We've gotta admit—the pixie haircut paired with a daring cropped top and wide leg pants look is so refreshing to see on the pageant stage. Kudos to Miss Vietnam for daring to be different!

1st Runner Up Tamaryn Green served an Ariana Grande-esque look with her long, high ponytail and sparkly strapless dress with an unusual silhouette. We love that she wore the subtlest jewelry too, which let the gown do the talking!

Francesca caught our eye in that long-sleeved, heavily embellished and crystal encrusted gown by designer ZHIVAGO. We love the fringes and the uneven neckline that made it such a stunning number!
