VOV.VN - Missosology, the world’s leading publication on beauty pageants, has selected Vietnamese representative Phuong Nhi as the second runner-up in its first hot picks for the upcoming 61st Miss International contest.
Elsewhere, Sofía Osío of Colombia was named as the favourite to be crowned Miss International 2023, with Camila Díaz Daneri of Peru expected to be picked for the first runner-up title.
The other beauties to make the list include contestants from the Cote D'ivoire and Thailand, both of whom are anticipated to make the pageant’s leading five contestants.
Phuong Nhi stands at 1.70 metres tall and measures 80-57-88. Hailing from the central province of Thanh Hoa, the 21-year-old beauty first rose to prominence by winning the second runner-up title at Miss World Vietnam 2022, thereby meeting the criteria to compete in the 2023 Miss International pageant.
The global pageant is scheduled to be held in Tokyo in Japan this October with the grand finale taking place on October 26. So far, a total of 52 contestants worldwide have been confirmed as competing for the crown, with the 2022 crown going to Jasmin Selberg from Germany.
First launched back in 1960, Miss International makes up one of the Big Four international beauty competitions, alongside Miss World, Miss Universe, and Miss Earth. This year marks the 61st edition of the pageant.
In previous competitions, Vietnamese representatives have won high prizes, including Pham Hong Thuy Van who finished as the third runner-up back in 2015, in addition to Tuong San who was among the Top 8 in the 2019 version of the pageant.
