If there is anyone that is currently leading in the race for the Miss Universe crown, no one could dispute that Miss Puerto Rico Bodine Koehler could easily be that woman. Her curvaceous body and that confidence that one should expect from a Boricua propelled Bodine at the forefront of the race. And her National Costume is meant to exploit her biggest asset. Sporting a Taino inspired costume, Bodine will draw ohs and ahs at Miss Universe 2012. Tainos are pre-Columbian inhabitants of what is now Puerto Rico and vast parts of Caribbean. To appreciate its contribution to the Western civilization, consider this - the word hurricane is actually from the Taino word huracan. Thus, many nations in the Caribbean, Puerto Rico included pay homage to the earliest inhabitants of the region.
Culturally relevant, creative and above all show stopping, this costume is truly an amazing work of art. It reveals the history of Puerto Rico and above all, it reveals the sexy and stunning body of Bodine. Well done, Puerto Rico!
