With the preliminary competition done and dusted, Miss Universe hopeful Lisa Madden is no doubt anxious to see if she’ll make it in the top 15 tonight.
But at least the pageant queen will be looking chic on the run up to the final.
The stunning brunette still has events and engagements to attend to as part of her pageant duties and has been given a range of dresses from designer Caroline Matthews.
Speaking to Goss.ie, Caroline revealed that Lisa’s mum has brought some of her collection with her to the sunshine state.

“Her mum went over on the 17th so she’s taken about 5 or 6 pieces of mine so hopefully she’ll be wearing them,” Caroline revealed.
Talking exclusively to Goss.ie at her Designer Showcase at the Conrad Hotel, the Cork based designer explained that her favourite piece from her upcoming Spring Summer collection was missing.
“It’s in Miami with Lisa Madden for Miss Universe – so she took my best piece,” she laughed.

The designer who has dressed TV3 stars Sinead Desmond and Ashling Loughlin as well as E! News presenter Alicia Quarles explained the statement pieces she gave the UCC student.
“I have some cigarette trousers which have a leather panel down the side – all the trousers are extra lengths so you can were them with heels, then they have zips on the inside so you can either have them baggy or leave them long.”
“Then I have a longer version of the tuxedo jacket with a white leather lapel and white leather obi belt ” she said.
The Miss Universe final takes place tonight in Doral-Miami.
