Japan Freaks Over Miss Universe Japan Pantsu



Emiri Miyasaka is Japan's representative at this year's Miss Universe competition, and she's been lighting her country on fire...but not the way she probably intended.

See, contenders from nations that actually have "national costumes," like Japan's kimono, generally wear them at some point in the competition, and Miyasaka isn't rocking that boat. However, her take on the kimono is a little different...the kimono ends after a short little ruffle of a skirt under the kimono, leaving her neon pink panties, garter belt, and thigh highs well displayed.



Many Japanese nationals think the design is super tacky, and more porn star like than classy. While I find the design sexy and innovative, in the context of Miss Universe I'm kind of forced to agree...although it's twice as hot when she puts on an oni mask. Rawr.

(It's not the first time a Japanese entrant has worn something a bit on over the top; a couple of years ago the Japanese rep was wearing a strange samurai getup, with armor, but no underclothes, and a sword. But at least that was kind of badass...)

This seriously does look tacky to me. Come on, gold polkadots? on a black kimono? and then making it too short? guh...

Then again, I'm not a huge expert in fashion, maybe I'm just horribly out of touch with what's "in".... and is it just me or does she seem more Latino than Japanese? Maybe it's the makeup...

It looks tacky, but not because of the shortness. I think it's the polkadots.

I'm aghast.

...Given her chosen kimono and general coloration: white would be OK because shiro pantsu are always acceptable, black would be the best choice all around -- and given the care in selecting what appears to be a custom kimono, she should have taken the extra step for custom lingerie:  Black stockings, a black garter belt with gold accents, and either matte black or shiny gold lame panties.  The fuschia below-the-waist ensemble above is just wrong

Oh My God I Can't Believe I Have An Opinion On This (past  Oooo Cute Chick in Pantsu.) and since when can I use "fuschia" correctly in a fashion post?  

I'm going to drink beer and look at porn for the next four hours.

That is just ugly. I'm sorry, but I think it is. It's not that it's too short or anything, I like short. It's just so ugly.

I didnt even notice the Kimono o___O

Wait.....what are we looking at?      lol

The color scheme... it blinds me so much... GUH COLOR ACCENTS NO.
JuniperMouseon Aug. 2, 2009 at 9:52 p.m.
lol. i can understand why her country might have a problem wit it. What category is this again, it probably won't do well. but its a superficial pageant with a swimsuit competition. And yeh the neon pink is tacky, she could have picked way better colors. Then again, I guess she wants to stand out, especially against Brazil.

Given the fact that I have a penis I know NOTHING on the topic of fashion so I can't really speak on wither the outfit she's wearing is "tacky" or "inappropriate." I can tell you this though: I have a penis and this this chick does nothing for Big-O (my penis' name) or I.
