Ayako Hara Miss Universe 2012 + Other Asian Contestants

Tomorrow is the Miss Universe 2012 compeition. This year Japan will be represented by Miss Ayako Hara. Behind the cut, I've collected pictures of Ayako from the preliminaries, in her national costume, with other delegates and official pictures from promoters and the MU site. Since the national costumes are a casual watcher favorite, I once again added the customs of other Asian delegates. As well as the opinion of Ines Ligron. She was the national director for Japan's own Miss Universe Japan until she later left.

Miss Universe will take place on December 19th, 2012 at 8pm ET, from Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino. And one of the finalist judges is the popular chef Masaharu Morimoto (Iron Chef, Iron Chef America). With 88 other girls to compete against, how will Japan do?

I'm loving China's national costume; the blue and white porcelain print, the Qing dynasty style headdress.

All clappers except for Philippines, Australia and maybe China.

Ines Ligron needs to come back to MUJ, Ayako is better than last years contestant, but still not the best among other girls who competed with her in MUJ, Ines knew how to groom her girls and her winners were always the best of the bunch.
