Bright spotlights, jury with serious faces and anxious participants with shaky hands – these are only a few distintictive features of any beauty contests. Although all of us really do want to live in peace, we also want to look like the most beautiful girl in the room…. 🙂
Sense of beauty is subjective, these kind of contests gives me good emotions. Maybe because all of the contestants are being judged not only by their pretty faces, or outstanding figures, but also by their inner beauty.
I would never dare to stand next to these beauties, but I do like to take part in the production part of such contests.
This year I had a pleasure of dressing up finalists of „Miss Universe Lithuania 2019“, which gave me plenty of time to spend with them in person. To be honest – I was pleasantly surprised. Naturally all of them wanted to win a crown, I haven‘t felt any sense of fierce or mean competition in the air.
Sure, there were a few girls who wanted to win at any cost…. Though I think that some of such mood in these contests are acceptable.
The most heart-warming part though was when I saw girls encouraging each other before the very final and nerv-racking appearances on the stage, while hugging and holding hands.
All of the contestants where extremely kind and despite all of the mixture of emotions I believe they were experiencing – they were so nice to everyone – the staff of the peagent, make up artists, the producers.
While I was writing this text, I understood that if the jury really want to pick THE right and deserving winner, they must be thrown in the backstage to feel the atmosphere there. That’s the place where contestants show their real faces.
Thank you for being!
Until next time,
