THE BLACK QUEENS OF MISS WORLD 2011: A REVIEW

MISS UNIVERSE 2011 HAS GIVEN US A WELL-DESERVED BLACK QUEEN IN THE PERSON OF LEILA LOPES. MANY OF US CONSIDERED HER A “SURPRISE WINNER”, A WIN SHE CARRIED THROUGHOUT THE COMPETITION AND OUTSHONE THE POWERHOUSES OF PAGEANTRY THAT NIGHT IN SAO PAOLO, BRAZIL.

THE 61ST EDITION OF THE MISS WORLD, THOUGH NOT AS POPULAR AS THE TRUMP-OWNED MISS UNIVERSE, IS FAST APPROACHING. IT MIGHT BE THE MOST BORING PAGEANT OF THE FOUR GRANDSLAM PAGEANTS, JULIA MORLEY’S BEAUTY WITH A PURPOSE IS UNDENIABLY THE MOST NUMBER OF CONTENDERS IN THE HISTORY OF PAGEANTRY.

A BLACK QUEEN RULED SUPREME IN THE “UNIVERSE”, DO YOU THINK THE “WORLD” WILL CROWN A DARK-SKINNED QUEEN AS WELL?

SIXTEEN OF THEM ARE OFFICIALLY IN THE MISS WORLD WEBSITE.  LET US TRY TO EXAMINE SIX OF THEM ON THEIR CHANCES AND SCRUTINISE THEIR FATES.

MISS ANGOLA’S EDMILZA SANTOS IS UNDOUBTEDLY THE MOST PRESSURED BLACK CANDIDATE, AS LEILA HAD SEALED HER FATE ON THE COVETED CROWN OF MISS UNIVERSE. NOT TO MENTION, THE THREE-PEAT WIN OF ANGOLA IN 2007 TO 2009 IN THE AFRICAN CONTINENT. THOUGH SHE LOOKS RAVISHING AND BEAUTIFUL IN HER GLAMSHOTS, SHE STILL HAS A LOT OF COMPETITION FROM THE LIKES OF ARUBA, BONAIRE AND TRINIDAD AND TOBAGO.

GILLAIN BERRY’S (MISS ARUBA), PROVERBIAL BEAUTY IN SAO PAOLO THIS MONTH IS A TESTAMENT TO WHAT SHE CAN ACHIEVE IN LONDON IN NOVEMBER. HER ELEGANCE AND GRACEFULNESS DURING THE MISS UNIVERSE PAGEANT IS WITHOUT A DOUBT HER STRONGEST WEAPON.

BONAIRE’S CONTENDER, BENAZIR CHARLES HAS BEEN IN OUR RADAR SINCE THE MISS UNIVERSE PAGEANT AS WE ALL THOUGHT THAT SHE IS COMPETING IN THE SAID BEAUTY CONTEST. BUT, LOW AND BEHOLD, SHE WASN’T PART OF THE COMPETITION. NOW THAT SHE IS INTO THE MISS WORLD COMPETITION, I CAN STILL SAY THAT SHE IS STILL ONE OF THE DARK HORSES IN THE COMPETITION. SHE COULD BE BONAIRE’S FIRST CARRIBEAN QUEEN AT THE LEAST IF SHE COMES STRONGER IN LONDON.

MISS ETHIOPIA, THE 21 YEAR OLD MELKAM ENDALE, IS A UNIQUE BEAUTY FROM THIS PART OF AFRICA. HER EXOTIC LOOKS MIGHT BE WHAT JULIA MORLEY IS LOOKING FOR THIS YEAR. ANOTHER DARK HORSE IN THE COMPETITION.

TRINIDAD AND TOBAGO’S LEE ANN FORBES IS THE GIRL TO BEAT SO FAR IN THESE BLACK QUEENS. SHE IS THE MOST REFRESHING AND VIBRANT-LOOKING CANDIDATE AMONGST ALL OF THEM BASED ON PICTURES ALONE. HER MYSTERIOUS EYES ARE VERY CAPTIVATING AND ALLURING.

ON THE OTHER HAND, SOUTH AFRICA’S BOKANG MONTJANE, THOUGH NOT AS MESMERIZING AS LEE ANN FORBES, MIGHT BE AN “EXPECTED SURPRISE” AS SHE IS A “VETERAN” IN THE INTERNATIONAL SCENE I MUST SAY.

THIS REVIEW MIGHT STILL CHANGE AS THE COMPETITION COMES NEAR, AND OTHER BLACK QUEENS CROWNED AND DETERMINED NATIONALLY. HOWEVER, ONE THING IS DEFINITE THAT ONE BLACK QUEEN, AT THE LEAST, WILL BE THERE AMONGST THE SEMI-FINALISTS COME NOVEMBER 6. WHO WILL IT BE? YOUR GUESS IS AS GOOD AS MINE.
