Throwback Thursday (12.18.14): The First in Florida

Miss Universe 2014 will be staged on January 25, 2015 at Doral, Miami, Florida. This is the first time that the pageant is held at this Miami suburb. However, this is not the first time that the pageant will be held at the Sunshine state!

My Throwback Thursday entry brings us back to the very first pageant that was held in Florida. This was in 1960! Reigning queen was Japan’s Akiko Kojima!

This was the official program for Miss Universe 1960!

Look at how Akiko looked so exotic here.

After the glittering event, the hometown queen (Linda Bement) won the title!

This year is extra special since this is also the year that Stella Marquez of Colombia competed!

She landed as one of the semifinalists. We all know what happened next 🙂
