The dress was too heavy

Only 40 minutes into her reign as Miss Universe, Miss Puerto Rico Zuleyka Rivera Mendoza collapsed on stage while giving her post-pageant press conference.

Official reason(s) for her collapse?.....”She got dizzy. It’s very hot up here. Her dress is tight. Her dress was beaded and heavy”

I can go along with her being dizzy. It may have been hot up on the stage with all the lighting beaming down on her (Isn’t it hot in Puerto Rico?). She may even have been dizzy due to the fact her dress was too tight. But a heavy dress?

I don’t think so……not that dress

A more likely explanation would be that she probably had not eaten all day so she could fit into the tight dress in the first place. With the added hot lights and trying to balance on the high heels it was more than even a Miss Universe could be put through.

The world was assured that she was alright after The Donald soundly declared, ‘Yes, she’s fine.’

The dress was made of metal chains.

It was heavy, several kilos.

Glad she won.

It was her or Switzerland

So what...this chick's walking around in chainmail at a beauty pageant? Why can't anybody just tell the truth. She won, and she fainted. It happens. But come on....the dress was TOO HEAVY?? Gimme a break.

Can we put this under the category of "wardrobe malfunction"?
