Miss USA, Rima Fakih, is the latest Miss Universe 2010 contestant to be outfitted in a national costume that's bound to ruffle some feathers at the Aug. 23 pageant.
The Arab American stunner from Michigan will take to the Las Vegas stage dressed as a magnificent golden eagle -- inspired by one on the presidential seal -- designed and created for her by Victoria's Secret Fashion Show costumer Martin Izquierdo. Fakih says she intends to walk the Miss Universe stage as an "symbol of peace" in tribute to U.S. President Barack Obama.
Fakih's costume features a "feather"-trimmed gold leotard with a crystal-embellished bustline and corseted lace-up back for an effect that the reigning Miss USA compares to a "Thanksgiving turkey." Massive golden wings with silver stars jutting out complete the look.
In an open letter to Obama, part of Fakih's "Tribute to the USA" video (above), she explains her national costume choice: "The amazing costume I will be wearing during the Miss Universe Pageant represents the celebration of life, love, liberty and all that is American," she says as patriotic music plays in the background.

Freedom should NOT be taken for granted by anyone. It should be embraced...
