This year the Miss World competition was won by Vanessa Ponce de Leon from Mexico. Maria Vasilevich from Belarus entered the finals among the top five participants and received the title “Miss World Europe”. This is the best result in the history of our country’s participation in this competition.
In the final show, participants performed dances, showed creative performances and demonstrated evening dresses.
Maria Vasilevich came on stage wearing a dress made of shiny fabric, which changed shades — from turquoise to blue — under the stage light.
Tut.by writes that the design of the dress was developed by Yulia Latushkina, it has a connection with Belarusian lakes and rivers.
In the final, Maria Vasilevich, along with girls from Thailand, Mexico, Uganda and Jamaica, answered questions from the jury.
To understand the question, the Belarusian participant needed a translation.
Miss World is the most prestigious beauty pageant. It has been held since 1951. In 2014, the organizers canceled a defile in swimsuits due to “inconsistencies with the spirit of the times.” In recent years, the competition focused on the idea of “beauty with a goal”, paying great attention to the charity projects of the contestants. Thus, the winner, under the terms of the contest, donates prizes to charity and during the year – until the next contest – should take part in charity events (her housing in London will be paid for the whole year).
