Miss U.S. Virgin Islands 2010 Janeisha John receives help with her costume from Jennie Cote as she prepares for the Miss Universe National Costume event.

Miss Panama 2010 Anyoli Abrego prepares for the Miss Universe National Costume event.

Jurema Ferraz, Miss Angola 2010, touches up her make-up for the Miss Universe National Costume event.

Some may tune in for the Miss Universe swimsuit competition, but we're big fans of the National Costume portion of the show.

We think you can see why. Each lady gets to wear an over-the-top costume that somehow represents her country -- whether its the national animal, their beautiful scenery, chief export or what have you.

Miss Jamaica's butterfly get-up can't be easy to walk around in, but it sure does make a statement. And we do love hearing about the contestants explain their costumes.

Watch below for more. Miss Venezuela's mirrored outfit is really cool, but I'm not really sure what she's supposed to represent. Any ideas?

Miss Universe 2010 will air live on Monday, Aug. 23 at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT on NBC.
