At this year’s Miss Universe pageant Miss USA 2009 Kristen Dalton wore a NASCAR-themed outfit as her “national costume”.
I didn’t watch the show as I have decided in my adulthood that I don’t have the same interest level in pageants as I did when I was kid. I guess it’s because I know that they don’t really mean anything, no offense to pageant girls out there, but it’s really a platform to achieve other goals like become an actress or get a record deal. They should just make the shows about that and skip the whole walking around in bikinis part ’cause they do the same thing at the Hooters hotel in Vegas like every weekend. So what’s the difference?
But whatever, what really sealed the deal was the fact that fame whore Heidi Montag was set to perform at this year’s event. Oops, did I say perform? I meant she was set to dance horribly and not even know how to lip-sync the words to her own song. There was no way I was going to watch that.
Anywhooooo… I found out about Miss USA’s outfit and felt it my duty to post the pictures of her modeling it for a photo opp. with NASCAR representatives. I think it’s a cute outfit. The helmet was designed by Sam Bass, the official artist of NASCAR.
I think I would have liked the outfit more if they had kept it more in line with a firesuit and tweaked it to be tight like a catsuit. What do you think?
