71st Miss Universe: Personalized capes instead of national gifts for auction

Image
The upcoming 71st Miss Universe edition in New Orleans, Louisiana, USA will not be holding a national gift auction and the contestants were informed not to bring a national gift. Instead, they need to customize their own cape for the swimsuit competition taking inspiration from anything that could be related to their cause or the country that they represent. The capes will be auctioned instead of national gifts and proceeds will benefit a charity that has yet to be announced. Contestants will each receive a blank cape from the Miss Universe Organization and they are instructed to bring the "custom art cape" and a copy of the "clearance agreement" to the Miss Universe host country. The 71st Miss Universe competition will be held on January 14 at the New Orleans Morial Convention Center.
