Miss Belarus 2023 named

MINSK, 8 September (BelTA) – Eleonora Kachalovskaya became the country's most beautiful girl during the final stage of the national beauty contest Miss Belarus 2023 in the Sport Palace in Minsk on 8 September, BelTA has learned.

As many as 24 girls competed for the Miss Belarus 2023 title. The girls came from all the oblasts of the country and the city of Minsk. They had to demonstrate not only outer beauty but also their intellect and talents. Every girl had already gone through a difficult elimination process in her own region but the victory belongs to the best one.

Eleonora Kachalovskaya is 23 years old. She works as a manager in the modeling agency in the National Beauty School. “Her life motto is don't just walk past. This is how Eleonora met her best friend, a puppy named Tiger, which she picked up in the street,” reads the contest's business card.

By winning the contest, Eleonora Kachalovskaya also received a cash prize, a piece of jewelry, a Geely car and an unexpected gift from the Information Ministry – a collection of works by the Belarusian classic poet and writer Yanka Kupala. The thing is the girls had to answer questions of prominent Belarusian women during the final stage of the contest. An artist from the Yanka Kupala Theater asked Eleonora who the author of the Paulinka play is. The girl was at a loss due to trepidation and could not answer the question.

After winning the coveted title Eleonora said: “I am now sad and upset because I failed to answer such a simple question. Honestly speaking, I am ashamed.” The new Miss Belarus promised to read the play and definitely come to the Yanka Kupala Theater to see the relevant performance.

The winner also said she feels a huge feeling of gratitude to her country. She addressed her thanks personally to the Belarusian head of state: “Aleksandr Grigoryevich [Lukashenko], thank you for giving simple girls like me an opportunity to become part of this fairy-tale.” Eleonora Kachalovskaya assured that she will bear the title with pride and honesty for the next two years.
