The Ten (10) National Costumes that stood out in my eyes.
From among the 86 (eighty-six) National Costumes presented in the Miss Universe 2013 National Costume Parade at Vegas Mall yesterday, I picked ten (10) stands-outs for different reasons as follows:
USA – playfully original
Switzerland – show-stoppingly gorgeous
Argentina – lovingly magical
Malaysia – fashionably well-executed
Vietnam – a tasteful rendering of an all-time classic
Russia – truly mystifying
Bolivia – appealingly kaleidoscopic
Brazil – traditionally colorful and exciting to look at
China – regal inventiveness
Japan – another traditional stand-out in color and execution
If you ask me, Best in National Costume would be a three-way toss among host Russia, China and Vietnam.
So which National Costume met your taste? 🙂
Jonas Gaffud arriving at Moscow's Domododevo Airport earlier.
The allies of Miss Philippines Ariella Arida have started arriving in Moscow one by one. Mentor Jonas Gaffud of Aces & Queens is the latest to land in Moscow’s Domododevo Airport where, after just a few hours of rest, will head straight to Vegas Mall to support our bet’s participation in the National Costume Competition of Miss Universe 2013.
As for the event’s live streaming link, I have yet to get hold of a reliable one, but something should come up as we get closer to the scheduled time of the activity (around 1am Manila time). 😉
The National Costume Competition happens on November 3!
Just when you thought that cold Moscow has no traces of hot Las Vegas, then this post should let you know that a Vegas Mall is in the midst of the Russian capital. And this will be the venue of the Miss Universe 2013 National Costume Competition happening next Sunday, November 3.
Finally, we shall get to see the traditional attire Miss Philippines Ariella Arida will wear. Will it be another Colombian-sourced creation or a Proudly-Philippine-made original? 😉
And since this event will likely be free to the public (being inside a shopping mall), all Moscow-based Filipinos should come and throw cheers and support for our rep. Besides, it’s going to be on a Sunday night. 🙂
