Here’s the first event scheduled for the 89 Miss Universe 2012 Pageant contestants who start arriving here this weekend. The official kickoff begins with a fashion runway show at Planet Hollywood on Dec. 6. The glamour girls will wear their gowns on a catwalk to introduce themselves, and the public is welcome. They also will film a behind-the-scenes tour with “Jubilee!” at Bally’s, with NBC recording the high-kicking lineup.
