10 Gowns from Miss Universe that made me go YAAAS!!!

The Miss Universe preliminary competitions have concluded, and soon we will discover which 12 delegates will advance to finals night! I personally LOVE the evening gown component of pageantry, because it offers young women the opportunity to show their sense of style, poise, and regalness. 

In no particular order, here are 10 queens in their evening gowns that made my pageant loving heart go YAAAAAS!  

Brazil

 The ornate jewels of the gown shined onstage, and made this queen look just that much more regal.

Mexico

 I know... high slit glittery dresses are to pageants as Tippy Tops are to LIFE.. BUT Miss Mexico and her features simply POP in this cool toned gown.

 The bottom of this gown was EVERYTHING on stage from the way it moved, to the way it caught the light.
