Hey Everyone!!!!First up, thanks for the advice you gave, ‘Miss Confused’, there were so many varying responses but that’s the joy of it.
Anyways, nothing much is going on with me….my life is quite boring at the moment actually….hmmm I need to do something to spice it up!
I didn’t realize it was Halloween today…hmmm the whole Halloween thing freaks me out but its always fun to go for Halloween parties tho, all the dressing up and things. Is anyone going? what are you dressing up as? let us know!
Its that time again for the Miss World 2007 pageant.Check out the ladies below.

NIGERIA – Munachi Gail Teresa Nwankwo Abbi
Pic & Makeup: Banke Meshida Lawal

ANGOLA – Micaela REIS

BOTSWANA – Malebogo MARUMOAGAE

ETHIOPIA – Mihret ABEBE

GHANA – Irene DWOMOH

KENYA – Catherine WAINAINA

    Wow, Banke Meshida Lawal sure did a great job with the makeup…Last pix I saw of her was the 3rd one and it left me quite dissapointed…Now I see the good looks…I wish her best of luck!

    i agree with bella though… Not much of a wow factor going on, including nigeria. Especially nigeria. IMHO. I think Amgola’s is the loveliest, though.

    The Nigerian girl is stunning but she needs to cut back on the excessive makeup shielding her natural beauty- Im impressed with her she just might have a chance.

    you could say that again. ….ther are so many prety girls out there that could be Miss Nigeria. I guess judges of today judge on other personalities and not good looks alone. You know rite

    My Favourites are Miss Ethiopia, Miss Namibia, Angola and Nigeria. They all look alike..all fair skinned. NO WOW factor. I’m rooting for Muna (Ms Naija) . Is it me or does she look like Hilary from Fresh Prince. She’s a fine gal oo. Go my Naija sister

    IT’S VERY ANNOYING THAT OUR REP IS STILL WEARING CONSPICUOUS LIP-LINE MAKEUP. IS THERE NO PROGRESS IN THE PAGEANT INDUSTRY?

    Also, I don’t know about the girl’s look being ‘marketable’ enough. Yetunde Taiwo should be the next Miss Nigeria!

  14. IntellectualDiva

    October 31, 2007 at 5:15 pm

    Or Aina Fadina because she is NAPPY-HEADED! I’d choose both of them anyday over those fair-skinned ladies…

  15. Zena

    October 31, 2007 at 5:33 pm

    Actually,
    not being biased or anything, the rep for Naija is actually one the prettier ones,
    And yes we do know that there are preetier girls In Naija, but are they all going to contest for a pageant?does anyone get what I’m saying?

    wow.. the Nigerian Rep is soo pretty. All the best x x Its abt time the title came home to Africa …!!

    The Nigerian looks better than the rest of the african queens in my opinion….

    I agree – the Nigerian rep is hot!!

    wow,she looks beautiful, but there are too many beauty contests these days and its beginning to lose its beauty and purpose

    great job by banke meshida,looking forward to her doing my make up some day soon i hope

    nice,which the 9ja girl would tone down the make-up a lil tho.

    Angola always brings the heat with their beauty paegents.
    Munachi is a pretty girl, and the Ethiopian chick too. The rest of them are okay, goodluck to them all.

    I can’t believe no one has talked about Ms. Nigeria’s contacts. Why is she wearing green or blue or whatever colour contacts? Someone said she has nice eyes…hhhm! Are they allowed to wear contacts? Aren’t some of their body parts still supposed to be real? In all fariness though, the Indian beauty queens do it all the time.

    Before I even read Bella Naija’s comment that none of the women had a “WOW” factor, I was thinking the same thing. Don’t get me wrong, most of them are very pretty, but the WOW is not comming across the photo. Tyra Banks and Naomi Campbell have WOW factor to the max. They look amazing in photos.

    I am rooting for Ms. Nigeria b/c I am Nigerian too. Though Munachi is wearing contacts, she has a nice slanted eye shape and beautiful clear glowing skin and straight, white teeth. Angola, Ethiopia, and Nambia are very pretty as well.

    Lol, Miss World really is played out now, most of the girls are nothing short of ordinary, really :p

    Bella, could you please comment on the alleged BBA scandal?

    This really is an affront to women everywhere, if the allegations are indeed true!

    I actually think the Naija babe on her first pic which seems like it captures her natural look is gorgeous! If she’s got charisma, intelligence and charm, I think she will most likely win.

    jokes apart, nigerian women are buriful

    Perhaps among the African Queens, Munachi may have a chance, but she faces stiff (VERY STIFF) competition to the Carribean Queens. Check them out at the Miss World website.

    Miss Namimbia is beautiful … I’m not sure about the others, I really find it hard to believe that they’re supposed to be t most beautiful girls in the country. Someone needs to tell miss Nigeria that dark lipliner was out in the early 90s!

    Great post as usual hun!

    its beyond understanding.if africa is a black-dark country how come most of the contestants are from a light complexion? are we ashamed of our dark-chocolat sugar brown skin? oh what a shame. i thought we were moving forward.
