It has started!!! The biggest beauty pageant for 2014 (which ironically is being staged this 2015) has officially started. Doral, Florida just became the place to be when 88 of the world’s most beautiful descended upon this piece of heaven on earth. The ladies are now busy preparing for the glittering finale set on January 25, 2014 all ready to claim the Miss Universe 2014 title.
Within the very first week of the competition, it was all about sizing up the competition as candidates meet their rivals. Some pre-arrival delegates fizzled out, quiet a few made a pleasant surprise while the favorites continued to rule every fan’s list. For me, it was all about setting their diva mode and these three stood out for me:
Russia made headlines with the “alleged” Ellie Saab couture gown! Such a diva!!!
Venezuela, in a true Diva fashion, arrived fashionably late. Her arrival marked the official start of the competition!
I fell in love with Brazil the moment I saw her departure photos… The diva made the airport her catwalk!
