There's nothing more powerful than a woman comfortable in her own skin!

WIth the 69th Miss Universe evening gown preliminary competition seeing the 74 contestants strut their style and make their home countries proud, we've rounded up the looks that left us speechless with their fierceness and beauty.

Miss Universe Singapore 

Miss Universe Singapore Bernadette Belle Ong has been a consistent scene-stealer when it comes to her pageant outfits so far. With her national costume calling forth to Stop Asian Hate, her hot pink evening gown by Alejandro Fajardo is in and of itself a fashion statement.

One word comes to mind when seeing Cecilia Rossell's ensemble: mermaid chic. The shiny, shimmering, splendid Daniel Fabregas gown automatically made the queen a memorable sight.

Miss Universe Thailand

The 'Fireworks Embellished Two-Piece Gown' by Thailand's very own Valienter Atelier was a quick crowd favorite. Amanda Obdam’s fierce look and oozing confidence also undeniably brought the piece to life.

Miss Universe Philippines

Shining like the sun she is, Rabiya Mateo's Furne One-made buttery yellow perfectly finished off the red and white motif from former Miss Universe queens Pia Wurtzbach and Catriona Gray.

With her thick long locks in a rare half updo, Rabiya looked perfectly clean and polished in the ensemble.

Miss Universe Cameroon

Designed by Filipino designer Benj Leguiab IV, Miss Cameroon Angele Kossinda perfectly stole the runway with her shoulder-padded silver gown and floor-length sleeves that showed off her grace and dominance.

If you're curious about the uncanny details on Kimberly Jiménez's train, rumor has it that they're actually drawings by special children—an advocacy of the contestant.

Kimberly herself has yet to comment on the origins of the dress, so we'll have to wait and see for her explanation during the coronation night on May 17, 8 a.m. Philippine time.
