Miss Universe Australia is feeling the heat at the beauty pageant after being told that her evening gown and bikini are offensive and revealing. The 21-year-old contestant Scherri-Lee Biggs was told that her satin evening gown was offensively “see-through” and her bikini way too sexy, Daily Telegraph reported.
Along with being instructed to cover up, Biggs has also been ordered to make her bikini bottoms larger to ensure it holds everything in place while catwalking on the ramp. Ranked third in the US betting market at 14/1, Biggs is not the only contestant who is facing the music.
The judges have already warned three other contestants over risque photographs. Scherri-Lee Biggs is a South African born model, beauty queen and pageant titleholder from Watermans Bay, Perth, Australia. Biggs, who is competing against 88 other women for the Miss Universe crown in Sao Paulo, Brazil is considered to be one of the favourites.

This year’s Miss Universe pageant got its share of controversy –courtesy Miss Colombia Catalina Robayo, who decided to go commando while promoting the pageant.
Miss Colombia Catalina Robayo was wearing a short orange dress which failed to cover up her privates. It seems the contestants are finding it extremely difficult to score points with judges through conventional route.
These pictures were published by a local newspaper in Sau Paulo which took photos of the event – and the crotch shot photo was reportedly on the front paper of the newspaper. Roboyo had on a short bright coral dress and was sitting down – and didn’t have her legs crossed like she should have.
The Miss Universe officials have expressed their displeasure and discomfort with these pictures. According to highly placed sources in the pageant, “Colombia had to be spoken to and told she needed to wear underpants as what she was doing was totally inappropriate.” The Source further added, “People have been pretty upset by it; there have been photos and media appearances where she has completely had her crotch out.”
While reacting to the incident President of the Miss Universe Organization, Paula Shugart said, “There were several girls in short dresses which is was a little concerning, but when I saw the (commando) picture on the front page of one of the local papers and was very, very surprised,” Shugart said. “Our supervisors talked to all of the contestants about dressing appropriately, and one of our PR people spoke to her (Robayo) and apparently she said she was wearing underwear. But regardless, it created quite a stir here for a few days.”
India is represented by Vasuki in this year’s Miss Universe pageant and we hope she has not been going commando while participating in this prestigious event.
