Miss Ukraine Universe organization, through their official social media, revealed the official National Costume that Angelina Usanova will be showcasing at the National Costume competition of Miss Universe 2023. The costume is titled ‘Mother Protector’, created to remind the international community about the events in Ukraine and the need for all states to respect international law and the principles enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations.

Angelina’s costume is Ukraine’s dedication to the great, sacred, and unconditional love of a mother and the defenselessness of children in the face of war. Children do not start wars, but they are the ones who are unable to defend themselves.



“Mothers all over Ukraine are begging and dreaming of a sky without missiles. They pray for the lives of their children, who are mercilessly taken away by the war. We dedicate our costume to all mothers of Ukraine who protect their children, refugee mothers, who raise kids without a husband who protects the country at this time, to mothers who lost their children - young or adult - in the war”, the organization wrote.

Talking about the costume, the blue fabric of the costume is a symbol of a peaceful, quiet sky without rockets while the white and milky colors are symbols of peace. The blue and yellow are the colors of the flag of Ukraine and the golden elements on the costume are the armour that symbolizes the strength of every Ukrainian mother who protects her children. Lastly, the body of a little angel is a symbol of the priceless life of every child.


For the costume, 30-35 meters of chiffon and organza fabrics were used and there is a print in the form of clouds and a blue sky is printed on top of the fabric. Moreover, some elements of the costume were developed and printed on a 3D printer and approximately 45,000 stones were used to decorate the costume.

Miss Universe 2023, the 72nd edition of Miss Universe, will be held in El Salvador on 18th November 2023 where Miss Universe 2022 R'Bonney Gabriel of USA will crown her successor at the end of the event finale.
