My favorite part of the Miss Universe pageant is when each beauty queen comes out in some outfit that is supposed to be reflective of their country’s history. Invariably, Miss America has to wear some kind of skankified Revolutionary War-era thing with giant stars and stripes and a hoopskirt, and Miss Sweden just gets stuck in a dirndl. Luckily, as a younger country, Australia can be a little more creative than traditional. And this is what they came up with. I had no idea that Uggs had such a rich cultural history!
