MR NEVIN RUPEAR IS THE LICENSE HOLDER AND HIS TEAM AND HIMSELF ARE COMMITTED TO WORK WITH THE MISS UNIVERSE ORGANIZATION’S ETHOS: EMPOWERING YOUNG WOMEN AND FOCUSING ON MAKING THEM CONFIDENTLY BEAUTIFUL.

Estrella Mauritius will send their first contestant to The 2016 Miss Universe Pageant as Miss Estrella Mauritius. Miss Universe Organization is the most prestigious international pageant and it welcomes contestants from all over the globe. The winner of the coveted Miss Universe title gets to live for a year in New York City, receives a monthly salary for the time of her reign, travels around the world and is an advocate for organizations that are champions in the fight against HIV/AIDS.

“Working with the Miss Universe Organization will make it possible for us to promote both the image of the Mauritian women and Mauritius on an international stage with the (live) telecast attracting an audience of nearly one billion people worldwide. We look forward to helping the young women in Mauritius achieving their goals and representing Estrella Mauritius to promote health, wellness, beauty, innovation, youth and corporate social responsibility”.

Back in 1952, the first Miss Universe pageant started as a local ‘bathing beauty’ competition in Long Beach, California. Millions of fans around the world follow the contest and the delegates participating are savvy, goal-oriented and they gain valuable experiences which help them in both their professional and private lives. Today the Miss Universe Organization, a WME | IMG company has evolved into a powerful, year-round, international organization that advances and supports opportunities for young women.

The Miss Universe Organization encourages every woman to be herself, get out of her comfort zone, and embody the organisation’s mission of being Confidently Beautiful. The 10,000 women who participate in Miss Universe programs annually inspire others to cultivate their personal and professional goals and make an impact in their communities. Contestants and title holders have gone on to high-profile careers in government, business, finance and broadcasting, as well as acting in film and television. Miss Universe Organization is proud to celebrate inclusion and diversity.

Estrella Mauritius is thankful to the Miss Universe Organization for the trust and confidence they have placed in us and the amazing opportunity they have provided us with to promote the image of Mauritius on such a grand scale. The team is equally grateful to all the sponsors who are collaborating with us in this new venture.

In the next few weeks we will be announcing our commercial agreements, partnerships, sponsors, schedule for our national pageant and the Mauritian representative for the Miss Universe 2016 contest. Details of all the news and updates will be on our social media platforms.

A new chapter in Mauritius has just begun! Estrella Mauritius will promote the Mauritius flair, our culture and beauty of the Mauritian people.
