2010 Miss Universe national costumes. "Because there is nothing more cracktastic than the national costumes portion of the Miss Universe Pageant. It makes competitive figure skating costumes look understated and minimalist."

Some of these are really awesome. Australia, Mexico, Peru, Japan. They're like "Hey, we can celebrate our heritage and be totally couture too."

And then America. "It's like a gold corset/swimsuit. But with WINGS! Like an eagle! And STARS! Yeah! Go America!"

It's like the options available for women when they're looking for halloween costumes: sexy kitten, sexy nurse, sexy gangster, sexy US currency.

I think their commentary was pretty spot on.

I am amazed at the hubris of our U.S. costumers. Meanwhile, I love the one for Switzerland--the U.S. Imperial Angel/Eagle should face off against Lady Helvetica.

The hubris of America -- like the stuff on Miss Kazakhstan's head -- knows no bounds.

Speaking of, any idea what the individual plumage on Miss Kazakhstan's headdress is? It looks like it might be other country's flags, but this could just be my American-centric ignorance (which also unfortunately sometimes knows no bounds)

I don't think there are more than two contestants that don't have dark hair.

I checked the website that has everyone, and the only blondes are the contestants from: Sweden, Switzerland, Slovak Republic, Slovenia, Netherlands, Finland, and Canada. That's 6 out of 83. Crazy low.

I did find that Miss Universe 2004 was "the first blonde haired woman to win the title since Angela Visser of the Netherlands in 1989." So it seems like a long-term trend, that may have become a self-enforcing guideline. If you don't put blondes in, they don't win, and if they don't tend to win, you don't pick a blonde.

I found the commentary right on, too. All of the women themselves are lovely, of course. Some of the dresses are just whack, but that's kind of fun, anything with a printed photo on it aside (awful). The French one was sad, as the Eifel tower just seemed a last-second tack-on--have the courage of your convictions!

Am I the only person sexually attracted to women who finds "stripper shoes" a big turn-off? I'm curious how tall some of these women are in those giant heels--models tend to be tall, and some of them must be closing in on six-and-a-half-feet tall in those shoes.

A few years ago I ran across a similar Miss Universe gallery at work, the end result of which was the whole office spending a whole day on the Miss Universe website looking at the weird costumes and dresses.

The office had a Dutch guy who made frequent trips to Israel, and every time he was there he ended up coming back to the US with a woman who he referred to as his "vife" despite no legal ceremonies having occured (as far as any of us could tell), and each new vife was always gone from his life within a few months in any case. Knowing this, I was expecting him to flip out over Miss Israel, but he didn't.

When Miss Lebanon came around, though, he blurted out, "I vill go to Lebanon! She vill think I am a rich American and marry me, because her home is a bomb crater. Look at her eyes, she is so sad. She needs the tender love of Alex."

Duly, I examined this Miss Lebanon's eyes this year, but I think they're saying, "Why am I wearing this damned wimple?" more than anything about tender Dutch love.

posted by terpsichoria at 11:58 PM on August 18, 2010


I can't believe I'm saying this but I think a lot of people are misunderstanding the Miss USA outfit.

It's obviously an interpretation of the Presidential Seal of the United States. The obverse of the Great Seal? It's what is on your passport if you're American?

Those are eagle wings, not angel wings. That crap above her head is supposed to be thirteen mullets argent. Uh that would be silver stars. I assume it says "E pluribus unum" on the scroll. She should be surrounded by 50 stars and not 14 but I grudgingly suppose some consideration must be given to practicality when one is wearing a shiny gold corset, giant eagle wings, stripper shoes, and hanging stars off oneself. She's got an olive branch in her right hand and an arrow in her left. Should be 13 arrows but again she's being a lazy bum.

Is it the most tasteful outfit? Well, no. But it's easily one of the most relevant of the costumes. So I don't think it's fair to call it hubristic or weird or whatever.

Or she could have just put on a slutty dress like Canada. That's another way to go.

We caught that (hence "sexy US currency"). It's still amusing that she's the only contestant from the first part to be wearing a gold swimsuit. Actually, I've moved past that and am now more amused by part 2's Aruba, Croatia, etc, who are just like "Ehh... bikini. Sure, that'll work".

Also, it's possible to be relevant without dressing up like an anthropomorphic Presidential Seal. See: Nigeria, Mexico, Guatemala, etc.

Yeah, I was a tad surprised that Ms India's traditional costume didn't involve some variation of a gagra-choli or a sari, but this works for me; the dress is clearly inspired by a peacock, and I love the explanation given (from the HT article):

The peacock feathers make up the pallu that spreads open when she does the Namaste.

That's quite neat actually.

Nice too!
