Under fire over underwear

WARDROBE MALFUNCTION PERHAPS: Robayo denied donning short dresses sans undies

Miss Universe contender Catalina Robayo reprimanded for going commando
SAO PAULO: As the world's most beautiful women are busy preparing for the Miss Universe pageant, controversy has erupted after a contestant was accused of getting her crotch out at official appearances.
Miss Colombia contestant Catalina Robayo raised eyebrows and the attention of pageant officials, after  reportedly donning short frocks without undergarments.
The fashion blunder earned the 22-year-old beauty a strong rebuke from officials who questioned her  inappropriate wardrobe choices during last week's events, FOXNews.com reported.

"Colombia had to be spoken to and told she needed to wear underpants as what she was doing was totally inappropriate," a source told the website.
"People have been pretty upset by it, there have been photos and media appearances where she has completely had her crotch out."
Miss Universe Organisation president Paula Shugart said she was floored when she heard the news from her team.
"There were several girls in short dresses which was a little concerning, but when I saw the (commando) picture
on the front page of one of the local papers, I was very, very surprised," she said.
"Our supervisors talked to all of the contestants about dressing appropriately, and one of our PR people spoke to her (Robayo) and she said she was wearing underwear. But regardless, it created quite a stir here for a few days."

Barely-there bikinis too sexy for TV

MISS Colombia's fashion blunder comes as the competition, to be held in Sao Paulo, Brazil, was rocked by another controversy after pageant officials had to return all the official swimsuit bikini bottoms by Catalina Brasil Swimwear because they were too revealing for network television.
"It looks like we have rectified the issue and the costumes were beautiful. Being by a Brazilian designer, they were definitely a lot smaller than we're used to or most of the contestants are used to," Miss Universe Organisation president Paula Shugart said.
"We delayed our shoot so we could add material to the bottom, otherwise we were going to have serious problems on television."
Scandal aside, the official photographs of the contestants straddle the line between sexy and sleazy, photographer Fadil Berisha explained. The pictures aim to be "not so prissy and not so clothed".
But Berisha insisted the shoots consider each of the contestants' culture and personal beliefs, saying nobody is forced to step outside their comfort zone.
"Here we are with Miss Universe, the most beautiful woman in the world, so we need a girl who looks like a fashion model. If she's smart, that's great, but at the end of the day people want to see a really pretty face."
