Dayana Mendoza once posed nude for photos wearing only jewelry at 15. She was Miss Universe 2008 and she kept her crown. The pics were “nothing salacious” and beautiful, according to president of the Miss Universe Organization, Paula Shugart.
And while Donald Trump and Miss Universe will always have the Carrie Prejean pageant scandal, it appears they don't want to count on any personal scandal to emerge for the next round.
The officials have allowed their beauty queens to pose nude for a bit of excitement for the beauty pageant.
They have strategic coverage for the sexy pictures. The Huffington Post reveals they "even used body paint like the Playboy Bunnies!"
Earlier the Miss USA contest put some of the ladies in lingerie for photos that splashed online to controversy, as several of the contestants stripped to lingerie to show off their curves and beauty.
That now seems to be the strategy for contest as it tries for attention and buzz surrounding the beauty queen contestants in a tough market of reality TV shows. Huff Po has photos and video of the girls in body paint.
Is it a good way to promote the contest?
