The 2016 Miss Universe pageant just finished and it was held in the Philippines. Miss France was crowned as the new Miss Universe. But have you ever wondered how exactly these women answer the questions in the interview? Is there such a thing as a wrong answer?
This just defines that outer beauty is important, but then again the inner beauty is always 10 times more significant. Despite all the training, these beauty queens go through, when the nerves kick in, their minds go blank especially if they always have a hard time speaking a certain language they’re not comfortable in. So if you think you have what it takes to follow the footsteps of Miss France, here are some tips on how to nail that pageant interviews.
DON’T FORGET TO SMILE
Yes, that one word could actually change your life and let you have a big chance of winning a beauty pageant. It is ALWAYS better to have the greatest smile you can wear. It doesn’t just enhances our beauty, but also it gives people a positive aura and it actually makes them smile as well. As a beauty queen, you’re not just there to look beautiful, you are there to represent your country and of course, as a woman who have the power to help change the world and make it into a better place even for just a short amount of time. You have to wear that genuine smile at all times.
However, having that genuine smile can actually turn into a really stiff smile after a while because your face will eventually get tired, so you have to do some facial exercises from time to time. A little practice wouldn’t hurt. It would also help if you practice in front of a mirror and check if if your smile actually looks natural and pleasant to the eyes or do you have to adjust it and try a differ kind of smile. Just make sure you are smiling comfortably not just because you are forcing yourself to actually smile. So no matter is how elegant is the dress you’re wearing, no matter how fancy your jewelries are and no matter how pretty you look, it wouldn’t be complete without a smile.

It is true that being nervous can’t be helped once you’re already on stage with eyes focused on you. But then again, that is also something you should be practicing before the event. You should know how to calm yourself down and collect your thoughts.
You can try some breathing exercises to help you calm down so that when you’re feeling all nervous before coming onto the stage, you can do it to calm you down. It is perfectly normal to be nervous, you just have to take control of yourself instead of it controlling you. Remember to just be confident about yourself and you wouldn’t have to worry about anything.
BE TRUE TO YOURSELF
The question and answer portion of every beauty pageant is one of the most important part of the event. And one of the best things you can do is to just answer the question straight from your heart. This is not an exam that there is such thing as right or wrong. The only way you’re going to nail this, is to actually be genuine. Don’t say the things that people would like to hear, don’t answer just for the sake of their approval. What is on your mind matters, but of course it has to be appropriate.
As a beauty queen, you have to be an inspiration, not just for women, but also for children and other people. You have to be a good example for all of them and it may be a lot of pressure, but then again if you really want something, nothing is impossible. It may be a huge responsibility but it will all be worth it in the end.
