|Miss USA -National Costume Competition at the 2013 Miss Universe Pageant in Moscow|
I'm literally speechless, so here's what a few fashion and beauty experts had to say about the costume.
“The Miss Universe National Costume contest is a tradition as old as Miss Universe itself. It is meant to showcase the culture of a nation to the entire world. That is why when Miss USA Erin Brady stepped out of the stage like an Optimus Prime from the Transformers, she effectively pushed the envelope way too much."
“Sure, we can have outrageous costumes sometimes but never had we seen such an irrelevant costume that does not represent American core values and culture."
“If anything, it symbolizes the excesses of American consumerism and its addiction to video games and technology. It is a travesty to the American sensibilities and to the Miss Universe tradition at its peak."[Source for Quotes]
