Very crucial to a Miss Universe candidate is her wardrobe.
Even during the pre-pageant activities, she has to look her best, so every detail in her OOTD—from hair accessory to blings to dress to shoes—are planned meticulously.
Hence, it doesn't come a surprise when some of the candidates arrived with tons of luggage.
Some of their photos have gone viral, with the netizens so curious about their excess baggage fees.
You'll be surprised, however, that some managed to travel light.
Miss Germany Johanna Acs only brought three, a body bag and two suitcases, for her 19-day stay here.
Miss Malta Martha Fenech brought three suitcases.
It's her second time to represent her country. Her first international pageant was Miss World, back in 2008.
Miss British Virgin Islands Erika Creque traveled with her three-piece Calvin Klein luggage.
Miss Portugal Flavia Brito packed three suitcases plus one huge suit cover for her costume.

So far, out of the 86 ladies that are expected to join the 65th edition of the pageant, more than 70 candidates have arrived.
Based on the social media posts, Miss Thailand Namtan Sualita Suansane is the queen of luggage.
On January 10, the 22-year-old beauty arrived with 17-piece luggage weighing 300 kilograms, which is ten times higher than the baggage allowance.
Good luck, ladies.
