Dear Babe,

Which evening gown did you like the most in the Miss Universe Pageant last night?

Dress Indecisive

Dear Indecisive,

I liked the cut of Miss Kosovo’s gown but it was a bit over done, I think the wide sparkly waist overpowered the rest of the dress. Her hair, however, was magnificent. It looked as though Audrey Hepburn and Marge Simpson had a hair baby.


The dress I truly loved was Miss Switzerland’s. It was young and fresh and it flowed like only a gown can. She looked glamorous and not the least bit confined. The color was amazing. Her hair was also beautiful, a modern take on Bridgette Bardot’s.


Thanks for asking!
