It’s that time of the year again, watching Miss Universe Pageants while stuffing our faces with ‘keropok’ and throwing our arms above our heads as we ask the universe how are they so darn hot?!
An exclusive Preliminary Evening Gown, National Costume and National Gift for the 65th Miss Universe Pageant were unveiled by the ever so beautiful reigning Miss Universe Malaysia 2016, Kiran Jassal.

The Petronas Twin Towers were an inspiration for designer Rizman Ruzaini when he was brainstorming for costume ideas. A silver jumpsuit, fully embellished with multi-coloured Swarovski diamonds, oooh lalaaa.
Both of the sleeves have been exaggerated to represent the Twin Towers and the diamond choker represents the sky bridge that connects the two towers, absolute genius. You could either love it or hate it.
