The girl with the controversial national costume: Miss Universe Japan 2009 contestant (Emiri Miyasaka)

During the Miss Universe 2009 pageant, Miss Universe Japan shocked the world as she wore a racy Kimono costume that's composed of leather and hot pink lingerie. Despite having created by famous French designer Ines Ligron and Japan's Yoshiyuki Ogata, horrified fans commented the outfit as "inappropriate, crass, sleazy and something a prostitute might wear".
