Eye For Beauty Blog's Most Robbed Beauty of 2016: #9

Eye For Beauty Blog's Most Robbed Beauty is back. Now that all the pageant for 2016 are officially complete, it's time to pay homage to the ones who I was sad to see not place last year. Now, we all know that beauty is subjective and I must say that this year I don't have as many "misses" as in the past and I don't feel so strongly about them. I do still want to give a shout-out to a few who caught my eye during the year.

I thought she was a perfect fit for the Miss International Pageant:

#9: Miss New Zealand International, Jessica Tyson

Jessica Tyson was one of the hot favorites to win the Miss World New Zealand title, but eventually finished in second place. This meant that she was automatically awarded the Miss International New Zealand title. I was actually happy that she was being sent to Miss International as she seemed to fit the Miss International look and I thought the Japanese would love her. I think she handled herself with poise, class and elegance and, therefore, I was surprised not to see her in the top 5 and shocked to see her left out of the top 15.

Samantha James wins Miss Universe Malaysia 2017

23 year old Samantha Katie James was crowned Miss Universe Malaysia 2017 last night. She will represent Malaysia at the 66th Miss Universe Pageant. Dana Low finished in second place and Ollemadthee Kunasagaran finished in third place. Laura Simon completed the top 4.

She's nice, but she needs to tone down the makeup. Sad my favorite didn't make it - hope she comes back.

Miss South Africa Drug Rumours Exposed as Fake News


In an official statement on their Instagram, The Miss South Africa organisation rubbished claims of Miss South Africa being involved in the distribution of narcotics. 
Their post is in response to a fake news story that made the rounds earlier this week, that said that Miss South Africa, Ntandoyenkosi Kunene, was arrested at London's Heathrow Airport with 2kgs of cocaine. 
In the post the organisation said, "The Miss South Africa organisation confirms that the online article about Ntando Kunene is false. We can confirm that Ntando is currently at her home in Johannesburg and in no way supports or is associated to the illegal smuggling of narcotics."

Poor Ntando! These people coming up with these fake news stories should really find something better to do. She's been a wonderful and hardworking Miss SA.

Eye For Beauty Blog's Most Robbed Beauty of 2016: #10

Eye For Beauty Blog's Most Robbed Beauty is back. Now that all the pageant for 2016 are officially complete, it's time to pay homage to the ones who I was sad to see not place last year. Now, we all know that beauty is subjective and I must say that this year I don't have as many "misses" as in the past and I don't feel so strongly about them. I do still want to give a shout-out to a few who caught my eye during the year.

If only she had been better prepared:

#10 Miss Moldova International, Alina Kirchiu


What a face, what a beauty! When I released my first leaderboard for Miss International, I had her in the top 5. She went down the leaderboard as the competition went on as it was clear that she was not as well-prepared as some of her fellow competitors. Sadly, not even the Miss Perfect Body title she received on the final night could help her advance to the top 15. I suspect a lack of preparation and communication skills (in English) stopped her from grabbing one of the top spots.
