The contest “Miss World 2014” kicks off in London on November 20 and will last for three and a half weeks, the final will be held on December 14th. This year, the tradition of the previous three years to send the same girl for two major international beauty pageants, Miss World and Miss Universe has been finally interrupted. It is possible that the organizers of the contest “Miss Russia” have finally realized that the girl who has not achieved success in one international competition, just will not succeed and the other. Therefore it is better to give a chance to two different girls two contests than two chances for one. However, the decision to send the second Vice-Miss Russia Anastasia Kostenko to “Miss World” the organizers explained that “Miss Universe” and “Miss World” has been held in similar terms, with a difference of only 5 weeks between the final, so the winner of the contest “Miss Russia” Julia Alipova simply does not have time for both competitions and she will be ready only for “Miss universe.”
Why in the “Miss World” participates Second Vice-Miss Russia, not the first (Muscovite Anastasia Reshetova) remains a mystery.
