1. Miss Australia – Dame Edna Inspired
Inspired by the drag queen attire and eyeglasses worn by the infamous Dame Edna, Monika Radulovic wore this outfit as her National costume in the Miss Universe competition. Miss Australia’s homeland is reflected in the scales, reef inspired designs and eyeglasses which incorporate distinctive waves. Sydney designer Timothy Cubbo did not expect the beauty queen to sport the cumbersome eyeglasses on stage, but happily wore the purple wig over her own hair.
2. Miss Thailand – Tuk Tuk
A Tuk Tuk was the theme of Miss Thailand’s National costume in the Miss Universe competition. Painted in the colors found on the Thai flag, the rickshaw worn by Aniporn Chalermburanawong also featured thigh high tights, a mini-skirt, as well as a headlight and handlebars on a stunning blue bustier.
