Miss Universe 2011 National Costumes

The national costume contest is arguably the most colorful part of the Miss Universe pageant. This annual parade of sartorial ridiculousness is the most amusing to watch too. And how can we leave out something like that from Amusing Planet?

This year at the 60th anniversary of the Miss Universe pageant, 89 contestants from as many countries are presently fighting out with each other for the coveted crown, in Sao Paulo, Brazil. I have heard that this is highest number of participants ever, surpassing the previous record of 86 contestants in 2006.

Because there are so many pictures, this will be a thumbnail gallery. Click on the thumbnails to enlarge. And when you are done with this gallery, don’t forget to checkout the previous year’s national costumes contest.
