While Croatia has not registered an official win yet, it has always been a strong competitor in the annual Miss Universe. Aside from belonging to Donald Trump’s favored regional bloc among the candidates, the Central European nation almost always commands attention with the strong entries they send – just like Elizabeta Burg, a semifinalist last year.
For 2013, an 18 year-old Zagreb stunner going by the name of Melita Fabečić will be traveling to Moscow, Russia to try and become her country’s very first Miss Universe victor. While she may be often compared to Supermodel Adriana Lima in terms of looks, I can sense a more refreshing vibe that could click with the keenly-watching pageant majority looking for a face that shines when pitted against Latinas and fellow European counterparts. She can scream sensual in one pose, sweet and naive the next. Of course, it should come naturally for this lass who debuted to adulthood just last year.
So who’s aboard Team Melita for now? 😉
P.S. I’m pleased that this post was picked up by Croatia Magazine for their online coverage.
