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?
