In another screenshot of messages sent to national directors, the Miss Universe Organization dispels rumor that the delegates are not required to bring a national costume.
Also, they sent the directors an addendum that the National Costume Show will be held right after the Preliminary competition.
This is similar to when Miss Universe 2016 was held in Manila, Philippines. After the preliminary competition, the candidates paraded on stage in their national costumes.
An Instagram user with handle @b_adhitt asked Paula Shugart in her Instagram to “not remove National Costume session”.
Shugart replied, “who says no NATIONAL Costume.” 👑
