The Miss Earth 2011 National Costume Competition was recently held at Acacia Hotel in Filinvest Alabang. All 85 contenders glided the runway in their best traditional attires and I just had to select the five ladies who wore them best. And they are as follows:
Miss Japan Tomoko Maeda wore my pick for Best National Costume. A very NOW geisha!
Miss India Hasleen Kaur wore a very fashionable Indian garb with colors that veer away from the usual earth tones in the past. This is my choice for 2nd best.
Call it showstopping. Casandra Becerra wore a visually glorious costume that is not at all unusual with beauty queens from Mexico. My 3rd best.
Miss Chinese Taipei Cherry Liu is an oriental goddess in this creation. My 4th best.
Andrea De Vivo Creazzo wore a Colombian national costume that is both colorful and eye-catching. The design is simple, but the impact is more eye candy than drag. My 5th best.
I wanted to concentrate on costumes that have strong themes of Mother Earth and the like. But since very few came up with environmentally-inspired ones, I decided to judge the same based on usual standards.
Watch out for my Miss Earth 2011 predictions this coming Saturday. 🙂
