    dont mean to be unkind but the pictures of these girls are awful. im sure they look a lot better in the flesh but the standard of the uk entries is way below average for a contest of this calibre. Its a very high standard of competition and sorry but not one of these contestants makes the grade visually. Nice intelligent girls they may be but its a 'beauty pageant' and although judging people on looks is shallow its a cut throat industry where how you look is how you are ulitmately judged just take a look at past winners of miss Universe..and you will see my point

    I agree, the pictures here are really REALLY bad, but actually I know a few of these girls and they are actually stunning! Several were Miss England finalists who did very well and are probably the ones to watch out for, including Rosanna Carr Taylor, Jodi Edwards, Melissa Halman and Nicola Oxlade. The photos look like they've dragged them out of bed with no make-up on though! VERY bad photography!

    I agree with the last two comments the pictures are just AWFUL. I no Lisa Lazarus and she is much prettier in real life but the picture of her on here makes her look 40! VIBE the organisers of the competition are the same company that run the Miss Wales competition and looking at the finalists on the Miss Wales website it seems Vibe have used the same photographer as the pictures of the girls are simply awful and the pics on their modelling website vibemodels are just as bad. Sorry Vibe but you are not doing the girls any justice with these pictures, time to sack the photographer. Miss Englands website has great photos of their girls and when you click on the pics most of them have some more shots of the contestant and tell you a bit about them so its easier to base your vote on looks and personality.

    None of them stands out. UK will be a clapper this year at Miss Universe Pageant handsdown.

    putting bad photography aside, out of these 40+ girls there are onli 2 or 3 who have any potential. I mean i know for sure that UK WILL NOT crack the semi finals in Vietnam this year. They need to pull out a ridiculously stunning girl and prepare and train her well next year if they have any choice of promoting their company. anywayz i will still be rooting for whoever wins dis year as it is my home country xxxxx

    How sad - Miss Scotland, Wales, England were almost always gorgeous during the 1960's, 70's and early 1980's, and each competed at Miss Universe and England was also in the Top 15. These girls are terrible!

    Who did the photography or the makeup? I don't know which is to blame but you would hope the girls look better without slap.
    I could find a number of women around town better than these, and twice thier age.
    They are just bad.

    guys i actaully was a contestant but pulled out. My pic looks awful, they zoomed in on a full length instead of just using a proper pic of my face, even i thought it looked weird- didnt do anything for me and i know i dont look that bad lol

    Previous poster Im sure you honestly look fantastic and what a shame you had to pull out of the competition. Yeah these pics are terrible and not exactly good promotional publicity for a competition like Miss Universe, hopefully the organisers will change the way the pics are taken and displayed ready for next year's competition as i'm sure they must be equally as disappointed with them as the girls. Checked out pictures of the winner and they prove that as she is soooooo much nicer. One thing I am a little surprised at is that on the winners myspace page it lists her experience and work as modelling (and she looks great doing it) but also it says she was a 'Honey Trapper' for Swansea Investigations. Nothing wrong with that at all but not sure its the sort of 'previous experience'you would expect a possible Miss Universe to have! Set that aside Good luck to you Lisa and enjoy the whole Miss Universe experience in Vietnam.

    Well I think its disgusting you people judging everyone by photos, its not down to you at the end of the day its the judges. I d like to see what youd look like I doubt it youd be as pretty as half of these girls !!! You probably wouldnt even make the semi finals!!!
