Round 1: The Exotic swimwear.
When Anrol announced the theme I was curious to know what the girls have come up with and indeed I was in for a treat as each contestant did so well. Ms. Sunrae Suntzu’s body paint idea was really out of the box. Also Ms. Janet Brink’s tiger inspiration and Ms. Kiralyn Destiny’s words “Even the on the beach you want minimal clothes that make you look sexy but not a slut. This swim wear shows off all your curves”, impressed me.

Round 2: Creative/ Talent. Theme: Masquerade Party
Having been a part of the CWS myself for over 3 years, I know that this part of the pageant is the most fascinating and very well thought through by the contestant as here they get to show their creative side and be unique. It is tough to choose just one talent which was the best however Janet, Violetgrace and Sunrae stood out with their performance and styling.
1) SilkyVv Resident- Ginger Spice inspired
2) Laci Rossini- Phantom of the opera inspired
3) Ms Violetagrace Resident- 4th of July and Statue of Liberty inspired
4) Ms Kiralyn Destiny – Masquerade Ball red theme ( I loved the way she called the audience to join)
5) Ms Sunrae Suntzu – The wonderful Masquerade Magician
6) Ms Liberty Lighthouse- The beautiful story of how the lovely lady adorning the mask is spotted behind the curtain by a man who she ends up dancing with all night.
7) Janet Brink- Janet created the set of a ballroom adding pictures of people standing on each side of the stairway as she walks down to dance. Her outfit is breathtaking and her dance was good too. She is so creative in her thinking that each time she leaves me speechless.
Round 3: Question/ Answer and Evening gown themed to the country the finalist represents.
Below: Collage of the gowns worn by the 7 finalists. the big picture is of Janet, this gown is unique and her styling is amazing and she sure looks like an Inca Queen in all of her glory.
As the Contestants were called back on stage one by one for a final look, each one of us waited with baited breath to know what the results would be and who would be the new Miss Universe. As I watch the girls take their final walk there is was gush of emotions that filled in seeing the hard work of all the trainers at CWS. Their endless hard work,dedication to their students, willingness and their passion for the industry is exhibited in each of the girls as they are now polished into fine and glittering diamonds.
Anrol takes over the mic and then the hearts start pounding with the big question “who will it be?”. In her classic style keeping the suspense going and making everyone sit at the edge of their seats she announces:
