Miss International 2013 Kicks Off in Japan

The 2013 edition of the Miss International Beauty pageant kicked off in Tokyo, Japan, with the participation of 72 beauties from around the world who have been arriving in the country during the past days.

A group of contestants, as usual, has lots of experience concerning international beauty competitions:

Estonia (Madli Visar) competed in Miss Universe 2011, while Netherlands’  Nathalie Den Dekker took part in Miss Supranational 2010, Miss World 2012, Miss Universe 2012, Miss Tourism International 2010 (winner), and Miss Bikini International 2010;  Iceland (Sigrun Armannsdottir) also participated in Miss World, as well as Miss Supranational 2012.  Miss Honduras (Natalya Coto) also participated in Miss Supranational 2012 in Poland. Philippines’ Bea Rose Santiago was a semi-finalist in Miss Tourism Queen of the Year International.

1486851_663995993651322_263423450_nMiss International maintains the main criteria of any beauty pageants. Judging is based on overall beauty, although during the past years their speech about World peace and culture exchange seems to have more influence in the title.

Having said that, this year’s group started with some early favorites, who are expected to make the finals of the competition December 17th:  Philippines, Venezuela, Netherlands, Finland, Mexico, Poland, Iceland, are amongst those fighting for the crown, while we cannot forget the beauties from Colombia, Japan, Korea, USA, Puerto Rico, Brazil, Sweden, Indonesia, among others who will be shining as the moment gets closer.

  2. My opinion, once again Venezuela looks like Gabriela Isler Mood Universe ’13′ I’m thinking Venezuela molds this decade is Gabriella looks, the representative for Venezuela LOOKS exactly like Gabriela, height features, nothing natural, seriously yes Venezuela’s goes all out on international pageants but LORD please send DIFFERENT delegates looks like maybe one Latin looking and a black hair looking and maybe an a half black half Latin, bcuz what this country is sending are sane looking type of women, amazing there molds, I wonder what look is gonna b in the 2020 to 2030 decade.. 2008 & 09 Dayana and Stefania both Venezuela have that, same look and I’m amazed on how BLIND these judges are !

  9. African winner please

    • I agree 200% something DIFFERENT for a change !

  10. Miss Netherlands should right a book. Geewhiz does she not have anything else to do or does Netherlands not have any other girls to send. Move on Nathalie Den Dekker ; AKA participant ins Miss Supranational 2010, Miss World 2012, Miss Universe 2012, Miss Tourism International 2010 (winner), and Miss Bikini International 2010. She must be in the Guinness Book of Records.

  12. Venezuela is not attractive at all.
    Philippines is gorgeous, an unusual beauty. Ditto Mexico. Netherlands will be hard to miss.
    India is stunning, a dark horse who could take it all.

  14. Fighting for the crown: Venezuela, Netherlands, Gibraltar, Philippines =)

  15. Nice body of Miss Philippines. The red swimwear makes it more strikingly hot. Well done once again by Ms Araneta (head of the Philippine national pageant).
