Pageants of the 70`s


The standards of beauty have changed throughout the generations and years, but no other decade is as fondly remembered by people as the 70s. There was just something magical about that decade: the industry was booming, and the media attention to the pageants was massive. It is no wonder that it’s the 70s that are now remembered as the golden days of beauty pageants. And thus, just like it was back then, the biggest beauty pageant of them all is Miss Universe which celebrates the women’s beauty all around the world. Very soon, we will know the name of the new owner of the title. For the first time, the contest for the title of the most beautiful girl in the world took place 66 years ago, in 1952. During this time, the ideals of beauty have changed dramatically: in our time, it is impossible to even imagine that the queen’s crown would be awarded to a woman shorter than 5’6. But the first women who won the title of Miss Universe were much smaller than the modern participants. Regardless of that, they were in no way inferior to the modern winners. Today we will return back to this period of time and talk about the most outstanding Miss Universe hotties throughout the years.
