Missed out on watching the Miss Universe Preliminaries before the final night? We rounded up the best evening gown looks for you (and some affordable looks to shop on Queenly too)!

Indonesia - Ayu Maulida

I’m a sucker for green, because not everyday do you see it. But with AyuMa, she made sure the whole Universe did. She literally was shining dripping in lush green.

Emerald green is a great choice, with some green pageant dress inspiration listed for sale here:

Philippines - Rabiya Mateo

Again, with yellow, you have to be just right to execute it and Rabiya was no exception to the phrase “just right”. She was perfect. She looked eloquent. She looked as if the moment was hers and hers only, and she knew it. The hair complimented it all!!

Strut across the stage for your own pageant evening gown section in these yellow choices:

Curaçao - Chantal Wiertz

Not just the gown and styling stood out, but her confidence and elegance conquered it. Chantal is already tall, but this elevated her even further as someone very ready to become Miss Universe.

Panama - Carmen Jaramillo

Carmen looked 8 feet tall in case she actually isn’t. Yellow is my favourite colour to see because it’s one of the hardest to pull—yet she did it. She looked fierce and regal, all while having fun.

Japan - Aisha Harumi Tochigi

It was fun, she looked like she had fun, Aisha was GLOWING through and through and like green accentuated her mood and aura. It was a bold choice, and often lime green is hit or miss, but this was a HIT and her presentation was excellent.

Nepal - Anshika Sharma

The detail on her dress was exquisite! Lebanese designer Giannina Azar custom designed this fully beaded gown. She was styled well for this one, with her pulled back bun hairstyle complementing the high neck collar and neckline pattern.

Bahamas - Shauntae-Ashleigh Miller

Very often contestants play it safe during prelims with neutral gold or silver color schemes for their gowns, so seeing Shauntae have a bold yellow-orange gown was a breath of fresh air.

India - Adline Castelino

Adline made her home country proud with an evening gown made by Indian fashion designer Falguni Shane Peacock. This dress has a high middle slit and tiny rhinestone work that really accentuates her figure.

South Africa - Natasha Joubert

Natasha looked like a doll in what she called “the dress of her dreams” in a Jolache Couture dress, designer in her native South Africa. The velvet gloves and drapery was complemented by a high thigh cut and elegant stone detail, giving a modern twist to a classic hollywood glamour look.

USA - Asya Branch

Asya had a gorgeous presentation in her evening gown. Her elegant bun hairstyle combined with a caped one shoulder silhouette gave her a regal appearance.

Canada - Nova Stevens

The detail on her gown is incredible! Made by Colombian designer Virgilio Madinah, this gown featured a jagged rainbow stone neckline with an ombre transition into a light pink sheer bottom. There is so much to look at!

These sleek silver pageant looks are inspired by Nova's gorgeous performance:
