Miss Universe 2016 Iris Mitternaere of France was a vision in red as she relinquished her crown to the new winner last night in Las Vegas.
She had her final walk as Miss Universe wearing a scarlet red ombré couture gown in full Swarovski crystals by the very talented Michael Cinco who also made the gown worn by Pia Wurtzbach when she crowned Iris in Manila earlier this year.
I am hoping that we’d see our delegates sashaying a Michael Cinco gown during the evening gown competition of this* pageant soon? For Catriona next year, perhaps?
* Michael Cinco provided the evening gowns for Sandra Seifert (Miss Earth 2009), Queenierich Rehman (Miss World 2012) and Valerie Weigmann (Miss World 2014) during their international pageant assignments.
This is almost the same as Pia’s blue gown! One of the most stunning Miss Universes ever! Vive La France!
