I LOVE Japan's national costume. It's sooo pretty.

I Like Korea's one too but it reminds me too much of the Japanese's costume two years ago.

Guest i.said.hi

I found this while searching the net.

I'm korean myself, but when I first saw Ms. Korea.. i felt a VERY PLASTIC SURGERY vibe.

BUT, i got curious to how she looked 'before' and what I found were shocking...

These are pictures right after HS. And I have to say, she looks the same.

I'm not saying she did/didn't get surgery, but I had thought that she would look completely different, but I guess not...

2001- fresh out of HS

I do notice some some difference in her, but she's mostly the same.. i guess.

-------------------

When I first saw her, I got this real arrogance vibe from her.

And i really thought "this year Miss Korea really sucks"

But then, seeing her in runways, fashion shows, and other events.. I'm starting to like her.

Even though she has this arrogant vibe, her pose is very.. good.

And she has an s-line too, not a pin thick asian (sorry, i don't mean to offend).

I'm actually looking forward to this year!

^^I don't think Miss Korea got any plastic surgery, but I am quite disappointed with

this year's Miss Korea when compared to last year's Miss Korea.

Miss Korea's national costume does look like Miss Japan's national costume from two years

ago, especially with the Warrior theme, but it's still pretty.

Miss USA is very pretty this year. I'm rooting for her to win.

I wish they would stop making Vietnam make such traditional poses. In the welcome dinner photos, what is she holding? A FLOWER? Omgawd..... I think they want her to have the traditional 'dieu dang' look if you know what I mean, like those girls who are very disciplined, quiet, with a lot of etiquette kinda thing. I don't think that expresses independence at all, more like CONTROLLED.

well wearing one ao dai is okay but she seems to keep wearing them ... and also i think with mIss universe you have to be fashionable and modern ( that's what i read from a viet news thing ) that's why riyo mori won last year!!! she was not the prettiest but from the news it said she is fashion forward!

I guess what I like about Miss Vietnam is she's unique her looks

THE NEW MISS UNIVERSE CROWN UNVEILED

CAO Fine Jewelry Will Create This Year's Coveted Miss Universe Crown

85939816yx8.jpg

Friday June 20, 10:21 am ET

World Renowned Vietnamese Brand PNJ to Unveil Unique Crown for the 2008 Miss Universe Competition

NEW YORK, June 20 /PRNewswire/ -- The Miss Universe Organization announced today that CAO Fine Jewelry (a line of the renowned Phu Nhuan Jewelry (PNJ) company in Vietnam) has created the coveted 2008 Miss Universe crown. The winner of the 2008 Miss Universe Pageant, which will broadcast live on NBC July 13th from the Crown Convention Center in Nha Trang, Vietnam, will be crowned with the masterpiece which was designed by Rosalina Tran Lydster of Jewelry by Rosalina and Ms. Dang Thi Kim Lien of CAO Fine Jewelry.

The crown, valued at $120 thousand dollars, is made of 18K white and yellow gold. It is comprised of over 1,000 precious stones; including 555 white diamonds (30 carats), 375 cognac diamonds (14 carats), 10 smoky quartz crystals (20 carats) and 19 morganite gemstones (60 carats). The colors of the jewels chosen for the crown have great significance. The yellow luster of the gold represents the prosperous thriving economy in Vietnam. White, light pink and cognac are the main hues in the crown which represent inspiration and feeling.

Each piece of the crown was designed to represent an important attribute of the Miss Universe Pageant. The curves of inlaid precious stones represent the strong development and potential of each country. The image of the crane (Lac Bird) symbolizes Vietnamese spirit and culture. The image of the heart represents unified breath, rhythm and vision, which are powerful internal forces that stress faith, hope and unity.

"The Miss Universe crown is one of the most revered pieces of jewelry in the world," said Paula M. Shugart, President of the Miss Universe Organization. "We are very excited to have partnered with CAO Fine Jewelry and Jewelry by Rosalina to create this year's crown."

"The curved design creates a natural rhythm and a stable structure for the crown, symbolizing the spirit of unity. The crown combines the beauty and the character of each nation, accomplishing the goal of the pageant, which is international unity," explained designers Ms. Kim Lien and Rosalina Lydster.

Contestants from more than 80 countries will be judged in three categories: swimsuit, evening gown and interview as they vie for the title of Miss Universe 2008 and the opportunity to wear the crown. The winner will receive a tiara by CAO Fine Jewelry valued at $30 thousand dollars.

The MISS UNIVERSE®, MISS USA® and MISS TEEN USA® Pageants are a Donald J. Trump and NBC Universal joint venture. Utilizing its nationwide grass roots infrastructure, the Miss Universe Organization is committed to increasing HIV/AIDS awareness by focusing on women's health and reproductive issues. By forging relationships with organizations committed to research and education such as the Latino Commission on AIDS, God's Love We Deliver, APICHA and Gay Men's Health Crisis, Miss Universe is armed to impact women today.

So I found more pics....
