Glitter…glamour…towering feather headdresses! It’s the always stunning Miss Universe National Costume Show and the candidates for the crown did not disappoint. During the National Costume Show at the Mall of Asia Arena on January 26th in the Philippines, the contestants’ costumes were as outstanding as we have come to expect.
We absolutely love Miss Portugal’s white lace-and-feathers costume which look straight out of a “Victoria’s Angels” fashion show. Miss Universe Brazil’s peacock costume was simply gorgeous (as were the well-toned legs the outfit showed off). Miss Haiti and Miss Jamaica’s native costumes were also head-turners, as was Miss Universe Indonesia’s elaborately beaded costume. Miss Universe Germany went in a different direction entirely, showing off her country’s epic Cinderella-like castles with a charming and unique costume headdress.
They will strut on-stage again during the 2017 Miss Universe Pageant competition on FOX at 7:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed on Sunday, January 29, live from the Philippines. Tune in to see which one of these women will become the new Miss Universe.
