RWD Third (3rd) Annual (sort of) Beauty Pageant!!
« on: August 30, 2009, 01:33:35 PM »
Some of you may recall the previous RWD Beauty Pageants, found here -- http://www.russianwomendiscussion.com/index.php?topic=2180, and here -- http://www.russianwomendiscussion.com/index.php?topic=6645.0

Our First RWD Beauty Pageant was something of a surprise to me, with preliminary results indicating a successor to perennial favorite Anna Kournikova would emerge from the group. Then, in a last minute surge to the finish, Kournikova asserted her dominance and won the competition.

Our second RWD Beauty Pageant had no such drama. From start to finish actress (and Bond girl) Olga Kurylenko ran away with the competition.

This competition presents 14 of the most beautiful women from the Former Soviet Union. They range from professional dancers, to runway models, to popular actresses.

The poll will run for 21 days, and is set to show results only after you have voted.

For our many guests who lurk in the background, photos are only viewable by members who are logged-in, so please create an account and cast your vote!

Enjoy!

Dan,

In addition to the direct votes about the most beautiful RW, your thread is gathering votes (number of times photo viewed) about what attracts the most attention of RWD members.  The answer - either we have a lot of Chicago Cubs fans, or it is the answer we all knew beforehand.   To have made it fair, you could have included photos highlighting other body parts.

With great certainty I say you most resemble Mila. ;D ;D ;D

Having spent a great deal of time looking at VWRW I think I will agree but only from the nose down.  They eyes are very different,  Perhaps Diaz for the eyes, I haven't paid that much attention to Diaz.

In addition to trying to figure out who the lean mother of three is in BC's photo (http://www.russianwomendiscussion.com/index.php?topic=10149.msg198496#msg198496) - what is our contestant Victoria Zdrok (http://www.russianwomendiscussion.com/index.php?topic=10149.msg198478#msg198478) known for (beyond the things listed in her brief bio in the linked post)?

She aimed to specialize in the "area where law and psychology intersect" and originally intended to become a jury consultant. She later completed a post-doctoral qualification in sex therapy at the Robert Wood Johnson Medical School.

It's nice to see some of the world-renown FSU beauties.  Thanks for posting this, Admin.  My vote goes to Krasova  with Sukhinova a close second.  I particularly like their middle pictures where they are dressed casually and look "normal" and relaxed.  I dislike Krasova's top picture even though I voted for her; it was her middle picture that easily won it for her.
