Sofia Larina wins the crown at Russia Beauty Pageant 2008
Jul '08
The National Beauty Contest, Russia's Beauty – 2008 was held on July 25 at Onego quay of Petrozavodsk, Karelia. It was for the first time that this prestigious domestic beauty contest, in which sizzling beauties from across the nation participated was held in this region of Russia.

Some 120 aspiring models participated in the preliminary selection round of which 67 got selected and 63 were chosen for the grand finale. Preparation of participants for the competition was held in the Chernye Kamni.

Organizers of this event chose Karelia mainly because the second winner of the previous year's pageant held in Moscow was from the Republic and this tradition may continue for successive contests as well.

The Russia's Beauty - 2008 contest winner was Sofia Larina, a 20-years-old student of Siberian State University of Railway Communication, who was representing the Kemerovo region. She will also be representing Russia at the Miss Universe international contest.

Among the three winners were: the I Vice Miss Ekaterina Kopylova (Tver), the II Vice Miss Zhanna Vlasevskaya, native of the Kemerovo region, although this time she's representing Kuzbas, and the III Vice Miss Anna Vishnevskaya (St.Petersburg).
