Showing off her national costume for the upcoming Miss Universe pageant on Aug. 23, Miss USA Rima Fakih says her sexy gold eagle inspired costume is for none other than President Obama!
Miss USA Rima Fakih has already picked out her sexy costume for the Aug. 23 Miss Universe competition, and she says it is in honor of President Obama. Rima said of her revealing gold bustier/eagle costume, “The symbolism of this costume is a tribute to [Obama's] work to bring peace to the world …the amazing costume I will wear during the Miss Universe pageant represents the celebration of life, liberty and all that is American.”
Rima, a practicing Muslim, has recently been in the press for the comments she made about the controversial Ground Zero mosque, acknowledging the need for freedom of religion but also pointing out the mosque should not be so near the site of the national tragedy.
Should 24-year-old Rima win the pageant on Aug. 23, she would be the first Muslim to do so.
