The 60th Miss International beauty pageant made headlines in January after Miss International director Stephen Diaz confirmed in a live Missosology Beauty Talks session that the contest will take place in the first week of November 2021 in Yokohama, Japan. However, people’s attention were drawn to the announcement that the Miss International pageant will stick to its previous age requirement of 18 t 28 years old. The announcement definitely had an impact among national organzations.
