Search­ing for the next beauty queen

The Sun (Malaysia) - - STYLE -

Cos­moWorld 2018 would be able to grow from their ex­pe­ri­ences.

She also hopes to cre­ate more so­cial aware­ness and val­ues through Miss Cos­moWorld 2018, while rais­ing funds for the chil­dren of the Lovely Dis­abled Home in Petaling Jaya, Se­lan­gor through­out the pageant events, in­clud­ing the grand fi­nals.

Mean­while, a sub­sidiary ti­tle – Best Na­tional Cos­tume – was an­nounced dur­ing a re­cent press con­fer­ence for the pageant, which also saw a pre­sen­ta­tion from each of the 28 con­tes­tants show­cas­ing their dis­tinc­tive na­tional cos­tumes.

The ti­tle was won by 21-year beauty blog­ger and rep­re­sen­ta­tive from Malaysia, Evian Lee, who wore a hi­bis­cus-in­spired ensem­ble which she de­signed her­self.

She said: “I think the na­tional flower of Malaysia truly rep­re­sents the beauty of women, and it sym­bol­ises love, pas­sion and en­ergy which are val­ues I want to bring to my au­di­ence.

“Noth­ing makes a woman more beau­ti­ful than to be­lieve that she is beau­ti­ful. It’s all about the mind­set; if you be­lieve that you are then you re­ally are.

“Par­tic­i­pat­ing the pageant al­lows me to em­power and en­cour­age [other] women to be more in­de­pen­dent, dis­ci­plined, and con­fi­dent to build a po­si­tion for them­selves in so­ci­ety.” – Ja­son Lim
