Miss USA’s slip and slide

MISS USA Rachel Smith made the top 10 today in her bid to reign as Miss Universe 2007, but her chances may have been dimmed when she slipped and fell to the floor during the evening gown competition.

Smith was vying to become the first American winner since Brook Lee in 1997.

From Tennessee, the journalism graduate carried a guitar and wore a white, Elvis-style suit during the opening parade of nations.

Other contestants sported costumes featuring colorful native dress, decked out in feathers, sequins, fur, and huge headpieces.

But her dramatic slip on stage was regarded as near fatal by local experts who said judges valued highly contestants who retained their style and grace on the set.
