Designing Bikinis for Trump's Bevy of Babes


Recently we told the life story of a young fashion designer in D.C. named Tala Raassi, who draws her inspiration from an unbelievable event in her past: When she was a 16-year-old girl in her native Iran, she was sentenced to 40 lashes for wearing a miniskirt to her own birthday party at a friend’s private home. The event changed the course of her life, ultimately leading her to become a designer of women’s clothing, because, as she says, “To me, fashion equals freedom.” We hear that. Her latest project? Designing the swimwear for Donald Trump’s 2010 Miss Universe pageant in Las Vegas. She’s pictured here with the former Miss Universe and this year’s global contenders, clad in bikinis she designed. Tune in to watch the pageant live — and see if any babes fall on their butts — on August 23 at 9 p.m. ET on NBC.
