Even though I am from the USA, I hope our gal doesn't get near the podium. That child looks way, way too thin! She isn't even pretty, she's so thin. And the camera ADDS weight, so lord, what she must look like in person. I really wouldn't want her held up as the ultimate example of beauty. Not a good role model!
I know it's a no-no-Latina year, but Miss Costa Rica has fabulous legs!
Some people are just naturally leaner, but I agree that USA looks too thin. If she won, it could send the wrong signal to younger people watching the show.
Miss Chile's pandering whore miner costume.
Remember those poor, trapped men?
She's not pretty enough for this ploy to work, but thanks anyway for the cheapest looking costume I've seen in a while (aluminum foil comes in copper color?). Didn't we see this on Project Runway in Seth Aaron's season?
Some countries have a harder time coming up with costumes. The USA usually has The Statue of Liberty, an astronaut, or some version of a military uniform. Some countries' pageant program do not have the budget for this and the young woman just wears an evening gown.
Uh, er. Thanks for the lesson in socioeconomics?
My post was obviously a studied, expectatnt prelude.
Breaking news. There will be no winner this time. Everyone will get a pewter medal.
Miss Belgium must've thought she was on her way to an ice dance pageant.
Miss China's evening gown is stunning.
Columbia thought she was in the 70s on her way to Studio 54.
Cyprus' gown also has ice dance potential with the feathers and cut-outs.
Guatemala thought she was at a casting call for Dynasty. Kazakhstan was going with her.
Romania's gown is ridiculous. I must own it.
What on earth was Miss USA wearing?? The video edits out her solo walk, so I just saw as the whole group walked back out, but it didn't look good...
The piece is seventy-five minutes long...[l]ong enough for an idea to be developed, but not so long that one starts to measure the number of seats to the exits with desperation if the thing doesn’t work" -- Marina Harss
