Hilarious Miss Universe National Customs *Choose the freakiest*

Miss Universe contestants dress up

The contestants in the Miss Universe competition have been showing off some bizarre dresses designed to reflect their country's culture.

Thousands of spectators packed the Reforma Avenue in Mexico City to watch the striking, beautiful and in some cases strange costumes, worn by the hopefuls to win the beauty pageant, which will be held in the Mexican capital on May 28.

The loudest cheer was unsurprisingly for Miss Mexico, or Rosa Maria Ojeda, whose dress was decorated with images of Mexican food, including corn on the cob and tropical fruit, alongside symbols of ancient Indian cultures.

Miss USA (Rachel Smith) who wore a very creative female Elvis Presley costume, was booed by the audience, due to the unstable political relations between Mexico and the United States.

Such situation reminded the incident which happened during the Miss Universe 1993 contest when Miss USA (Kenya Moore) was booed during the whole telecast until she was voted off by the judges.

A dreadlocked Miss Jamaica, or Zahra Redwood, the first Rastafarian to compete for the beauty prize, went for a reggae theme with a T-shirt of singer Bob Marley.

And Inga Skaya wore an ice hockey uniform to represent Canada's favorite sport.

Several contestants from seafaring nations selected marine themes. Miss Denmark, Zaklina Sojic, dressed like a mermaid. And Miss Dominican Republic, Massiel Taveras, shouldered two dolphins and sea plants.

There was some protests, with one group of women wearing white dresses covered in fake blood trying to draw attention to towns or states in Mexico where women have been raped or killed, in some cases with alleged involvement by police or soldiers.

Re: Hilarious Miss Universe National Customs *Choose the freakiest*

According to several sources the award will be decided on audience applause 9 give it to mexico already) it is important to note however the national costme, congeniality, or photogenic contests have no bearing on winning the overall pageant as their scores do not factor in.

All washed up? Beauty queen Kimberley Busteed



Looking to stay afloat amidst the world's most beautiful women Australia's Miss Universe contestant Kimberley Busteed has selected a lifesaver's outfit to parade as the national costume.

Not noted as the the most elegant of the competition's many segments, the national costume segment is at the least guaranteed to get the attention of the judges.

Kimberley's selected lifesaver look in the year that marks the centenary of surf lifesaving Down Under combines a red one-piece swimsuit, a red and yellow cap and a lifesaver's flag in what critics have called "ugly" and "silly".

The contest will be held in Mexico City on May 28.

(The judges obviously don't know about our culture and called ugly and silly is insulted!)


Inspiration is for amateurs
