From chocolate dresses to china-plated gowns and oyster bikinis: The most unique national costumes from Miss Universe
Women from around the world competed at the 61st annual Miss Universe pageant last week, where each contestant was asked to model an outfit representative of their own nation.
Giving the Victoria's Secret fashion show a run for its money, the beauty queens' oversize costumes were as clever as they were crazy.
From orange oysters to banana bras, coral reef wings and dresses made from chocolate, the 88 beauty queens that competed during the two-hour competition in Las Vegas, showed of the most bizarre 'national' costumes yet.
Alyssa Cruz Aguero, competing as Miss Guam, used her country's incredibly rare orange oysters to make a skimpy bikini bottom with matching accessories.
With only a blue train used for modesty, the contest's male MC said: 'I like what Iâ€™m seeing, and Iâ€™m not seeing much.'
Miss St. Lucia, Tara Edward, followed suit with a banana bra and matching headpiece. Banana leaves on her back and a giant corsage on her hip completed the tropical look.
Meanwhile Miss Bolivia, Yessica Mouton, chose her country's national flower as a coverup. Her exotic number was blooming with the patuju, worn as a bikini with an oversize, tentacle-like headpiece.
Following on with the all-natural theme, Jennifer Andrade, Miss Honduras, wore a costume weighing a hefty 50lbs.
The rhinestones, seashells and pearls covering her huge Victoria's Secret-like wings, ceiling-reaching headpiece and push-up bikini, represented the coral reef off the coast of her country.
Similarly elaborate was Miss British Virgin Islands' national outfit.
Abigail Hyndman, who was training to become a nun before she entered the pageant, made an incredibly heavy gown out of seashells, coral, sand dollars and faux lobster.
Miss Peru looked to the mountains and forests of her country for inspiration. Nicole Faveron's regal, and intimidating outfit, with thigh-high boots, feathered crown, and oversize cloak didn't really convey nature, but it was certainly mountainous.
Miss Mexico, Karina Gonzalez, showed a dress that was a lesson in arts and crafts. She invoked her countryâ€™s Aztec past with massive ancient symbols crafted from peacock feathers, rhinestones, sequins and silver.
And while 20-year-old Boston University sophomore, Olivia Culpo, brought the crown back to the U.S. for the first time in 15 years when she won the televised contest, her Statue of Liberty costume was probably not the deciding factor.
Miss Culpo walked out in an ethereal gown, which came with a red, white, and blue undercarriage. She had the details down, from the iconic pose to the diadem-shaped crown, and the oversized torch, adding her own dramatic shooting star wings.
