    I remember picking up a torn page from the Time magazine 1 hot Cebu afternoon & saw her Ms.World photo,crowned sitting on the throne with cape & scepter and kept it for a long time. Now I cant find it,but memory still fresh. That was in 1967,a few months after she won Ms.World 1966.thank you Brut for this.

    I m surprised at the criteria for being miss world. You can't just know the inner goodness only in few meetings or by few molemorised lines, on the other hand every region has its own beauty standard, . Most of pakistani women r so gorgeous specially in kashmir , gilgit chitral , pishawar like they can b beauty icon for the even all regions of the world. But our religion n our social values never allow the women to display her beauty before everyone. N I think the most precious things r always keep guarded n covered
