Since pageant season has happily started, indulge me on this one dear readers. You often talk about in replies or comments about the kind of speaking ability that you want our Beauty Queens or aspiring Beauty Queens to possess, do watch the “Vogue 73 Questions” videos below and tell me who comes off as most effective for you in answering quick top-of-the-head questions.
I adore women who think on their feet – a little spontaneity here, a little humor there and the rapid processing of thoughts however unrelated the questions may be.
Of course, this is not how you do pageant Q&A. But if bits and pieces of wit and alertness can be thrown in for good measure in an actual personal interview or live chat session onstage, then we’d all be happy watchers and observers. And critics, I might add.
PS You might say that a lot of these interviews are staged. But still, the natural qualities of each subject would still come through after answering the first ten or so.
Here are clips of a British, an Asian-American, an American, an Indian and a Fashion Icon.
