If you thought you didn’t need to know anything about the 2013 Miss Universe competition, you were wrong. The two things you need to know are as follows: 1. the National Costume Competition can get pretty ridiculous; and, 2. Miss USA proved point #1 by dressing up as a gigantic beauty queen transformer that would make Michael Bay proud.
We wish we were joking but apparently this is what the Miss USA team thinks represents American culture (and they’re not all that wrong, really):
Here’s what Erin Brady, Miss USA herself, had to say about the outfit on Instagram:
“A close up of my national costume. :) Thank you to Martin for all of his time and hardwork. He is a mastermind. #missuniverse #usa #transformer”
“Nothing screams national costume like the first Miss USA transformer. Embracing powerful women in a transforming country that’s made up of so much. That’s what Miss USA means to me. #missuniverse #power #strong #women”
See if Miss USA busts out the Michael Bay live when the 62nd Miss Universe competition airs tonight from Moscow at 9pm EST!
