We can't help but love a big sparkly pageant, and Miss Universe always delivers. The show airs from Moscow on November 9 on NBC, but the contest already started with the National Costume competition a few days ago. These costumes are meant to tell a story about where the contestant is from, and while many were tributes to the country's cultural heritage ... some were a little out there. Like, way out there.
