This Sunday, Vogue meets Miss Universe

When one thinks of Vogue, what comes to mind?

Glorious clothes, designers like Missoni and YSL, and upper-crust socialites perhaps?

When one thinks of Miss Universe, what comes to mind?

Sparkling, spray-tanned bodies, hair spray galore, and lots of girls who want 'world peace' perhaps?
We are told by NYMag that this Sunday night, we will see these two worlds collide, as
Andre Leon Talley, Vogue's Editor-at- Large will judge the pageant, held at the Atlantis resort in the Bahamas.

Let's take a moment and think about what this could mean for Vogue. Will Andre be so inspired by the pageant that we see Vegas-type sequined dresses on the giraffe-legged models in the next issue? Or will Miss Universe take a few cues from the mag, and require all the contestants to don couture?

Perhaps the latter could happen....but the former? We'd like to see Anna's reaction to that one.
