    Miss Universe panel eyes Vietnam for 2008 pageant

    President of The Miss Universe Organization Paula Mary Shugart will visit Vietnam from August 8-10 to scout destinations for the 2008 Miss Universe contest.

    Shugart will be accompanied by a vice president and four other pageant officials when she tours the popular beach town Nha Trang, the mountain getaways of Da Lat, and Hanoi, the capital city.

    The schedule was unveiled by the Advertising & Trade Fair Joint Stock Company, CIAT, which is the Miss Universe Organization’s Vietnamese partner.

    CIAT said that Vietnam's successful hosting of a host of major regional and international events, including the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) leaders' meeting, put the country on the Miss Universe's shortlist for next year.

    Other countries that are in running for the event include Spain, Japan and the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

    Miss Georgia 2007 and Runner-Up May Lose Titles for Marriages

    Beauty queen says she was bride kidnapped.

    A scandal has erupted over the “Miss Georgia 2007” beauty contest. Eighteen-year-old Nino Likuchova was crowned the winner in Batumi on July 14, but contest officials may strip her of the title after allegations surfaced that she has been married—and media reports say the most beautiful girl in Georgia was convicted of perjury and given two years probation.

    According to the rules of the contest, contestants should not have been married. The first one to report on the scandalous past of Miss Georgia was Alia newspaper. Reporters allege that Likuchova lied to the organizers of the contest and hid the fact that two years ago she was engaged to a certain Merab Abashidze. In an interview with Rustavi 2 Likuchova said she doesn’t think of this as a marriage because she was forced into this relationship that lasted only four days:

    “He and his friends kidnapped me from my town, kept me locked up and threatened me with guns. Those were the most terrible days in my life. As for the rumors that I am on probation, I will prove them wrong when I freely leave the country for the Miss Universe Contest,” said Likuchova.

    The press published the photos of the wedding ceremony of Nino and her evidently handicapped young husband, standing by her side with crutches in both hands. It turned out that Abashidze won the case when Nino put him on trial because he presented those pictures. As the Alia Newspaper said the court took Abashidze’s side and sentenced Nino Likuchova to two years probation.

    “I never did anything to her by force. If I wanted to become her legitimate husband by force I would have taken her to Konka (registry office in Tbilisi), but we were in church, having our marriage blessed,” says Abashidze.

    Rustavi 2 reporters visited Abashidze’s house. His parents refused to give any details, but announced only that “this girl” never was at their house. They also found video material, proving that two years ago Likuchova’s parents went to the police asking them to find their kidnapped daughter.

    If the rumors prove to be true Nino Likuchova will not be able to go to the Miss Universe Contest as she has no right to leave the country until the probation period is over.

    Image Centre, the company which organized the Beauty Contest, refused to make any comment until the full picture became clear. “We learnt about it from the press. We can’t make any statements yet; we just have to clear it all up. There are too many questions. We asked Likuchova to come to Tbilisi” a representative of Image Centre said.

    As a rule, if Nino Likuchova can not depart for China and represent the country at the Miss Universe Contest, the vice “Miss Georgia”, Nino Lekveishvili, should go instead. The problem, however, is that Nino Lekveishvili was also married in the past. When filling in the questionnaire, she simply lied about her marital status. Urgent consultations are underway at Image Center. A decision has yet to be made.

    Honey Lee becomes one of Gucci's newest models/ambassadors.

    Of course, Riyo Mori has her usual fashion sense that covers some of the big names in fashion like Gucci, Prada, Oscar de la Renta, Miu Miu, Jean-Paul Gaultier and Yushiyuki to name a few. And she's set to appear in ELLE after her June appearance at the Vogue CFDA 2007 Awards.

    Teka. How ironic that Riyo won MU with Gucci but Honey was made the newest model/ambassador? Tama ba intindi ko?!

    And I think the labels are going over the Korean gals more...Celine even created a line with Korean actress.

    On MU candidate cities - will candidates done labels and high fashion if held in Japan?! :P

    I did have thought about MI and Japan but I also thought of the fact that MU management is different from MI. Trump is a businessman and he will not allow MU to succumb to ratings death so to speak :)

    On Ms Korean 2007 ... I forgot to add how smart she thinks. Very impressive. Like the way her answer of thinking how to "market" and "brand" Korean women and how she is dead serious in "planning" and "managing" it hehehe... Hanep!*okay*
  • JENSIE_GJENSIE_G warm regards ✭✭✭
    I agree. Any possible venue for MU in Japan? Is the Tokyo Dome big? :wondering:

    Re: Miss Korea, if she continues with her makeover, she can make it to the semi-finals, or even finals next year in MU!
