    In terms with that whole thing, if Ms. Woods was representing herself then it would be all fine and good, however, she was not. She was representing her country and that is where she crossed the line. Maybe now if she wants to she can feel very liberated to do. I am from Trinidad and no she should not have done. The other one done has a scandal to her name now she did that stupid shit. I hope the next one we send don't have a boo-boo too.

    Can you see anything in their bodies which you can't see in bikini? There are no ofensive stuff, so enjoy the art.

    I can understand how this is a form of art in photography, but feel it is inappropriate for Miss USA Pageant. I remember watching Miss USA as a child. It was beautiful, graceful and classy. I wouldn't let my daughter watch this now if they paid me to. But maybe this is marketing being implemented on purpose, to prevent children from watching??? The other question is, do these contestants have the option not to participate in this? What if someone felt very strongly about not posing topless, for the sake of art, for the sake of the show? Would this prevent them from getting far in the competition??

    Donald Trump ousts Carrie Prejean just a year ago for her photos and this year this Miss USA poses topless as an official part of another pagent. Sorry, I'm cynical. This doesn't have anything to do with either art or morality, it's just about ratings pure and simple.

    Miss Universe as a competition of "beauty and brains" is know for its class and elegance. There is no need to go through controversial activities just to retain its prestige. This pageant showcases beauty in its best sense and not to exploit young women who reprsents the bets of their very own countries. Yes nudity is embraced by some nations but as a whole majority still believe that this is not appropriate to MS UNIVERSE pageant. Leave this to other beauty contest/orgs or you might later lose your prestigious image as queen makers in its most wonderful meaning. Let us not abuse creativity and art....as our major basis every now and then as we try to exploit "beauty"! Please showcase beauty in a dignified manner....

    This definitely crosses the line. This is a Miss Universe pageant and whether we like it or not, the affair is being seen by people around the world with diverse beliefs, some liberated and others conservative. As a sacred annual event dedicated to epitomize womanhood, we should be on the conservative side. There is a saying, every big fire starts with a small spark. Do we extinguish this spark early for the future events or not? Now it is just a small innocent topless shoot, a spark, what next?

    i think there's nothing wrong with this kind of art.
    this pictures are awesome!it caught my interest to look for it because they did it well, and painted well.
    its once in a lifetime for those candidates to makes this pose!
    and REMEMBER:THEY ARE NOT FORCING EACH OF THE CANDIDATES TO PANT THERE BODY,it is still their own PREROGATIVE TO CHOOSE!
    AS LONG AS THEY WANT IT AND GO FOR IT!BUT IF NOT,SO DONT DO IT!!
