I am loving the National Costume of Miss Universe Nepal Anshika Sharma – an ode to mountaineers who have conquered Mount Everest.
This modern ensemble is not complicated but very reflective of one of the country’s contributions to the Universe.
It takes a village to build a National Costume. And nowhere is this more evident than what Miss Universe Malaysia Francisca Luhong James will wear for the 69th Miss Universe – a #kampungku or translated from Bahasa Malaysia as “my hometown”.
She is literally bringing a representation of her village to the competition. Wow! 😯
To be host delegate and birthday celebrant at the same time – that is Miss USA 2020 Asya Danielle Branch for you.
You have the shortest travel time to Hollywood, Florida among the candidates – less than 90 minutes by plane from Mississippi. But you have one of the most demanding responsibilities in the 69th Miss Universe – a 23 year-old big sister to 73 delegates.
The one country gunning for a back-to-back win in the 69th Miss Universe is South Africa. They were close to achieving a three-peat before, if you will recall.
And Miss South Africa 2020 Natasha Joubert is not leaving any stone unturned in her mission. Never mind if Venezuela has already done it first. The important thing is to win.
