On March 5, 21 Miss Universe WA Finalists took to the stage at Burswood Park at the music and fashion event, Beauty and the Beat.
The event, hosted by Miss Universe Australia Rachael Finch and 92.9’s Sam Mac, saw the beauties judged in Pepe Jeans, UGGYS GENUINE boots, Kooey swimwear and Tarvydas gowns.
Seven state finalists were selected to move on to the national Miss Universe Australia final in Sydney this June. They were Alana Wilkie, Asher Crawford, Casey Leigh Magatelli, Lia Tapper, Megan Meares, Renae Wauhop and Stephanie Whife.
Beauty and the Beat wasn’t only a treat for the eyes, but for the ears as well, with UK house trio Dirty Vegas playing live in their only Australian show. The band wowed the crowd in their exclusive performance, with their Grammy Award winning song ‘Days Go By’ being the sure-fire hit of the night.
Beauty and the Beat was more than just a five-star night of entertainment though – all the funds the Miss Universe WA finalists raised have gone straight to ToyBox International to help local visually impaired children.
