Furthermore, each contestant will receive up to US$3,000 in cash value of fashion and beauty products courtesy of sponsors.
Global Entertainment Pageant with Unique Focus – Springboard for Influential Media Icons
Miss Supertalent of the World was created as an international entertainment collaboration, showcasing acting, singing, choreography and modeling with the spotlight on talent and beauty. It sets itself apart from other pageants in terms of contestants’ profiles and judging criteria, by focusing on the ladies’ talents over superficial qualities. Today, the pageant is recognised as the definitive platform where outstanding young women enter the exciting world of fashion, music, and entertainment to carve out successful careers.
Past winners have risen to become influential icons, such as Egypt’s Meriam George and Peru’s Milett Figueroa. Suta Group CEO Lawrence Choi remarks, “Unlike traditional beauty pageants and supermodel search contests, Miss Supertalent of the World has its sights firmly set on superstars; film stars, pop icons, and supermodels.”
He adds, “With its unique concept of discovering and nurturing talented beauties to become future stars in the global entertainment industry, the pageant has had a longstanding reputation of catapulting previous contestants into stardom or launching international careers in modelling, entertainment and media.” Success stories include Miss STOW Season 1 winner, Diana Starkova, who was the face of L’Oreal’s global campaigns, as well, as Season 5 winner, Srishti Rana, an established Indian runway model and Milett Figueroa, superstar in Latin America with 4 million followers.
