A perception of a woman’s beauty can be quite various. Even inside the boundaries of one country, for example in modern Ukraine one can see completely different concepts of it. You don’t have to go far afield. Just peep into social networks, look at popular users’ pages, read their comments to photos, and you’ll see how different they are. Some people like blondes, some brunettes. For some a girl with long legs and big breasts is a model, and for some a tiny and smiling Malvina.
A popular Russian photo blogger Sergey Dolya has been to Ukrainian beauty contest ‘A Pearl of the Black Sea’ as a jury member and told how hard it is to choose a winner. Also, he made a small eye-witness photo report.
The first day was dedicated to an acquaintance with contestants on a yacht. Bright, remembering images in bikini, a sea of sun and smiles.
After all, on the next day the contest itself took place. Now many people say that beauty contests are paid up and decided in advance. But here everything turned out to be fair – those win who really do it.
Well, here she is, the Pearl of the Black Sea 2013, a 17-year-old Vlada Scheglova. By the way, last spring Vlada became a winner of the city festival ‘Miss Vinnitsa-2013’.
A 22-year-old model Yulia Ustinova from Sevastopol got a band of a vice-miss. An 18-year-old Anastasia Zacharchenko from Sumy became the first vice-miss, while a 20-year-old student Ksenia Kalyaka from Kherson became the 2nd vice-miss.
