age 25 (the maximum age that an entrant may be), Colleen Kay Hutchins is the second-oldest contestant to capture the crown (Debra Sue Maffett, Miss America 1983, is the oldest by a few months).

Her brother, Mel Hutchins, became a basketball player in the NBA for the Milwaukee Hawks, Fort Wayne Pistons, and New York Knicks in the 1950s.

Hutchins met future husband Ernie Vandeweghe at a New York Knicks basketball game at Madison Square Garden after a friend introduced her to the team's forward. The couple married in May 1953, and had four children: son, Kiki, a professional basketball player and executive; daughter, Tauna, an Olympic swimmer, son, Bruk; and daughter, Heather. Hutchins is also the grandmother of professional tennis player CoCo Vandeweghe, daughter of Tauna.

The Vandeweghes resided in Indian Wells, California, Laguna Beach, California and Palm Springs, California. She died on 24 March 2010 in Newport Beach at age 83.
