Miss Universe National Costumes: China and Peru bring it on (3rd update)

UPDATED: August 14

Panama wins Best in National Costume:

2nd place goes to Nicaragua

and 3rd place to Ecuador

I’m disappointed that China was complete shut out; judges obviously don’t appreciate understated elegance.

Move over, Japan! The fiercest National Costumes belong to Misses China and Peru:

Another fasyon-winning moment for China.

Peru’s front and back views of her costume, “La Diablada,” which is based on a character from local folklore.

Here are the other candidates whose costumes stood out at the presentation show:

Indonesia. I am now rooting for this girl as well.

Costa Rica in a Pollera

France champions the vaudeville!

Venezuela. I don’t know what this is, but that face is pure glamor.

Singapore as a lovely orchid

USA in a NASCAR costume

Panama, also in a devil-inspired costume, titled “Diablo de Portobelo.”

Japan, with a covered-up version of her original costume, which angered the Japanese public.

Seriously, I am just thankful that Pamela looks gorgeous despite the sacrilegious terno.

    I like Venezuela's costume. reminds me of My Fair Lady. I also like Indonesia's costume.I think we should take a cue from other countries. Maybe next year our representative should go as Mariang Makiling or Maganda. O kaya Sarimanok na lang ulit ala Ruffita.

    True, true! Medyo di pa nga natin nasagad yung Sarimanok look — ang dami pang possibilities na kayang gawin do'n. I also liked Dindi Gallardo's, simple lang but very elegant; I think that was Maranao. Yung barong tagalog, I think pwede din gumawa ng stylized, female version.

    Pang-editorial talaga si Ms. China! I'm glad that Pamela's make-up was not too heavy compared to the earlier pics — but it never helped the costume.

    Ang dami pa talagang opportunities. The Bb. Pilipinas Organization just lacks vision and creativity.I remember a collection by Rajo that was inspired by the Pintados. Very chic but very Pinoy pa rin. Why don't they just use that na lang?
