Miss Mexico's pageant dress raises eyebrowsMiss Mexico's pageant dress raises eyebrows Miss Mexico will tone down the dress she wears to compete in the Miss Universe Pageant. The dress has caused outrage. The designers are headed back to the drawing board. KPBS Reporter Amy Isackson has more.
The floor length dress shows Catholic rebels hanging from posts. There’s a man facing a firing squad. The gown is adorned with a bullet studded belt. The scene is based on a bloody religious war between Catholic rebels and the Mexican government in the 1920s. The designers who selected the dress say it represents the nation’s culture and history.

The dress pays a horrible tribute to a side of Mexico that is stereotypical. They should rather have a Spanish male adorned with a Rosemary and the Mexican constitution slaughtering indigenous people, that would be the true story of Mexico and all of what is now known as ‘latin america.’
