Over 15 young ladies, between the ages of 18 and 28, showed up to audition for the Miss Costa Rica beauty pageant. Which one will take the crown from the current monarch Natalia Carvajal?
Each and every one showed up with seemingly perfect hair and makeup. They paraded first in bathing suits and later showed off their looks in dresses and heels. This took place at the Teletica facilities in La Sabana.
They came from San José, Cartago, Heredia, Alajuela, Guanacaste and Limón to participate in the preliminary stage of the contest.
They have various motivations for going for the crown. One, Dolly Sanabria, hopes to overcome her fears and body insecurities. Catalina Freer, comes to take her already promising modeling career to a new level. Paola Chacón hopes winning the contest will shed light on how a beauty queen is a complete package. She works on social welfare projects.
