MISS AUSTRIA CHANNELS CONCHITA WURST AT MISS UNIVERSE PAGEANT


While the focus of this year’s Miss Universe pageant was all on the controversial mix up of the winner, (poor Miss Colombia), there was another major taking point at the pegeant – Miss Austria’s fabulous tribute to Conchita Wurst.

While Miss Universe is synonymous with traditional views of femininity and beauty, Miss Austria thought she would shake gender roles up a bit and sport a fake beard just like her fellow countryman Conchita Wurst famously did at the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest.

When stepping out in front of the world for the pageant’s ‘national dress’ category, 20 year old Miss Austria, Amina Dagi looked stunning in her designer gown, fabulous flowing brunette hair, and sparkling diamonds, but it was the beard and a rainbow sash that were really on show with Dagi proudly wanting to display to the world Austria’s acceptance of its LGBT citizens.

While she wasn’t one of the two winners announced on the night, Miss Austria is definitely a winner in our eyes!
