Miss Universe 2006

I watched the pageant last night , I was so excited to see Kayne and Roberts dress, it was so beautiful, I was so proud , that two of my new friends were up there showcasing their beautiful workmanship, and Tara looked so confident up there. I do not watch many pageants but I had to support them all, my new friends.
I also adored ms Puerto Rico she was so beautiful, and miss Japan I love that we speak the same languages, what an amazing night! I did not see Kayne or Robert there did any of you? What an amazing experience that must have been for them. It is the beginning of a new chapter a new week, its time to let go of the sadness of last week and get ready for great things to come, I hope you all had an amazing weekend.

She did look sweet and Kayne and Robert must be so proud.. I think your gown will be lovely at something such as a starlight party at a palazzo. Theirs had the glitz and glitter feel that had a definite paegentry feel yours is beyond that into sublime. I hope you realize this style fully so we can see it outside of PR finished as you imagined it :)

I was also very happy for Kayne especially, when he won, I like him very much. We are also from the same area. I didn't see the pageant, but if it repeats, I'll be sure to watch for Kayne and Robert.

Thank you for your response to my message and your decision to no longer include animal skins!

PS Remember that winning a TV show doesn't prove you as a designer, or how good you are as one. I disagreed last season. It IS a TV show after all, lol. Ratings. Someone who contributed nothing, might as well have gone out there with an invisible dress and still be in the game! The idea is very silly.. Did they not have any idea what when on behind the scenes?

I actually love your pageant dress, I thought it was a beautiful color and the top part very different, that would be something I would wear. If only it were finished and someone would ask me whose dress I'm wearing, I would be quick to say Malan Breton!

Hope you are having a great week, as well.

much love,

I love that you can be so kind and supportive even though this is the dress that won in the same contest that sent you home. Most of us would most likely (alright, almost definitely) harbor some illogical resentment.

Not against Kayne and Robert, and not against the dress, and certainly not against Tara, but just in general. Just enough to prevent you from being so generous with your praise and so genuinely happy for your fellow designers. But you don't feel any such resentment. And even if you secretly do hang onto a small knot of discontent, you hide it well and do not act upon it; opting instead to be a gentlemen and a true friend. Bless your heart.

You are an inspiration and a role model for all ages. I hope to learn from your actions and your kind words and hope that I may be as benevolent and caring when dealing with people and events in my own life. Thank you.

You are so great, not saying "Oh, my dress would have looked better." like someother ppl would. I agree that its time to move on.

I agree - The dress that Kayne and Robert created really was beautiful. It framed Tara perfectly!

As a "pageant girl," I admire those who even attempt to make a pageant gown. I've found that a pageant gown is a very "functional" garment - it can't just be beautiful, it has to be a color that won't be repetitive in competition, a cut that makes the lady look gorgeous, and it has to be seen from the third balcony (i.e. eye popping colors and shapes).

That being said, I think that you (Malan) have a great potential market in the pageant world. If I'm ever Miss USA, I may just look you up!

Hi Malan! I don’t watch beauty pageants often, but after seeing your show I felt the urge to see the winning dress. Although the dress made by Kayne was very impressive, I can’t help but wish that you designed the winning dress. You were my number one choice, and were very disappointed of your departure.

I believe that Angela should’ve been the one who was let go! She didn’t display teamwork, compassion, understanding, and most importantly creativity. For goodness sake… she doesn’t even know how to create and draw gowns. Angela doesn’t deserve to be on the show.

Anyways…. on a positive note… I believe in your abilities as a designer! I saw the pre season show, and thought that you had such a great story to tell. Your eyes said so many things, which I’m so glad they portrayed you so honestly. You were very authentic in your actions and words.

You probably have tons of e-mails like this, but I can honestly say that my heart goes out to you. When you left last week, my heart was broken. I would have liked to see you more, and know more about Malan. I’m confident that this experience will make you stronger as a person and designer.

My husband and I recently moved from New York City to Charlotte, North Carolina. Knowing that you live in New York makes me want to come back. I hope that someday we could meet and be friends.

This is the first time I’m writing to a TV personality or to any celebrity. I thought it would be weird, but feels the opposite. My heart goes out to you, Malan. Please stay strong, and transform those negative feelings and thoughts to beautiful and fabulous designs.

You're such a sweet person. I didn't see the show, but looking at the, she really rocked that dress!

I was watching the episode again today...this time I didn't cry; this time I was watching it knowing you were doing so many amazing things, and it was tres uplifting. Well, in part. I'm still going to miss you on the show! But letting go is good for the soul and knowing that you are living your new beginning gives me joy.

I was looking and looking for photos of Miss USA's dress, and it led me here (I just now watched PR, thanks to Tivo).

It was upsetting to see you go, Malan. I think that you could have offered a lot to the competition, and I did not think Angela deserved to stay.

You are an extremely talented designer, and I intend to be a repeat visitor to see what you're working on!

Best wishes!

I watched it too, just to see the dress. I was excited to see it on stage, and it looked great on her. I was rooting for Japan to win, but Puerto Rico was beautiful too.

I hope you have a great week, and that everything is going well for you!! :D

I almost missed the pageant, but my mom called me into her room with about twenty minutes left to see the end. It was SO exciting to see Miss USA's dress! I really did feel a part of something just by knowing part of the process that went behind that dress choice. It was also really exciting to see Santino judging, and Carson commenting -- reality invasion, haha!

I was rooting for Miss USA and was disappointed that she was fifth runnier up, but it's okay that Miss PR won, even though I was not a fan of that dress, it made her look a bit like a fish skeleton. Did you hear that the poor girl fainted about forty minutes after the show ended?? She's only eighteen. The world of pageants is a strange one indeed.

Got to admit, although Kayne knows his pageant dresses, Tara looked as if she was walking in soft serve ice cream. I wouldn't have chosen that gown but then I would never have chosen to be in a pageant, assuming that anyone would invite me to be in a pageant--ah, and that's another story...

KayneさんとRobertさんのワンピスはとてもきれいよ!テレビでMiss Universeを見なかったけど、写真を見た。


To tell you the truth though, I've never paid attention to the Miss Universe or Miss USA pageants. However, I still think that dress is beautiful and looks great on Miss USA

I loved how she looked like she was on a pedestal and I have a secret love for fabrics that change in the light. I was also in love with Miss Japan. I liked her unconventional answer to the history question. I didn't hear anything about Kayne and Robert being there, but everyone was raving about Satino being a judge.

Oh! I was so sad to find out that I had missed the pageant (how forgetful of me) but I saw the photographs of Kayne and Robert's dress and it looked beautiful on Tara Conner. Everyone here was so excited when Tara was crowned Miss USA, she was all over the news. (I think it was the first time someone from Kentucky won the title) Even though she didn't win Miss Universe, Ms. Conner did very well and we're all proud of her. It was also very interesting to see the dress Nick Verreos designed for Nancy O'Dell.

Kayne & Robert are both so adorable. I hope you will remain friends with them for many years to come. They seem like good souls.
