The dress for Finland’s Lotta Hintsa was inspired by the Aurora Borealis and suitably has a lot of light blues and greens. The little bit of grid-patterned fabric that France’s Hinarani de Longeaux wore was in reference to the Eiffel Tower. And then there’s Brady bleeding red, white, and blue as a transformational robot. I mean, that’s what America is all about right?
