Contestants prepare to join the last four days of the
preliminary judging before the final round of the Miss Tiffany Universe 2010
Pageant on May 7.
Hopefuls for this year’s Miss Tiffany Universe
transvestite pageant title had to pass muster with an experienced panel of
beauty experts if they hoped to make it to final round of the May 7 contest.
Preliminary judging ran from May 3-6 at the Tiffany
Theatre with judges stressing a theme of “reality” in entertainment and
fashion. This year’s panel is comprised of Pageant Chairman Saree Wongmontha,
Miss Tiffany Universe 2004 Treechada Malyaporn, Pageant Chairwoman Alisa
Phanthusak and Darin Somsuwan, spokesperson for Asoke Skin Hospital.
Contestants were graded on skin quality, the ability to
project self confidence, sitting, standing and walking.
Thailand’s most celebrated women of the second category will then compete
for the title of the 13th Miss Tiffany Universe in a two-hour final telecast
live this Friday from the theater at 11 p.m. on Channel 7.
