Kaleidoscope of 2001

Official Site

On 11th October 2001, the Miss Indonesia Unofficial (Website) was officially launched for the very first time with some of its early features such as Photo Gallery of Miss Indonesia 2001 coronation, #pageants in mIRC, Inneke Kusumawati of Indonesia as our 1st Member of The Week, and information regarding past Miss Indonesia winner since 1993. The website was starting to improve through time to time with much addition of another features. The "International" website was launched in November 2001 to celebrate the 1st Annual of Miss Earth, Miss International, and Miss World. Unfortunately #pageants was not successful as expected and therefore it was closed soon and substituted by a pageant forum called Miss Indonesia (Unofficial) Message Board. At the end of this year Miss Indonesia (Unofficial) was completed with the final election of our first Indonesian Beauty Representative 2001, and our final prediction list for the 4th Annual GB Awards, which was chosen by the Pageant fans from all around the world through voting poll.

Another possibility came from another powerhouse countries such as Miss India (Celina Jaitley), Miss USA (Kandace Krueger), Miss Spain (Eva Siso Casals), and not to mention Miss Colombia (Andrea Noceti). The publication of the pageant risen up after Miss Brazil (Julianna Borges) was accused for having 19 surgeries in her preparation through the pageant and Miss France (Elodie Gossuin) was doubted as a transvestite candidate. Miss Korea (Sa Rang Kim) may proud with her "Best National Costume" award along with her court Miss Philippines (Zorayda Andam) and Miss Honduras (Olenka Fuschich) as runner ups.

Miss Nigeria, Agbani Darego who was also a semifinalist in Miss Universe 2001 and Webmasters choice winner for Miss Universe 2001 won the Miss World title after more than 25 years the African always absent from winning the crown. Another memory was the failure of the quartet powerhouse pageants (Venezuela, India, USA, and Puerto Rico) to enter the top 10 semifinalist in Miss World 2001. Moreover, China who participated in the pageant after several years absent have successfully put their candidate Bing Li as a finalist this year.

After the Latinas dominated the Miss International podium winner for 4 years in a row since 1997, now the Europeans may glad because they take back the Mss International 2001 crown back to the continent after 1996 since Greece won the crown. It was Malgorzata Rozniecka of Poland who took the crown from the hand of Vivian Urdaneta (Miss International 2000) from Venezuela. It seemed like a dejavu for Venezuela, in 1997 Consuelo Adler won the crown and the year after Daniela Kosan was almost made a back to back title for Venezuela and being a 1st Runner Up.
