This year’s European City of Sport was seen by Petri Bozo, General Director and creator of the Deliart Association and the Miss Globe® Beauty Pageant as the logic place to host a Miss Globe® “Mini Olympics”.

 The Final show was the culmination of near two weeks of cultural and social events including a planting of seeds brought by all contestants from around the world and planted at the Botanical gardens.

 The theme for the Final Show was “Something out of a fairytale” and not only did the contestants not disappoint, so did the judge who awarded the Miss Runway Prize for 2023 to Albania’s Sonia Sallaku - Model, activist and philanthropist Elton Ilirjani.

 Elton’s presence on the stage was commanding with his outfit paying tribute to folklore and fashion - Wearing an outfit created by Albanian Fashion Designer, LILO. The concept for the outfit was a genderless figure of folklore with the outfit comprising “tirqe” trousers from Northern Albania together with “xhubleta” - the historical dress of women from Northern Albania which is today identified as a UNESCO World Heritage site. Atop was a silver painted mannequin’s bust combining both a male and female breast and on his arms were wings representing the black eagles which are the national symbol of Albania.
