The Kiev National Opera Theatre was packed with gorgeous Ukrainian girls, dazzling celebrity judges, and supportive spectators over the weekend for the 20th anniversary of the Miss Ukraine pageant. It was finals night and 27 stunning ladies were all competing for the crown, in bikinis, evening gowns, and cocktail dresses. However, only one woman walked away with the title -- Karina Zhironkyna!
The 21-year-old beauty is currently studying interior design but she has been modeling since age 13, primarily in Asia. Therefore, she'll be comfortable traveling to Ordos, Inner Mongolia, China for her place in the Miss World pageant on August 18th.
All of the beauty was not contained on the stage, however, as the panel of celebrity judges also delighted the crowd. World famous socialite Paris Hilton, R&B singer AKON, rapper Timati, Israeli model Bar Refaeli and Ukrainian actress and singer Vera Brezhneva were tasked with choosing the winner.
