Miss Eco Universe Takes Selfies With The Pyramids

As the eco beauty pageant rolls on over to Cairo after an exciting kick-off at Sahl Hasheesh, the contestants visit the Giza pyramids to snap some selfies.

After an active stay in Sahl Hasheesh, where the Miss Eco Universe pageant is taking place, contestants from Moldova, Brazil, Australia, Chile, Indonesia, and other countries were spotted at the Giza pyramids, where they took a chance to snap a selfie or two with the iconic landmarks. The event, which began on March 28th, included a cycling event in Sahl Hasheesh, visits to the Mediterranean city of Alexandria, and a recycled dresses contest where the contestants got creative and crafted dresses made entirely out of recycled material.

Amongst the contestants seen at the ancient pyramids was last year’s winner, Patricia Peklar, from Slovenia, as well as this year’s crowned beauty, Venezuelan model Leainy Angelith Jaime, who posted their snaps on their Instagram feeds.
