Showstoppers of the Miss Universe National Costume Parade

Last night at the beautiful Mandalay Bay Hotel & Casino, 83 contestants from the Miss Universe 2010 Pageant made their annual parade in national costumes. Rumors had already been circulating that Miss Australia, Jesinta Campbell's outfit design might have been in poor taste. Her preview in the colorful tiered skirt with Ugg boots, sheepskin shrug and hand-painted swimsuit by a Aboriginal artist was ridiculed in her own country. Although there were some others. Miss Venezuela, Marelisa Gibson who if wins will be the first country to have won three times in a row. It might not be due to her mirrored outfit.

The surprise was Miss USA, Rima Fakih who last week hinted she would be representing the bald eagle with olive branch and shooting arrows in her letter to President Obama. The wings are all American as well, they were made by Victoria Secret's costume designer!
