The Miss and Mrs. Chipao pageant is back once again on its sixth edition after a year’s break, but this time, virtually. The grand finale is set for 28 Sept and is organized by Miss Kebaya Malaysia (MMK) led by its founder Dr. Jason Hee, MMK national director Nicole Fe Lynne, and Mrs. Chipao Malaysia 2018 Esther Michael.
In addition to that, this year would also host the return of Little Miss Chipao and Little Mr Culture (Samfu); Mr Culture (Samfu) Malaysia; the Classic Chipao Malaysia pageant; and also the search for both local and international ‘Chipao Ambassadors’.
The competitions are open to all Malaysians and expatriates aged three to 17 for Little Miss Chipao and Little Mr. Culture (Samfu); aged 17 to 35 for Miss Chipao and Mr. Culture (Samfu) Malaysia; 21 to 50 for Mrs Chipao; and aged 50 and above for the Classic Chipao Malaysia pageant.
“The Miss and Mrs. Chipao pageants are meant to send a crucial message to all young women and mothers – that beauty is not defined by one’s looks or the amount of skin that one shows; rather, it is by their self-confidence and inner beauty. These events are also designed to help commercial companies identify suitable ambassadors to represent and promote their respective brands, and also to encourage people to live a healthy lifestyle especially during the Covid-19 pandemic,” said Dr. Jason Hee.
The judges for the pageant include celebrities such as Sabah’s Unduk Ngadau 2021 pageant winner Maya Hejnowska, Miss CosmoWorld founder Carrie Lee, Mrs Malaysia Universe 2013 winner Carol Lee, as well as Malaysia Bumiputera Designer Association (MBDA) founder Bon Zainal and its president Rasta Rashid.
About 100 finalists are expected to participate in the grand finale and will be broadcasted live on Miss Chipao Malaysia’s Facebook page. Prizes worth more than RM10,000 in total, consisting of products and scholarships, await the lucky winners of all these Chinese traditional dress-themed pageants.
