j-girls are a hit

Anne Watanabe was a contender for the Miss Japan 2004 title.

Last year's Miss Universe first runner-up was from Japan.

This year, Riyo Mori wins the big title.

In Gucci.

Not the best Gucci dress, but it's Gucci nonetheless.

On a side note, Miss USA Rachel Smith falls and gets booed by the crowd. Tsk, tsk.

The news channels have totally spinned this story.
She was booed during the final question portion of the show. She fell during the eveining gown portion of the show which proceded the final question.
When she fell the audience actually applauded her because of her quick recovery.
I think people were pissed that she(Miss USA) made top 5 and Miss Mexico (or Tanzania because the crowd liked her too) did not make top 5.

I think I watched like ten minutes of the competition. I didn't much care for little Miss Smith, but poor thing, it sucks to be booed. And Miss Universe winners wear Gucci? Okay, I'm actually kind of impressed.

Preetty humilating for Miss USA...all the news channels were replaying the fall repeatedly. I must have saw her trip up at least 20 times jeees. Although I'm surprised that Miss Japan wore Gucci, that's refreshing to hear.
