Today, Nigeria will see some of its most beautiful ladies strut the runway in the 2018 Miss Earth pageant.
A global brand, it is one of the three largest pageants in the world, with the Nigerian version not lacking behind.
A brainchild of former Beauty Queen and actress, Ibinabo Fiberesima, the annual event is designed to empower women who are role models and also to maintain environmental friendliness.
Featuring a series of awards such as Best in a creative outfit, Miss Photogenic, Miss Talent and Miss Friendship, attendees of this year’s edition will surely have their hand full.
“Miss Earth pageants strongly believed in being socially responsible for our immediate environment, unlike other pageants that raise queens, the pageant believed in raising ambassadors that will pioneer sustainable development in their environments.
“Every year, the four winners of the beauty pageants will represent the four main elements of the world each which includes Water, Air, Fire and Earth with the aim of promoting environmental awareness,” says Fiberesima.
The eventual winner amongst the four will become the environmental Earth warrior and ambassador who will represent the country at the international level.
