EYES ON THE PRIZE: Hargitay puts her best face forward at Miss World.
Check out that radiant glow. Jamaica's Gina Hargitay, photographed above at second right, joins fellow Miss World country representatives, Elena Ibarbia Jimenez of Spain, Nadyalee Torres of Puerto Rico, Megan Young of Philippines, and Karen Ghraoui of Lebanon, during a press conference at Nusa Dua in Bali, Indonesia, on Saturday.
On Monday, Hargitay was chosen as a finalist in the Beach Fashion Eliminators as the competition gets underway. Beach Fashion is a challenge event, where the contestants vie in a poolside demonstration of 125 ways to wear a sarong. The winner of Miss World 2013 will be announced during a live telecast on September 28.
"So here I am in Indonesia. Time has gone by so fast and I can't believe I'm actually here. Bali is absolutely stunning, and the hotel is beyond luxurious," Gina recently wrote on her Facebook page. "Hopefully I'll be able to sneak in some spa time. I'm so excited to start this experience and so ready to put my game face on. To all of you who have unendingly supported me thus far I would like to say Thank you."
