The Miss International 2017 Early Frontrunners

The Tokyo-based Miss International pageant is scheduled to be held on November 14th at the Tokyo Dome. So far the prospects of a strong batch is still in the making. 9 girls out of the confirmed 28 candidates for Miss International 2017 makes the initial list of Sashes&Scripts’ early frontrunners.

Colombia, Vanessa Pulgarin – definitely a top 5 material. Colombia has done exceptionally well in this pageant and it is expected to do so again this year. This Gabriella Isler look-a-like might bring back the Mikimoto crown to Colombia.
France, Vaea Kealoha Ferrand – she’s the 2nd runner up to Miss France Alicia Aylies. This Tahiti-based stunner is absolutely gorgeous and could possibly win France’s 2nd MI title.
Indonesia, Kevin Liliana – after placing well in the top 5 last year, Indonesia’s rep has big shoes to fill. No doubt this pretty lass can do well in the pageant.
Philippines, Maria Angelica de Leon – hers is a tough challenge, that is to place the Philippines in the semis and win despite the Mikimoto course. She is still a top 5 caliber-contender though.
Macau, Sofia Paiva – this pretty lass with Portuguese descent is a surprise in this list. We are hoping that she would give Macau a decent placement at MI.

South Africa, Tayla Robinson – the girl everyone is buzzing about that could be the first South African to win MI. Her blonde, blue-eyed looks is certainly gonna be a hit among Japanese judges.
Sweden, Lina Ljungberg – sex appeal in the metric tons! The brunette looker can be her country’s first win in the pageant. Hopefully she would be polished well enough for the Japan-based competition.
USA, Shanel Kapri James – despite the fact that no woman of color (specifically black and/or African of origin) has yet to win the MI title, Shanel is still a lady to watch out for in the competition. 
Venezuela, Rosangelica Piscitelli – an Edymar doppelganger who is gunning for another win for her native Venezuela. This multi-lingual actress/model was Sashes&Scripts’ pick to win Miss Venezuela last year and MI could be her redemption.

While these girls are being evaluated based solely on physical attributes, Sashes&Scripts is eagerly waiting to see more of them speak. Surely that is where the wheat is separated from the chaff.
