Bulgarian Beauty through the ages – part one

In  our short article we have tried to make a list of the last Miss Bulgaria winners. That turned up to be surprisingly challenging.Why? Well, first off there isnt just one Miss Bulgaria contest, there are a couple and they all say that they are the original, legal Miss Bulgaria.

 

The problem with establishing just one , original and legal contest is bigger than it seems at first .The current situation now creates loopholes – foreign and international Miss Universe, Mrs World and other contests cannot make the difference between a small, unofficial beauty pageant and an official one.  This creates unpleasant situations where people no one has ever heard of turn up to be `winners ` of beauty pageants.
