    New Miss Universe Crown by D.I.C. Debuts at the 63rd Annual MISS UNIVERSE® Pageant

    Today 88 contestants from around the world revealed the new Miss Universe crown by pageant sponsor D.I.C. The creation of this new crown marks the beginning of a decade long relationship. D.I.C. will also make crowns for the next ten Miss USA and Miss Teen USA titleholders.

    The new crown was designed to blend the Czech roots of D.I.C. with the beautiful skyline of New York City, home of the Miss Universe Organization and its titleholders. Craftsmen spent over 3,000 hours to create this beautiful and timeless crown with a very unique infrastructure, inspired by design elements of various royal crowns throughout history. The crown symbolizes and expresses the beauty, stability, confidence and power of women around the world.

    The Crazy Couture of Miss Universe

    Yahoo.com -

    Is Miami the new Milan? It’s Miss Universe show time and the preliminary rounds are underway, with the most outrageous style—from glittery gowns to cultural kimonos to a Marie Antoinette-inspired, hockey goal gown adorned with a Stanley Cup tiara. Yes, the girls have gone wild, and Yahoo Style approves these over-the-top looks.

    For the costume portion of the preliminary show, contestants were asked to prepare an ensemble based on the theme of their home country. The result was shocking—fabulous, really. From Miss Ireland’s 17th century sexy armor to Miss Thailand’s ancient goddess look with accessories, we look at our favorite looks from last night’s dazzling show. We can only hope that Paris’ Couture shows this weekend look this good.
