I never thought that in order for a woman to validate her existence, beauty, and sense of style, she needed to enter some beauty pageant, win said contest, or come in second etc. Using a mirror can give a woman with a healthy self esteem all the validation she needs.
And when it comes to some beauty contests, I have always wondered a thing or two. Like during the display of the evening gown segment, why do the contestants’ shoe heels need to be so high?
I have been to several beaches so far in my life, and never have I seen a woman sporting a bathing suit in high heels in real life. So I think if heels are not worn on the beach by a beach lover in the real world, why should a contestant in a beauty pageant parade on stage in heels during the swim suit display part of the program? And is politics somehow involved?
For most women who frequent the beach may wear sandals, rubber slippers, or no footwear at all. Who wants to be bothered with all that on one of the most relaxing places on the planet; the beach?
Or maybe some beauty contests are more about politics than they are about beauty and a sense of comfort when someone is wearing an evening gown or just out for a stroll along the beach.
Especially since the high cost of gas has been such a heavy issue lately. Almost everywhere you go or everyone you run into, someone has something to say about the price of gas.
So when the Miss Universe 2008 contestant for the oil rich nation of Venezuela, Dayana Mendoza, won the title, I was not surprised. The other non surprise? When Miss Colombia, Taliana Vargas was first runner up. A country that was recently in the news about the hostage rescue mission that also included the rescue of Colombian politician, Ingrid Betancourt.
Oh and someone once told me that in life there are no coincidences. Maybe some things are just about politics, beauty pageant or not.
And in case some of you were wondering, the contestant who represented Miss USA, in this year’s Miss Universe competition, Crystle Stewart, made it to the top ten even though she tripped on stage during the evening gown portion of the show .
