Miss Afghanistan Update

by Nathan Hamm on 10/27/2004 · 8 comments

The first entrant in an international beauty contest from Afghanistan in 30 years, Vida Samadzai, judged this year’s competition in Manila. There was no candidate from Afghanistan this year. The Pakistan Times reports that Miss Samadzai spends most of her time in the US now.

Here is her personal page. From the looks of it, it seems the world needs more models from that neck of the woods.

hi,Let’s just keep our beauty inside afghan girls,i do know that we afghans are one of the most beautifull people coz i belive we afghans have a beauty that noone else have. It is just hard to reveal because of our religion and culture.we shouldn’t really get proud just by seeing our naked photos on the websites coz islam has given us more than that to be proud of.
your sister
my best wishes
