The 2015 Miss Universe event will be held on December 20, 2015 in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - odd that the 2014 pageant was held on January 25, 2015 - which means that the 2014 winner only got to be Miss Universe for LESS than one year... slightly less than 11 months in fact.
And... because a reader cared enough to share that I actually had the wrong photo in for 2005, I spent over one hour searching for a photograph of Yukari Kazuya, Miss Japan 2005 in her National Costume. So... I am proud to state now... all of the costumes shown here are indeed representative of the Miss Universe Japan contestants!
If you give me a few days, I will try and get an image of the 2015 Miss Universe Japan National Costume that will be showcased later tonight.
|Considering what the other contestants were trotting out, this outfit is tame and unexciting. Also... can they pull her hair back anymore? Ridiculous colors, too. And yet, she still came in 10th place overall in the competition!|
|Why hide the body? Give us a side slit or two! It is, in my opinion, reminiscent of the 2006 contestant who actually won the event's Best National Costume. I do NOT think that the 2014 costume is as daring or as sexy as the 2006 version.|
|Came in 4th for Best National Costume award.|
|5th Runner-Up for best National Costume. It's my second-favorite.|
Here's the 2009 Miss Universe Japan National competition full-costume worn by Emiri Miyasaka:
|The Noh demon mask was an interesting touch, but hiding her pretty face was stupid.|
|Top 15 pageant finisher, but not for the costume, which was nice, actually.|
|Was Miss Universe 2007.|
|Won best National Costume at 2006 Miss Universe Pageant, and was 1st Runner-up Miss Universe. My favorite costume, too, obviously.|
|Was the 4th Runner-Up in the pageant, but not for the National costume.|
And that's all for now until the actual Miss Universe 2015 pageant declares a winner.
