Miss World 2013 (14th Update): The Beach Fashion Challenge Event


Yesterday, I shared with you the idea behind what Miss World 2013 as the Challenge Events. You can access the article HERE. Now, I want all of our focus to the very first challenge event in the pageant this year - the Beach Fashion. You will know that this challenge is a major event for me! I want you to remember the names of the finalists because I bet that most of these names will be called as semifinalists.

The Beach Fashion event this year is a bit different. I discussed HERE that there will be no swimsuits this year. Thus, for the event, all of the candidates paraded wearing sarong! It is conservative, i know, but it is also important to respect the culture and tradition of your hosts :D Out of the 100+ candidates, 32 were chosen as semifinalists. Actually, the official website of Miss World announced 33 but if you will count the names, it is only 32. A bit weird!!!
