There are only a few days to go before the preliminaries of Miss Universe 2019 beauty pageant. Since this kinda late picks for me to discuss, at least, it is never to be late for me to discuss my post-arrival favorites after all the candidates are already in Atlanta, Georgia. Anyhow, there are some ladies who became disappointments and others who made surprises when they arrived in the United States to showcase their overall packages.

Miss Universe is definitely the most anticipated beauty pageant in the entire universe. Most pageant fans are now following their favorite candidates from all over the world to vie for the Mouawad crown, which is now the new term from the former Mikimoto crown handler. The main reason is the new jewelry handler who will now create another crown for the new queen for this edition of Miss Universe. The Lebanese Company, Mouawad Jewelry will now create another design for the new ambassadress of beauty who will succeed Catriona Gray to reign the universe.
