Miss Uganda 2013, Stella Nantumbwe failed at the Miss World 2013 beauty pageant emerging as the 95th beautiful girl out of the 128 contestants for the title.
Ms. Nantumbwe has so far been one of the Ugandan beauty queens who has reached as far as the finale of the pageant despite her earlier disappointment at the Miss World Beach category where she failed to impress the judges. The grand finale of the Miss World 2013 took place in Indonesia at the resort island of Bali.
The 63rd beauty pageant took place in Indonesia’s resort island of Bali.
Miss Philippines managed to take home the crown beating 127 contestants at the competition. “I promise to be the best Miss World ever,” said the teary-eyed 23-year-old Megan young after being crowned Miss World 2013. Four candidates had dropped out earlier, mainly due to illnesses, according to organizers.
Young took the crown from Wenxia Yu of China. Miss France Marine Lorphelin, 20, was crowned runner-up in the competition, while Miss Ghana Carranzar Naa Okailey Shooter, 22, came in third.
