Miss Philippines Ariella Arida, who is a strong contender to win the title, had failed to impress in this round. The 24-year-old wore a Philippine traditional dress, terno, reportedly designed by Stella Araneta, the pageant director and organizer of Binibining Pilipinas.

Meanwhile, Miss USA Erin Brady opted for Transformers inspired national costume, reportedly designed by Martin Izquierdo, a costume designer at Victoria’s Secret.

Though it received mixed reactions, the 24-year-old took to Twitter to defend the outfit.

“Nothing screams national costume like the first Miss USA transformer. Embracing powerful women in a transforming country that’s made up of so much. That’s what Miss USA means to me,” Brady tweeted.
