Miss Universe 2016: The Best and Worst Dressed Queens
Talking about Miss Universe and you miss the discussion on the worst and best evening gowns? Bizarre ain’t it? So how could I miss to present my ideas on which evening gown impressed me with the charisma and which horrendously horrified me. In my former article, I expressed my views on the best evening gown round performances, but here my attention is not how the girl carried herself in the evening gown but solely on how impressive a particular evening gown is. So let’s go!
The Gowns Which Were a HIT
Brazil- Raissa Santana
Everyone remember the graceful and fierce performance of Miss Brazil, but what one can never forget is the beautiful evening gown which accentuated the beauty of the exotic beauty. On the preliminary competition eve, Raissa Santana was found wearing a creation of Alexandre Herchcovitch. The gown had floral appliques embellished with hundreds of precious crystals from Bohemia, Czech Republic. The gown is totally a ten on ten!
India- Roshmitha Harimurthy
It’s after a long long time that Miss India has been given such a magnificent evening gown. This beautiful gown was designed by Swapnil Shinde. Everything about this gown was sheer perfection! From the plunging neckline, charming bead work and full length sleeves, the cold red coloured gown shouted loud elegance and radiance!
France- Iris Mittenaere
Not any typical evening gown, Iris’s sunburst yellow sequined off shoulder gown was totally highlighting her ethereal beauty. From the perfectly fitted shape which accentuated her curves, the mermaid shaped gown was a hit, crammed with a lot of grace and elegance. The colour was a stand out in the crowd!
Mexico- Kristal Silva
Kristal Silva is known for her fierce persona and in that beautiful evening gown she did not look less than a queen. The crystal embellished evening gown and the high slit made her look congenial all the more!
Ukraine- Alena Spodynyuk
This Ziad Nakad evening gown deserves a standing ovation! What a masterpiece! If Alena Spodynyuk places in the semi-finals tonight, this evening gown is surely responsible for taking her one step closer to it.
The Gowns Which Were a MISS
Kazakhstan- Darina Kulsitova
This evening gown was the biggest miss of the pageant. Though designed nicely and embellished with lots of precious gems, the delegate representing the gown could not even stand properly. Her weary body language every time she held on the pleats to walk was easily visible.
Bolivia- Antonella Moscatelli
This evening gown looked more like a gift wrapping paper than a dress to be worn at a major event like Miss Universe. The colour was quite pale and the laces and ribbons just made the entire appearance quite shoddy.
Sweden- Ida Ovmar
If you noticed, she wore the same evening gown in the National Costume Round. The gown appeared more to be the collection of solitaire cards and less of an impactful dress to highlight a beauty queen’s beauty on a pageant like Miss Universe.
Myanmar- Htet Htet Htun
We have already seen so many cupcakes and ribbon memes with respect to evening gowns presented in former editions of Miss Universe, and this one joins the cluster of the very same club. The colour seems too harsh on eyes, and instead of highlighting the delegate’s beauty it makes her look a bit timid and bulky.
Croatia- Barbara Filipović
The evening gown tried to replicate Oxana Fedorova’s style with minimal changes and was totally a flop. The evening gown appeared more like a casual sundress to be worn on a casual day out. The length issues and styling overall just made the entire look a miss.
