Diana Harkusha, Miss Ukraine Universe 2014, rocked this absolutely stunning red Zuhair Murad Fall/Winter 2014 couture evening gown at the Miss Universe 2014 pageant held in Miami, Florida, where Harkusha would place 2nd Runner-Up to the Miss Universe crown.
The rich red colors throughout the gown do absolute wonders for Diana's gorgeous complexion and facial features. The gown has a perfect combination of deep red accents set against a brighter red backdrop. The colors throughout the gown give the overall look texture and dimensionality. On stage, Diana truly radiated and stood out from the competition.
Zuhair Murad is known for his outstanding silhouettes, which seem to be flattering on almost every body type. This gown is no exception. The form fitting, boned bodice accentuates Diana's small upper torso, while cinching in her waist before shooting out into a voluminous skirt. Even though the train and skirt are quite extensive, the thigh-high slit gives the gown a sense of balance between Diana's slender frame and the overall magnitude of the gown. This aspect throughout the skirt allows for Diana to wear the dress rather than the other way around. This gown's silhouette brings in a different style from every angel. It is both classy and elegant, as well as mysterious and sexy. The Styling Wearing red lipstick on stage can be a risky move for many contestants. However, I absolutely love the way Diana's pop of color matches so perfectly with the exquisite color of the gown. If the lipstick had been just a slight shade darker or lighter, I don't think it would have complimented the gown and Diana's look so impeccably. Diana's sleek updo definitely adds to the regality of the gown and overall look. The style is oh so classy with just a hint of sexiness. Diana does an outstanding job balancing the two facets, creating an image of pure effortlessness.
This is by far my favorite evening gown I have seen to date. It is unique, dazzling, elegant, and sexy all wrapped up in one amazing gown.
