Gardening glamour

Congratulations to Miss Iceland Unnur Birna Vilhjalmsdottir for winning the coveted title of Miss World. She can now look forward to a year travelling round the world, doing the same thing as Miss Universe does, but with slightly less prestige and media coverage.

In the Asia-Pacific category, Miss Korea was crowned queen of the region. Here she is pictured on the right (with our very own Miss Hong Kong on the left way) wearing a dress featuring the Esso Tiger. Corporate sponsorship, it's the only way to succeed these days, I tell you.

This year though, all the unforgettable fashion moments were not to be found on the night, but in the pre-show activities instead. The highlight was the tree planting ceremony at the "Beauty Crown Centre" where some zany sitcom-style misunderstanding arose between the wardrobe department and event organisers. Anyhow, it served to show that ecological conservation and glamour can go hand in hand, albeit very awkwardly like two teenage cowboys on a first date.

Ever prepared for the unexpected, Miss USA confidently brought out her curling iron and her all-occasion little black dress.

She may have came in third place, but Miss Puerto Rico is quite a handful. You can't take her anywhere without her top falling off. And look how crooked that tree is. How many rum cocktails have you had today, missy? Only one, I swear.

Miss Peru seemed to think it was Gypsy Night down at the local club - free drink with every fortune told + $5 shrimp buffet.

If points were being given out for this event, Miss Britain would be the winner. Not only was she dressed for a garden party of sorts (and therefore closest to the mark) but check out her lovely bead and sequin toolkit!

I can't say that I was a big fan of Miss Slovenia. There was a cocky way in which she wore lingerie with protective boots that suggested she'd done it all before, and had it taped for her boyfriend's enjoyment.

Meanwhile the remaining delegates just stared in bewilderment at the tree plots before them, wondering where all the hot young male gardeners had gotten to.

As for Miss Italy, I think it would be safe to say that no digging was done by her on that day.
