Miss Universe 2017- A Review on Best in Evening Gown
Miss Universe 2017 will be the 66th edition of the Miss Universe pageant, which is slated to take place on November 26, 2017 at The AXIS, Las Vegas, Nevada, United States. During the conclusion of the pageant, Iris Mittenaere of France will crown her successor at the end of the event.
The preliminary evening gown competition was yet another insight to know the prowess of contestants better. After watching the energetic swimsuit segment, the sight of beholding elegance and grace was worth the wait. This year, more than twenty candidates gave a wonderful performance in the evening gown competition. Some of the performances which seemed impressive to me are here in no particular order-
Seems like Keysi Sayago from Venezuela is here to take the vengeance of Mariam Habach’s non-placement in the last edition. She was perfect delight to witness on stage and had the best twirl and turn during the performance. Classy is the word which defines her performance. Kára McCullough from USA proves why her sash is considered to be the dominant one in Miss Universe pageant. She walked like a dream and was beyond perfection in this round. The perfect balance of poise and fierceness makes Maria Poonlertlarp one of the favourites to win the Miss Universe crown this year. Thailand is here to win it all. Bunga Jelitha from Indonesia showed an immensely commendable energy and poise in evening gown round, no wonder why Indonesia has become one of the rising powers in pageantry. Demi Leigh Neil Peters from South Africa managed to pull off a noteworthy performance despite of the dull evening gown, if she continues to improve her styling on finale gala, she still has the chance to walk home with the Miss Universe crown.
I am highly certain about the high placement of Russia at Miss Universe this year. Ksenia Alexandrova just like swimsuit round, nailed the preliminary evening gown competition. Brazil performed incredibly well but Monalysa Alcântara suffered criticisms because of her trashy evening gown. (Also Read: Worst and Best Evening Gowns of Miss Universe 2017) Shraddha Shashidhar with that power packed performance asserted that India might be the sleeping powerhouse, but they are not dead. She is here to go a long way. Dominican Republic performed well but the ball gown made the audience miss her sultry and fierce moves during the evening gown prelims. Mark my words, Mexico is here to go far in the race to crown. What perfection in walk and stage projection, Denisse Franco is a bliss to watch on stage. Her elegant turn and twirls made me her fan.
Puerto Rico, Nigeria, Jamaica, Philippines, Germany, Korea and Great Britain gave memorable and magnificent performances in the preliminary round of evening gown competition.
