This year’s Miss Israel, Mor Maman, will be proudly displaying the Star of David on her dress during this year’s Miss World beauty pageant.
Miss Israel is representing her native country in the international Miss World beauty pageant adorned in a patriotic blue and white gown featuring the Star of David.
Mor Maman, the current Miss Israel, is highlighting her pride in her native land of Israel. The bold decision by Miss Maman to appear in a dress depicting the symbol of the State of Israel is intended to make a clear statement to the international community: Israel is alive, well and here to stay!
Showing off the national colors of Israel with the star of David embossed across the front and along the arms of the gown, Miss Israel will be competing against 100 other beauty queens from around the world.
Last year the pageant was watched by over 2.5 billion people in 180 countries. This year over 3 billion are expected to view the 64th annual event, which will be broadcast live from London.
The competition began on November 20th and concludes with the Grand Final on 14th December.
There is a Miss World app – a free smartphone application from which viewers can vote for their favorite contestants and help them advance to the final round.
