‘Beauty is Power’ inspired

By CHOONG MEK ZHIN

PETALING JAYA: This year’s Miss World Malaysia theme “Beauty is Power” is inspired by the likes of Cleopatra and Nefertiti, queens who brought the entire empires to their knees.
And a total of 21 contestants will be vying to do just that at the finals on Oct 2 at Sunway Pyramid.
“The theme shows that a beautiful woman is a powerful woman,” said pageant organiser DDBPR managing director Chong Wei-Hsiang.
Chong added that the pageant was also a platform to raise funds for charity and other worthy causes thus teaching its contestants that responsibility goes hand in hand with power.
“This year we have chosen the stART Society to donate all our proceeds to. It is an academy that provides various types of art training for underprivileged and refugee children,” said Chong.

The public will also be able to watch what happens behind the scenes through videos that will be posted on the pageant’s official website at www.misworldmalaysia.com.my.
“Everything from the finalists’ profiles to their training sessions will be filmed and put on the website. People can also comment and vote for their favourite contestants via the website for the first time in the pageant’s history,” said Chong.
Finalist Foong Yuh Wen, 24, an equity research analyst, said that she hoped to gain more confidence through the competition.
“I look forward to the challenge of doing something new,” said Foong.
Mass communication student Stefanie Chua, 21, participated in the competition to make connections and to get more exposure of the industry.
“I hope this pageant will help me learn more about self-grooming and the ability to talk to people,” Chua said.
This year’s Miss World Malaysia will represent the country in the Miss World finals in Johannesburg, South Africa in November.
