Miss of the Village (and Her Stylist)
“Miss of The Village” is a Croatian Beauty Contest organized by www.seljaci.org.
Young women apply annually by submitting photographs, and are voted by viewers throughout Croatia. The winner is photographed in the act of peeling corn, becoming a symbol of harvest beauty, memorialized on 20,000 rural calendars. Recent winners are seen here with and without the official “Miss of the Village” stylist!
