Miss USA pageant officials face ire for posting racy pics of 2010 contestantsMay 10th, 2010 - 5:16 pm ICT by ANI
New York, May 10 (ANI): Overtly sexy pictures of Miss USA pageant contestants have ruffled quite a few feathers. Pageant officials are facing a lot of flak for posting these provocative pictures of participants.
According to The New York Daily News, the contestants, all around 20 years of age, have chucked away the traditional ball gown and tiara ensemble and have instead posed in provocative positions and attire, as reported by TMZ.com.
While Miss New York, Davina Reeves, holds shut her unbuttoned pin striped shirt but appears to be wearing nothing underneath, Miss New Jersey poses in nothing but a black lace bra, her nylon hose held up by garter belts.
“You can have brains and be smart and still be sexy,” a representative for Miss USA told TMZ.com.
Miss USA 2010 takes place in Las Vegas next weekend. It will air May 16 at 7 pm on NBC. (ANI)
