Kazakh representative wore 30kg gold dress at Miss Universe 2018
A Miss Almaty 2017 title winner 19-year-old Sabina Azimbayeva represented Kazakhstan at the international beauty contest in Thailand.
She performed wearing a 30kg national costume trimmed with Swarovski crystals and huge wing tips in Bangkok, Sabina Azimbayeva shared on her Instagram page.
Following the idea of the designers, the costume depicts Kazakhstan, with the big sun decorated with arrows and wings symbolizing freedom.
