[> [> [> [> Subject: MU Critic's click-in is most illuminating. I had known about Mona G. but not the others. For Miss America, I've heard rumors it was fixed for Shawntel Smith & Kate Shindle. Getting back to MU Critic's click in, I'd like to know more about Oxana's preliminary gown & the Gucci she wore for finals.

I forgot to mention, when Oxana won Miss Russia 2001, she didn't look nearly as flawless as she did in 2002. Although she claims her deferral to compete in 2002 was due to her wanting to complete her studies, I think she needed time to get cosmetic enahancement work done (nose job, fillers, etc.). She may have also been tipped off that the 2001 crown was reserved for Denise because there is no way even Oxana was going to win MU 2001.

Oxana Winning Miss Russia 2001


Oxana's Prelim Gown (Outdated looking and too short yet this was the only competition gown she brought to PR)


Despite her "premonition" of winning and not wanting it to come true, Oxana ironically asked a friend in Moscow to purchase and send her a more modern gown she remembered seeing in the Gucci storefront window in Moscow. The gown was the wedding dress from the 2002 Spring/Summer Ready-To-Wear Collection.

The final night gown was polarizing among pageant fans because it was quite nouveau and unorthodox for the pageant stage. However, the gown was definitely more modern than her prelim dress and it flowed nicely allowing for a more impactful runway presentation. Against the backdrop of the stage, Oxana looked like a Greek goddess in it.
