October 9, 2021

Dubai is all set to host its first-ever the glittering and glamour-filled Miss Universe UAE beauty pageant in November, with the winner heading for the global event in Israel in December, organizers announced on Thursday during a press conference at the Armani Hotel in Dubai’s Burj Khalifa.
The glamourous beauty pageant is set to take place at La Perle, Al Habtoor City, Dubai on November 7 and it is open to all female UAE residents from the age of 18 to 28 with more than three years of UAE residency.
The application and casting will start from Thursday through online registration. The selected ladies will be called for casting on October 15 at Al Habtoor Palace Hotel, then on October 20 the names of 30 ladies will be announced, who will advance to the live show in November.
During that time, participants will go through numerous pre-pageant activities including a photoshoot, runway challenge, commercial shoots and a closed-door panel interview.
The three-hour-long event will feature a number of different rounds, including giving personal statement, couture activewear, evening gown and an interview. There will be no swimsuit round.
The official winner of Miss Universe UAE will advance to the international stage, the 70th edition of the Miss Universe, to be held in Israel in December 2021.
“Miss Universe UAE is not just a parade of beauty or celebration of intelligence but moreover she is a paragon of a purposeful queen and a heart to serve and help through her advocacies,” Gulf News quoted Josh Yugen, founder and chief executive of Dubai’s Yugen Events and the new president and national director of Miss Universe UAE.
Miss Universe, which began in 1952, is the biggest annual pageant in the world. Andrea Meza from Mexico is the current title holder.
