When it comes to Miss Universe costumes, it seems like Singapore and Malaysia are neck-to-neck in the race for the “worst-ever costume” crown.
Last year, Miss Universe Malaysia got everyone stunned like vegetable when she turned up in this spicy “nasi lemak gown” which showed off her erm, ample cucumbers?
Luckily for Samantha Katie James, the sambal was slapped at the top and not at the bottom, otherwise she’d belong in a period drama.
This year though, it seems like Singapore has (like always) tried to beat Malaysia at the game by coming up with this Trump-Kim Summit gown for Miss Universe Singapore.
Besides the reference to the summit held in Singapore, there’s also a giant billboard ad for Gardens by the Bay and Marina Bay Sands.
Maybe the designer, Mr Moe Kasim, should have just made the Singapore Flyer the main highlight if tourism advertising was top priority (since no one goes to that white elephant).
Already, the costume has been criticised by Singaporeans for “trying too hard” and not being a “reflection of Singapore culture”, and labelled as a “Singapore Tourism Board poster”.
Looks like our Miss Universe, Zahra Khanum, will need bigger balls than The Donald to pull off that gown.
Eh, but if she did have those gigantic jingle balls, she’d kena disqualified right?
