She also wore a snakeskin bikini during the swimsuit portion of the competition.The colors of Miss South Africa's winning dress have a special meaning.Tunzi, winner of the overall Miss Universe 2019 competition, said that the colors of her evening-wear gown held a very special meaning.In her voiceover, she said that the brown represented the ground at home and the blue represented the ocean. She said that by wearing the dress she felt like South Africa was on the stage with her.Miss Laos' costume had a sign hidden in it.Miss Loas Vichitta Phonevilay made a statement on the runway by walking inside of an elephant puppet.But the ornate costume wasn't the only thing that made a statement during her presentation.In a quick moment, she also opened up the side of the animal structure to reveal a sign that read, "Stop Fire Save Amazon."Miss Philippines' sash fell during the evening-wear intro.Before the evening-wear competition on Sunday night, contestants went on stage to dance with musician Ally Brooke.During the walking portion of the musical number, Ganados had a slight mishap, as her sash fell from her shoulders and hung around her arms.Miss Philippines handled it gracefully and continued to smile and walk through it.Miss Tanzania was actually barefoot during the costume competition.During the competition, Miss Tanzania Shubila Stanton, a 23-year-old climate change champion, rocked a detailed ensemble complete with three-dimensional wooden figures.The ornate gown looked almost like armor but Stanton kept her footwear simple. Instead of wearing a pair of heels like other contestants, she opted to go barefoot.Miss Universe 2018 misspoke during her farewell speech.During her farewell interview with Steve Harvey, Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray misspoke.Her advice to the remaining finalists was to remember why they were there and who they were representing. But instead of telling them to "hold their head high," she told them to "hold their hair high."Fortunately, she quickly recovered.The gold accessory Miss Universe 2018 wore during her final walk has a special meaning and significance.During her final walk as Miss Universe, Gray wore a gold cuff that she said she designed herself.She later pointed out the piece on Instagram, writing that it was a nod to her country, the Philippines, and a follow-up to the sparkling earcuffs she wore when she competed in Miss Universe last year."Throughout my journey I've always wanted to carry a piece of my country. After designing my earcuff, it came time for the final piece," she wrote.Read More:The 27 wildest national costumes from the 2019 Miss Universe pageantPeople thought Steve Harvey said the wrong name when announcing the winner of Miss Universe's national costume contest, but it turns out he was rightSteve Harvey's cartel joke at Miss Universe 2019 is not going over well
