Beauty pageants have always been a very productive way of promoting community work as well as mental and physical health all around the world. The beauty queens who are selected from each nation to represent in different pageants have always been the epitome of beauty, intelligence, and humble and sympathetic personalities. They work hard to attain the position as a representative of their country.

2018 has been the year of advocacies and tough competition with participation in thousands to showcase their best in the Big 5 pageants. These Big 5 pageants are Miss Universe, Miss World, Miss Earth, Miss International and Miss Grand International. In the end, only one beauty with brains is selected to reign for the rest of the year and perform the duties of the reigning international queen. Following are the winners of the year 2018 -


Beauty Queens who conquered the Big 5 pageants in 2018


Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray from Philippines

Catriona was a big name even before she decided to compete in Binibining Pilipinas 2018 which selects a delegate to represent the Philippines in Miss Universe each year. Her participation in Miss World 2016 gave her a spot in the To 5 during its finale, and ever since she has been unstoppable. She has been very active with her community work and has been a remarkable influence on other beauty pageant aspirants. Catriona’s win in Miss Universe 2018 had therefore been very predictable and everyone was very happy to see the Filipino beauty queen take the crown home. Her advocacy, hard work and commitment will surely reap many fruits and be the talk of the year.

Miss International 2018 Mariem Claret Velazco from Venezuela

All the delegates of Venezuela in major beauty pageants have performed really well this year by securing a position as one of the finalists in all the major international beauty pageants. Mariem, however, managed to win the Miss International 2018 crown, which she did through her stellar performance during the course of the pageant. This Geophysical Engineering student was just 19 years of age when she won the crown and coincidentally it was her birthday on the same day as the finale, which is 9th November. Mariem’s win was truly the best birthday wish she could hope of ever getting fulfilled.

Miss Grand International 2018 Clara Sosa from Paraguay

Clara’s win was rather a dramatic one as the moment she heard that she won the coveted title, she fainted in front of the entire world. But one cannot underestimate this beauty because of her strength and dedication towards the crown rumps this minor discrepancy. Her win ensured the dominance of the Latinas or another year. The 24-year-old is a professional chef, a TV host as well as a law student. Talk about a versatile personality! It has been almost two months since her win and Clara has been performing her duties with all her might and showing the world that she was the perfect choice for the crown.
