Traditionally, the beauty pageant was held in two stages – parade in swimsuits and intellectual competition.
Konstantin Kryukov and Vera Brezhneva, who became the hosts of the show, asked a lot of tricky questions.
For example, future Miss Russia was asked what new holidays she would like to have. Beauty said “We have enough holidays in our country. I think it would be better to reduce their number. We have to work, work and work to improve the economy. Just have a look at Korea, where there are no holidays and weekends”.
– Of course I’m very happy! But it wasn’t my childhood dream, as ten years ago I did not even know about such contest.
– What was your dream 10 years ago?
– Oh. I really wanted to become an astronaut.
The winner is not only beautiful, but also a very clever girl. Yulia graduated from the Physics and Mathematics Lyceum with honors. She has two degrees. Belle is a power engineer (Moscow Power Engineering Institute) and translator from English.
