When it comes to beauty pageants, there are some which are more generic and universal like Miss Malaysia and Miss Malaysia Universe while there are some which are more specific. One of the more specific ones which were held is the Miss Malaysia Model of the World.
A unique beauty pageant
The Miss Malaysia Model of the World is a more focused beauty pageant. Unlike Miss Malaysia which looks for female contestants who have an all-rounded personality, Miss Malaysia Model of the World is more focused on the modelling attributes. This mean that contestants are required to have a good and balanced body build, able to speak and many other modelling skills and techniques like posture, makeup, facial expressions and such.
Looks and other characteristics
In pageants like Miss Malaysia, contestants are required to model. For Miss Malaysia Model of the World, the winner of the pageant will contest in the international round of Model of the World competition. This is one contest which is very challenging as they have to compete with other winners who are models in their own countries.
In other words, the Miss Model of the World pageant looks for someone who has the characteristics and attributes of modelling. Besides that, they have to prove that they can carry themselves well and to be able to express themselves during the live shows.
In 2012, the Miss Malaysia Model of the World held its 10th edition which was won by Fancy Goh who went on to compete in China. Malaysia has been participating in the international edition since 1995 and it was only in 2015 which saw the Miss Malaysia Model of the World enjoying success when Tanisha Singh finished in the top 5 of the competition held in Shenzen, China.
