The most jaw-dropping segment of the Miss Universe competition occurred last night (no, we’re not talking about the swimwear round.)
The contestants in the 63rd annual competition took part in the National Costume show at Florida International University in Miami. .
The ladies wore an elaborate range of costumes spanning from the Buckingham Palace Queen’s Guard to the national tree of Venezuela.

But while there was no doubt that all of the contestants had gone to extreme lengths to stand out from the crowd, some of the outfits left the audience rather confused as to the link to the woman in question’s home country. One lady wore flags from across the entire world, not her own nation, while another appeared to be wearing just a simple ball gown. One contestant that left viewers in no doubt though, was Miss Canada, who came dressed as an ice hockey player, complete with working scoreboard.
