Honestly, it wasn’t that difficult selecting 15 ladies who stood out in the Miss Universe 2010 Evening Gown Photos by Matt Petit. I was probably vacillating a bit between my 15th and 16th picks, but it’s all good.
Instead of focusing on who wore the Best Evening Gown, I gave more points on who wore it well and posed with fierceness. After all, the whole pageant has been modernized to no end so out with traditionalism and in with evolution.
If I had to pick my Best 5 shots, the ladies on top would be Venezuela, Philippines, Ireland, Japan and Puerto Rico, with Russia being close behind in 6th.
For Venus Raj supporters who are up in arms against the orange gown she was shot wearing, please be reminded once more that this is not what she will don for the preliminaries. Nonetheless, she really went to the max with her relatively unorthodox pose and came out successful. I can say with certainty that she gave the best pose among the ladies.
Onwards with the body-painted swimwears (or 50%-reduced bikinis since a number of the ladies decided to go topless) which should add endless steam to the already controversial Fadil Berisha photoshoot. Watch out for our own Venus here where she was brushed in gold! 😉
