Miss Universe contestants have often set pulses racing and a recent appearance from the Japanese contestant Emiri Miyasaka caused quite a stir when her outfit for the show was recently revealed.
Donning striking pink garter belt stockings
, the 25-year-old appeared at a recent catwalk event in Tokyo with a short black kimono outfit, cut in such a way as to show off her distinctive legwear
as much as possible.
Pictures from AFP suggest that the outfit appears to have been based, at least loosely, on traditional Japanese fashions, with the costume also featuring a belt to complement the lacy legwear
However, while her appearance may have appealed to many hot-blooded male fans, Ms Miyasaka's rather revealing get-up came in for some criticism and it may now be toned down ahead of the Miss Universe event in the Bahamas which takes place later this month.
The 58th annual Miss Universe competition will be held on Paradise Island on August 23rd, featuring a variety of distinctive fashions from around the world.
