Miss Myanmar Htet Htet Htun won the best national costume award at the 65th Miss Universe competition on Monday at the SM Mall of Asia arena.

Htun brought her costume on stage – a big backdrop depicting the tourist attractions in Myanmar, the Shwedagon Pagoda and the Bagan temples.


Interviewed by host Steve Harvey, Htun admitted that her costume, which also served as a backdrop for traditional Myanmar puppetry, is heavy at 40 kilograms.

“My national costume represents princess figures of traditional puppetry,” Htun said.


“It seems heavy. I really want to put it down. It weighs approximately 40 kilograms,” she added.

Htun performed as the traditional Myanmar puppet in her costume, to the delight of the crowd. CBB
