Ten Miss Universe 2011 National Costume Entries, Presented Without Comment

The universe has voted, and last night we chose Leila Lopes, Miss Angola, as this year's Miss Universe. Lopes will represent the totality of everything that exists, including space, time, energy, matter, planets, billions and billions of stars, galaxies, intergalactic space, and beyond. While we wait for word on whether Lopes's reign will include black holes, we can look at entries from the national costume portion of the competition:
