:: Miss Universe ’13, Post Prelim thoughts part 3 (Evening Gown Competition)

This is probably one of the best Preliminary Competitions ever! And as far as the Evening gown segment is concerned, there were so many beautiful and stunning gowns and the ladies carried them with aplomb. All 86 delegates have been divided into 6 groups, so here is what I think the top 5 Best in each group, and later on, let’s find out who wins D’BEST in EVENING GOWN.


Bolivia takes the lead in this group

Group 5: This is the toughest group! Commendable performances were given by Philippines, Paraguay and Peru but the Top 5 in this group are the following:
1. PUERTO RICO – I love how Monic started with the dress! It was a crucial first impression and it worked!
2. RUSSIA – Elmira gave me goosebumps, I never expected she was amazing in this round. That bright red gown made her stand out and her long trail made her appear taller, and she won me over when she nodded the audience, that was genius!
3. POLAND – Ugh! She’s absolutely gorgeous! Beautiful face!
4. SPAIN – Patricia’s gown was fabulous! She was magnificent!

Group 6: – I was expecting so much that Venezuela will top this round, but as much as I love Gabriela, she appeared nervous and she looked uncomfortable in her highly beaded gown, good thing she was able to pick it up towards the end but the  5 girls that outperformed her in this group are:
1. TURKEY – Gosh, this woman is soo in! Her gown was risque’ but I love love it!
2. UKRAINE – she was soft, endearing and absolutely lovely!
3. SWITZERLAND – Fierceness! Her hair complimented her overall look wearing that black gown! She was sensational!
4. USA – Red is definitely her color! Erin gave a very strong preliminary performance better than any Miss USA this past decade!
5. VIETNAM – Wow, she ended the competition at a high level! I must say Miss Vietnam outperformed Miss Venezuela who came before her! She’s now a shoo in after this performance!


So there, now let’s narrow down this 30 incredible beauties to a TOP 15!

Absolutely the best....
Absolutely the best….

1. PUERTO RICO – She’s simply the best in her Canary yellow masterpiece!! No doubt!

Congratulations Puerto Rico!
