Beauty Contest officials decide to honor Vinicius de Moraes


Vinicius De Moraes was many things: a poet, a singer-songwriter and playwright. Outside of the artistic realm he was known to be somewhat of a bohemian, with a great apatite for alcohol and a love for women.

His constant drinking and eight wives serve as a testament to these claims. One then, can only imagine what the late great musician would have thought about having a beauty contest that will honor 100 years since his birth. However, these contestants probably would have been a little below his preferred age range.

The event is Miss Brazil Universe Teen and will feature the most beautiful females ranging from 11 to 15 in the pre teen phase and 15-19 in the teen phase. It will be held between April 19th and 22nd in the city of Campo Grande. The winner will represent Brazil in Miss Teen Universe 2013 which will be held in May. There will be 2 sections based on clothing style: a standard section and a gala. The gala section will also serve as a tribute to De Moraes and will feature iconic elements of his life and work.
