From all the pictures I've seen, Honduras (http://www.missuniverse.com/members/profile/469344) has the most beautifully interesting contestant.
Kenia Martinez (http://www.missuniverse.com/members/profile/469344)(her name) is also 26, so the chances of her to shine as a smart one are good too, therefore I won't be surprised if she takes the title this year.

I completely believe that Miss Nigeria just goes out grocery shopping dressed like that.

(And that Khazakstan was a dumping ground for nuclear waste in Soviet Days because only severe genetic mutation would explain thinking that headdress was a good idea.)

ETA: And no joke, guys. First rule of ground warfare in Euorpe is OMFG DO NOT START ANYTHING WITH SWITZERLAND. What the tulle has to do with it, though, is anyone's guess.

Son of ETA: Uh, Zambia? Just no.

Return of the son of ETA: Is it scary that I am SURE that out there, someone finds Miss Great Britain's national costume a turn-on?

ETA: The Beginning: Actually, I give massive props to Ukraine. That outfit is WEIRD (I agree, Miss India and Miss Norway, go stand in a corner, gorgeous and tasteful means you misesed the memo) but it makes COMPLETE SENSE. At least half my genetic/cultural heritage can be proud. (The other half is torn between wondering how a brunette got chosen #1 anything in Poland and being deeply ashamed of my race's fashion sense.)

Spanish dress is boring :shuffle:

My first thought when I saw Spain was "Why is she wearing an American flag?" :o

I think Italy is trying to start something with Switzerland. Both ladies brought swords. There's something to be said for the idea of deciding the Miss Universe contest with swordfights.

Colombia and Venezuela. Venezuela probably has more top 10 contestants than anyone other than US I'll bet.
Canada is hot, but kinda porny.

Some day I'll tell you all my fascinating story, complete with outrage and political intrigue surrounding my stint judging in the Miss US Virgin Islands pageant in 1995.

Let's just the say the contestant who was second last on my ballot (of 9) won. 5 ft 4, 135 lbs, later found out her family has money and her mother represented a few decades earlier. And, in the Miss Univ pageant she finished second last to Miss Bonaire. I was shocked she placed that high...

fave national costumes from

http://community.livejournal.com/ohnotheydidnt/50069359.html

Georgia, Great Britain, Philippeans, Italy,

also interesting USA, Mexico, Brazil, Sri Lanka, and India

And I like Spain's dress. It's cute. But the Ukraine wheat dress? mmm. the sash is nice. the model looks like a model. but wheat?
could someone explain Dominican Republic's headdress? Or the reason two contestants are holding gourds.

I think the Guyana contestant has a Naomi Campbell bad girl vibe. She looks very supermodel-ish.

And YIKES Miss Puerto Rico. The nude fabric makes it look as if she forgot to wear undies or the bottom of her costume.

And lastly, the Worst Pose goes to Serbia.

I agree about about Miss Puerto Rico forgetting her undies. Miss USA looks like like she is wearing a super hero costume the Gold Winged Wonder Woman).

USA's costume is the bald eagle on the presidential seal. The designer that created all those wings for the Victoria's Secret fashion show did the costume.

I like the idea but the outfit is ugly...

Ever since Japan did the samurai costume in 2006 complete with a katana, many nations started using warrior princess costumes. At least they are more interesting than folk ones because they are usually fug...

Ms France, safe costume but she should have worn these shoes with the costume. (http://www.farfetch.com/shopping/women/item10035602.aspx)

I am buying these shoes by the way.. its a splurge

Ms. USA looks a little bit too much Kim Kardashian-ish in some of her photos :scream:

I am ready for an African lady to win, but this year it will go to Haiti. Too much buzz around her, and she is gorgeous.

Miss Ghana is stunning. And a medical student too. Belgium (http://cdn.missuniverse.com/media/photos/galleries/photo_cron_1_8_0_2010.jpg) is channeling young Sophia Loren here. :eek:
