Mrs. World - 2008
The prize of audience sympathy was awarded to "Miss Singapore" by Colin Francisco-Mason, who became the owner of the amber crown.
By tradition, the privilege to participate in the competitionIs granted only to married women over 18 years of age from all over the world. The main idea of this competition is to draw public attention to the importance of family values. According to the organizers, for Russia, where 2008 is declared "the year of the family," this is especially true.
This year, contestants arrived in KaliningradFrom 40 countries of the world. Among them, the majority are mothers who successfully combine work and family. Almost none of the contestants was engaged in the modeling business before, RIA Novosti notes.
Marinika Smirnova represented Russia at the competition. The Russian woman failed to repeat the success of her compatriot Sophia Arzhakovskaya, the ballerina, who in 2006 became "Mrs. Mira."
In that year, the diamond crown almost went to"Mrs. Costa Rica" Andrea Bermudez Romero. However, at the last moment the organizers stated that "there was an error," and the winner was named "Mrs. Russia" by Sofya Arzhakovskaya.
