The official Miss Universe Australia New South Wales State Final was recently held in Sydney at Doltone House Hyde Park, a venue befitting the glamour of the event.
Miss Universe Australia is a national beauty pageant that selects the representative who will go on to represent our country at the international Miss Universe pageant. The current Miss Universe Australia titleholder is Olivia Wells and the pageant provides a platform for Australia’s most beautiful, talented, educated and confident young women to compete for the Miss Universe Australia crown
Thirty NSW State finalists paraded in three sections, Swimwear, Eveningwear and the personality question & answer section, for their chance to be selected by the panel of judges.
The seven finalists representing New South Wales will go through to the national final, where they will compete for the Miss Universe Australia crown, to be held on 6 June 2014, at the Sofitel Melbourne on Collins. One of the seven from New South Wales could possibly be selected to represent Australia at Donald Trump’s international Miss Universe Pageant to be held later this year.
It’s been ten years since Miss Universe, Jennifer Hawkins was crowned, maybe 2014 will be Australia’s year to take the honour again.
Miss Universe is owned by Donald Trump and NBC and is the second most watched event in the world with over one billion viewers, following the World Cup.
