Despite being a pageant known for adhering to culture and tradition, Miss International hopes to reinvent itself for the more modern and highly-globalized world.
This year, the pageant introduced a Swimsuit Competition preliminary hosted by Miss Paris group.
The 77 delegates from all over the world are also well-traveled during the preliminary events. The ladies get to travel to cities outside Tokyo.
This year Miss International set up a stage with a laser lights show among other effects. Is this a sign that the organization is embracing a more modern take on pageantry? 👑
