Costume Fab: Contestants in the "Miss International 2016" Beauty Pageant, during their National Costume Presentation in Tokyo Japan
The 56th Annual Miss International Beauty Pageant--considered one of the four most important "Grand Slam International Pageants"--besides "Miss Universe", "Miss World" and "Miss Earth". There are 70 contestants competing in the pageant, which will culminate in the Coronation Finals Night on October 27th in Tokyo Japan...

The contestants have arrived and are attending some pre-contest activities. Tuesday were the Miss International 2016 National Costumes Presentation as part of an opening press preview. As usual, there were lots of sequins, feathers, Pre-Columbian Goddesses as well as "Traditional" and Folkloric costumes on display. Here are some of my Top 15 Faves:
Francis Libiran, known for his wedding dresses and outfitting many pageant gals, including the gown worn by Catriona Gray when she was crowned "Miss World Philippines" last week.
Boris Johnson (former Mayor of London) but hey, maybe next year! I still think this is Super Gay Parade Fab.
Let me know what you guys think and if I somehow missed some of YOUR "Miss International 2016" National Costume favorites...Leave your comments below!
