Did anyone go through the painful ordeal of watching the disaster that was Miss Lebanon 2011 yesterday? I’ve never cringed more in my life while watching the pageants answer the judges’ questions,trip on stage and attempt to dance or preform. No really, it was out of this world! I had to cover my face with my hands for half the time, I was sooo embarrassed for them and I don’t even know them. And the judges? Almost every single lady judge except for the amazing designer Reem Acra had overdosed on Botox and facelifts before the show, how can such women possibly be chosen to select the fresh face of Lebanese beauty when they clearly don’t realize the abuse they’ve inflicted on their own faces and how fake they come off to regular folks!?
Every year the contestants in Miss Lebanon get less and less, I’m not gonna say pretty, let’s just say less up to Miss Lebanon or beauty pageant material. We’ve all heard the same thing, many beautiful girls that would qualify come from ” good” families who would not allow them to enter a pageant. I don’t know if that’s true or false, all I know is that if the folks over at this Miss Lebanon Committee can’t find some decent looking girls to throw a pageant, then they should seriously reconsider throwing it in the first place. Now I get that the new Miss Lebanon 2011 has a huge following, many friends and fans, perhaps my standards of beauty are all messed up but I don’t think the new Miss Lebanon Yara Khoury deserves that title, both physically or intellectually. Don’t get me wrong, I am by no means insinuating she is ugly, she is a pretty girl , but by no means or under no beauty standard does this young lady qualify to represent Lebanon locally or better yet at ANY international beauty pageant. Why don’t I let you guys be the judge?… Bisoux
