Miss International 2015 Edymar Martinez will soon grace the finals of Indonesia’s most prestigious beauty pageant – the Puteri Indonesia contest. The winner of the said contest will soon compete at Miss Universe 2016 while the first and second runners-up will be sent to Miss International and Miss Supranational respectively.
The Puteri Indonesia contest is one of the “must-watch” national pageants in recent years due to its series of placements of its winners at the Miss Universe pageant, having placed in the Top 15/16 from 2013 to 2015. The pageant also produced a Miss International semifinalist in 2014, when Elfin Pertiwi Rappa made it to the Top 10. In 2013, Cok Istri Krisnanda Widani of Bali got the 3rd Runner-up placement at Miss Supranational.
Edymar will be the first Miss International winner to take the centerstage in the pageant. The most anticipated part of her attendance is when she will be at the centerstage wearing the traditional kebaya.
Puteri Indonesia, literally, Princess of Indonesia was officially established in 1992. It features beautiful women from across Indonesia – from Kalimantan province to Irian Jaya. This year’s contest will be held in Jakarta Convention Center on February 19. Missosology will bring you live updates of the event.
