Beauty pageant bans bikinis
Don’t expect to see any bikinis at this year’s Miss World Pageant. Instead, ladies will wear one-piece swimsuits with sarongs for this year’s “beach fashion show” part of the contest.
Organizers say the pageant is not all about a woman’s physical beauty. The pageant is also about inner beauty, which includes intelligence, manners, and achievement.
By the way, the pageant is in Indonesia, the world’s largest Muslim-majority country, so it’s most likely bowing to pressure from the conservative host country.
