The Miss Universe 2012 Contestants visit Jubilee dancers during a tour of the show on Thursday, December 6th at Bally's in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The Jubilee! showgirls are everything you expect to see in a Vegas production show. Bob Mackie (think Cher's elaborate outfits) and Peter Menefee are the show's original costume designers. There are 1,000 different costumes in the show made with 8,000 miles of sequins. The rhinestones used on the costumes are silver-plated Swarovski crystals and the headpieces can weigh up to 35 pounds.Jubilee! has been a Vegas staple since it opened in 1981 under the direction of Donn Arden, who first brought "Lido de Paris" to Vegas in 1959. "Lido" was one of the first topless shows in town and Arden certainly came up with a winning formula. If you're looking for classic Vegas, Jubilee! is the epitome of the topless production show.
