My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding Pageant Gowns: Miss Belgium Noemi Happart (left) at Miss Universe 2013 preliminaries and Miss Finland Meija Kerisalmi (right) at the Miss World 2013 Finals.
Continuing with my End-of-the-Year Lists...in my last post here on my NICKVERREOS.COM blog, I discussed my Top 30+ List of Best Beauty Pageant Gowns of 2013 so...it's now time for the "Uh Oh!/Ayy Mija" Worst Beauty Pageant Gowns of 2013. These dresses ended up here because
A) They were TACKY
B) Bad 80's/90's Prom-Meets-Quinceañera;
C) Questionable Taste Level;
D) Too cheap looking;
E) Too Much Flammable Polyester, and
F) Too Much Boobies and Too Much Sex-a-Licious Slit
Once again, I have divided it into different pageants (i.e. Miss Universe, Miss World, etc.) and I apologize if I missed some of your Top Worsts. So, here we go...
Señorita Colombia/Miss Universe Colombia 2013:
Muñoz--Miss Tolima received the lowest gown score of the night with this pink strapless dress. And I can see why: I have seen this dress hanging on a plastic mannequin in the Downtown LA Fashion District. In other words: been there/done that--and cheap! And that hair and those earrings...are we in 1992? Ayyyy Mija!
Miss Choco Yesuli Londoño Mosquera--One word: GURL! I have to give Miss Choco points for being so daring as to wear this ivory fringed and sequined Alfredo Barraza-designed gown that looked as if it was attacked by a trim store. On the other hand...she looked as if she was attacked by a trim store.

Miss Falcon Marie Claire Arcila: Gurl! Or as we say in Spanish Mija! This dress was TOO MUCHEY. It looked like a costume from "The Hunger Games" and one that may have been rejected. I appreciate all the work that probably went into this dress but it's just too costume-y and I haven't even begun to discuss those puffy 1980s "Dynasty"/Nolan Miller-like sleeves and shoulders. Even at the "Miss Venezuela pageant, they sometimes get it wrong...and tacky-licious.
Miss Universe 2013:
Folies Bergère show that got cancelled.
Miss World 2013:
Miss Belgium Noemi Happart: Noemi! What. Were. You. Thinking? This looks like something a girl from a tacky "My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding" TV show would wear. Pink. Satin, Cut-outs. Too short and too tight. Rippling seams. And that hair!
