For the Best in National Costume, Miss International is right in giving the official award to Miss Honduras Nicole Velasquez. This Mayan inspired costume draws its historical significance from a glorious and by-gone era of pre-Columbian Honduras. Relevant, festive and truly Honduran.
Miss Estonia Xenia Likhacheva's costume lacks inspiration and bereft of any creativity. The only relevance of the costume are the colors which reflects the Estonian flag otherwise this could just be a disastrous fashion statement.
Gionni Straccia strikes again! The famous designer who created the successive yellow, red, blue gowns for Dayana, Stefania and Marelisa, now made this great creation of crystals on red canvas for Miss Venezuela Blanca Aljibes. The meticulously beading on the upper part is very artful and gives an air of sophistication. What is not apparent from the picture above is how generous is the cut at the back giving the whole creation a sophisticated feel on the front and sexiness written all over at the back.
Miss Israel Yael Markovich forgot the fact that white is the color of mourning in East Asian cultures. Okay maybe in modern Japan it could mean something else but this is still a disastrous gown. It starts with that enormous skirt. And then notice how the bodice resembles Ivian's pink gown at Miss World last year? Maybe this is supposed to Barbie-esque but the busy and layers upon layers of ruffles makes this gown a turn-off.
Miss Colombia Melissa Varón no doubt got the right curves at the right places. This girl is really hot. Her body is simply divine. She's a true goddess making her as the best in swimsuit. Meanwhile Miss Sweden Katarina Konow got that big thighs and a body that is not really in proportion, making her as the worst in swimsuit.
