Miss Universe 2030?




This week's topic at Our Beautiful World is BEAUTIFUL, chosen by Mandy. 
There is so much beauty and beautiful things in the world and in my life. 
I'll share five short thoughts of beauty.

1 Female Beauty
Soon it is time to crown again the new Miss Finland, so a few words about Finnish international beauty queens.
  • Six times a Finnish girl has been crowned as Miss Europe: in 1934 Ester Toivonen, 1938 Sirkka Halonen, 1955 Inga-Britt Söderberg, 1968 Leena Brusiin and 1976 Riitta Väisänen.
  • We have had one Miss World: in 1957 Marita Lindahl.
  • And two times Miss Universe: in 1952 Armi Kuusela and in 1975 Anne Pohtamo.

The year 1952 was a great year for us Finns. We had summer Olympics in Helsinki and Armi Kuusela (Williams, Hilario) was elected as Miss Universe! She was the first real superstar in Finland - when she came to visit there were thousands of people meeting her at the airport. She has been so beloved through the years! Armi lived years in the Filippines, was married to Gil Hilario and moved later to California with her second husband.



So is she Miss Universe 2030? My photo is not good but isn't there a resemblance?
Those huge eyes, beautiful nose, the lovely lips, that angelical expression...
You never know!

  9. What a lovely thing to be reminded of and to remind us all to look all around for beauty! The flowers and nature really are so wonderful aren't they. People too of course, and not just on the outside, but the beauty of the soul.

It's a pleasure to read such informative photo essay! 'Beauty is in the eye of the viewer' to paraphrase the expression "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder."
