Markella Konstantinou (20) was recently crowned Star Cyprus 2014. She will represent her country at Miss Universe 2015. Miss Cyprus 2014 is Rafaela Charalampous. She is 23 years old and will represent her country at the Miss World 2015 Pageant.
The Universe winner is gorgeous. The World girl is quite striking but I think the girl to the left of the Universe girl in the picture above would have been a better bet.

Miss Zimbabwe replaced AGAIN

First princess Tendai Hunda (far right) is now Miss World Zimbabwe

Tendai Hunda will represent Zimbabwe at Miss World 2014 this year. She was the first runner-up of Miss Zimbabwe 2014, Thabiso Phiri. Phiri reigned due to unknown reasons earlier this year. Days later an impromptu second contest took place. Hunda declined to take part in this contest stating that she was happy with her first runner-up position. Catherine Makaya was crowned in the second contest. Now, shortly before the start of the contest, she has been stripped of her title due to being difficult to work with. Makaya has accused the organizers of the Miss Zimbabwe Pageant of exactly the same behavior. The first runner-up of the original pageant will now fly to London later this week.

Miss Honduras Murdered Days Before Miss World Pageant

Officials in Honduras have confirmed that the bodies of Miss World Honduras, Maria Jose Alvarado, and her sister Sofia were found close to the city where they went missing. The 19 year old student won the Miss World Honduras title earlier this year. She was scheduled to depart to London on Wednesday where she was set to join 120 beauties from around the world to compete for the Miss World 2014 title.

RIP Maria Jose Alvardo - Miss World Honduras 2014 

I am deeply saddened and shocked by this absolute tragedy! What a senseless and horrific act. The government of Honduras should really do something about the violence in their country. I hope the Miss World Organisation finds a fitting way to pay tribute to this young lady. My sincere condolences to the family and friends of Maria Jose Alvarado and her sister. RIP
