What in the world? Yes, this is Miss USA Erin Brady, wearing an impressive Optimus Prime Transformers costume. She’s competing in the Miss Universe 2013 pageant, and wearing a costume that represents her country. Why didn’t anyone tell her that Transformers are from Japan?
Her costume, created by Victoria’s Secret costume designer Martin Izquierdo, is a Transformer of all things. Brady looks like a strange version of Optimus Prime from the Michael Bay film series. Brady addressed the costume on her Instagram, writing, “Nothing screams national costume like the first Miss USA transformer. Embracing powerful women to a transforming country that’s made up of so much. That’s what Miss USA means to me.”
