Miss Belgium pageant celebrates 80 years
The organisers of the beauty contest plan to hold a reunion of all the former pageant winners.
Darline Devos, the organiser of the Miss Belgium beauty pageant, wants to hold a reunion of all the former winners of the pageant. The reunion is to mark the 80th anniversary of the pageant.
Darline Devos hopes to be able to invite all the former Miss Belgium pageant winners to an exclusive party in the Knokkecasino. The Miss Belgium committee has launched an appeal on its website and in the press to track down all the pageant's winners.
The first Miss Belgium beauty pageant took place in 1929. Jenny Vanparays was the lucky winner of the very first coveted crown. During World War II no pageant was held.
