Along these lines, they also blame her country’s organization for not protecting the imposing typical costume that the queen had to wear, who finally had to go out on the catwalk with an “emergency” one.
Who is Miss Chile?
The full name of the maximum from Chile is Sofía Nieves Depassier Sepúlveda, she is 24 years old and is 1.74 meters tall.

However, the followers of the beauty queen expressed their concern on social networks, when it was leaked that Miss Chile would not wear the design prepared by Eduardo Ignacio Cerda on the catwalk of the typical costume (national costume), inspired by the Gaviota de Viña del Mar. Keno Manzur, national director of the Chilean franchise for Miss Universe, confirmed that, being made of precious stones, it broke during the transfer to New Orleans (United States) when a suitcase was placed on top of it.

Miss Universe Chile, Sofia Depassier, resorted to an ’emergency’ outfit that represented the Atacama desert. However, her headdress turned out to be somewhat large and the crescent-shaped ornament covered her eyes.
However, for her followers, the great disappointment in the Miss Universe preliminaries turned out to be the gala dress that Miss Chile wore. A closed black dress with long sleeves, which was not fitted despite being tight. It was the creation of the designer Miguel Ángel Masjuan, who is in charge of the costumes for the contestants of the reality show “Mira quién baila” from Univisión.
“Why lie to us, we know that what they did to her was evil”, “They buried her in that dress. Instead of helping her, they hurt her”, “The fabric looked heavy, the shapeless cylindrical design and an uncomfortable length”, “The horrible black dress and the hairstyle made her look very old”, were some comments on Instagram and Twitter.

A noteworthy fact is that the Organization of Miss Universe Chile has chosen on several occasions to dress its Miss Universe candidates very conservatively, as happened with Uranía Haltenhof (Miss Universe Chile 1990), María Jesús Matthei (Miss Universe Chile 2013 ) and Daniela Nicolás (miss Universe Chile 2020).
