With her eyes moist with tears, Edymar Martinez first hugged herself and then clench both of her fists up in the air as she savored her hard-earned victory. The crowd politely obliged and burst into applause. Then the majestic red crown encrusted with pearls was neatly placed on her head. The ethereal beauty of Edymar who represented Venezuela, swept the judges off their feet and thus awarded with the Miss International title.

Venezuela’s 7th Miss International crown came into fruition and it was a moment of swirling emotions for Edymar. It was won largely through her shapely body as she was awarded with the highest honors reserved to the sexiest of them all. But, was it also possible that the unique gown which was seemingly unlike any other that we’ve seen at Miss International, a key to her victory?

Hugo Espina, the designer of the gown, should be the name to be remembered on this pageant year and beyond. Though he is pretty much famous in his native Venezuela, he is a designer that is barely recognized outside of his home country. Hugo had been designing gowns for Miss Venezuela contestants and in particular he enjoyed designing gowns for Edymar who represented the state of Anzoátegui at the nationals.

What Hugo designed for Edymar at Miss International was something that was outside of the box. The soft white gown was both elegant and playful yet really it was more of a simple laced white wardrobe. Amazingly, it worked just right! The secret? The gown was generously beaded with rhinestones and white pearls that created a perfect match with the Miss International crown.

Though there were some oddities with the gown, it actually complemented the youthful glow of Edymar

Edymar’s gown may not be the apple of so many eyes but it complemented well her youthful beauty. When the ceremonial cape was placed upon her, it was as if it molded with her gown. All the perceived oddities of its design – bell-ended sleeves, linear patterns and all – simply melted away. Truly, it was at the moment of Edymar’s crowning that everyone saw the genius of Hugo Espina’s creative mind.

    This gown is ugly and the only reason why people are excusing its ugliness Is because the wearer won the crown.

    If this candidate did not win, who is already well trained and beautiful by Venezuelan standards, then the same criticism against this gown would be rendered by the Public media. The same bashing was given to the gown of Mariana Jimenez of Venezuela at the Miss Universe pageant due to her non-placement.

    The truth is that the gown was weird to say the least. She won because of her amazing beauty. Let me predict one thing, this girl is going to be a future Victoria Secret super model. She has the IT look for it.
