Miss Universe United Arab Emirates is set to host its first pageant in Dubai this year! The pageant is reported to be held at the La Perle in Al Habtoor City on November 7. The Miss Universe UAE organization is already calling on interested applicants to apply. Applicants have to be between 18 to 28 years old, a UAE citizen or resident for at least three years, and have valid Emirates ID.
The three-hour event will feature women representing the beauty and essence of the UAE competing in multiple categories, including personal statement, couture activewear, evening gown and interview, according to an official statement.
Applications and casting are officially open now here.
All those selected will be called for a personal casting call on October 15, 2021 at Al Habtoor Palace Hotel. From there, only 30 will advance to the live show and will be announced on October 20, 2021.
“I could not be more pleased to welcome the first-ever representative from the United Arab Emirates, to our globally televised event in December,” said Paula M. Shugart, President of the Miss Universe Organization. “The UAE is marking a very important time in its history, from the signing of the Abraham Accords, to hosting the World Expo, and there has never been a better time to shine a spotlight on the women residing in this country.”
