    The Drive to Find True Beauty with Purpose

     

    In the beauty and fashion world, there is no end to the amount of gorgeous

    models you can find. However, the cross over to the pageant world is much

    more challenging and unique. These women are not just models with a

    gorgeous face, great body, with the ability to pose properly for that one

    incredible photo. Pageant queens have a sense of purpose and drive for

    something much larger than themselves. Because they all represent a

    platform, a purpose, and follow through with community service and public

    speaking, they are more than just models. They are mentors. Understanding

    just how much goes into the creation of a successful pageant is best known

    from a previous pageant queen. Angela Posillico has a long standing history

    working in the pageant systems in multiple facets. She has over 27 years of

    cosmetic experience, working with almost every major line in the country. She

    was even a trainer for Lancome for 12 years. Working at a makeup counter,

    she would find pageant competitors frequently came in requesting assistance with makeup. At one point, one of the competitors hired her to attend the pageant and be her makeup artist for the course of the competition. This put her foot in the door and she continued working pageants as a makeup artist.

    With a Masters in Operatic Studies, she graduated from Juilliard School of Music and started her adult life as a successful and professional singer. Occasionally performers would not show for pageants or would cancel at the last minute. With her tremendous background and training, Angela

                                                                                        started to perform at pageants as well. It is no great surprise                                                                                        that working behind the scenes, stepping on stage as a                                                                                                performer, and with her incredible beauty, that Angela would                                                                                        eventually begin competing as well. She won multiple large                                                                                          scale pageants over the years such as Greatest Legs in New                                                                                        Jersey sponsored by Budweiser, Mrs. New Jersey Globe                                                                                              1996, and won the Ms. Morganville New Jersey USA pageant                                                                                      of 1997.

                                                                                        With all this experience under her belt, before you knew it,                                                                                            Angela was directing. However, it wasn’t until her big move to                                                                                      Florida that her vision really revealed itself. Angela noticed                                                                                            that there was a HUGE Latin presence in Florida but no                                                                                                crossover to the American market. She endeavored to change this and created the Ms. Latina International Pageant where women who had a least a 25% Latin background were able to compete. But by 2007, she sought out to give women without a Latin background a prestigious system and created the Ms. International World. Both systems compete over a 3 day and 2 night cruise to the Bahamas.

    Angela is meticulous about her pageants. They are glamorous, fast paced, highly competitive, and well thought out. Planning takes almost an entire year. Actor, model, MC, and host, Lamont Easter, was contacted almost a year ago regarding hosting the pageants. His passion for community and love for volunteerism made him an especially perfect choice to co-host the event with Angela. Not only is he gorgeous and charismatic but he was able to recognize how hard each of the contestants worked to not only get there but to get their platforms across as well.

     

    Lamont spends his free time advocating for autism, especially young

    adults that are transitioning to independence. He attends soup kitchens

    for the homeless and has participated in “Sleep Out America”. Lamont

    is even producing a film called “Blood” to bring awareness to invisible

    illness. With such a generous heart, he was able to quickly recognize

    this common trait amongst all the beautiful ladies competing for the

    crown. “It’s not all pomp and circumstance, it’s about having a voice.

    ” Lamont enjoyed the experience and was tremendously impressed

    with each of the girls. He also raved about Angela’s attention to detail.

    So many activities are packed into the 3 day competition. Nothing left

    to chance and the entire event was marked with positivity and energy.

    Christian De La Rosa has been working closely with Angela for months to bring this classy and stunning event to fruition. As cruise staff and an Assistant Cruise Director for four years, he had recently been promoted to Cruise Director of the Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line a year ago. This was his first pageant to coordinate and he met with Angela every two weeks to work on planning. From set design, to lights, to timing and scheduling, Christian was ecstatic to see the end results of all the meticulous planning. In fact, he was scheduled not to be aboard the cruise line during the competition but was so excited to see it all come together that he boarded as a passenger and used his vacation to volunteer during the pageant. He helped set things up, keep things moving, and be a support to the girls. He remarked at how impressed he was at the end with each of the girls, their teamwork, and the amount of work put in. Angela indicated that Christian was simply amazing during the entire experience and that this was one of the most successful pageants to date.

    The event is packed with a Welcome Party, swimwear competition, interviews, and photoshoots, the Parade of Costumes (which the passengers just loved) and of course, crowning. To be apart of this remarkable event and compete for their crown, contestants initially contacted Angela either through one of her social media platforms, email, or attended one of the pageant castings. Qualifications have to be met, such as community service requirements, along with a biography and photo submissions. Once chosen, they signup, pay the deposits, and their banner are received.

    The newly crowned queens are able to continue to represent the system and their platforms at multiple events throughout the year, such as The Winterfest Boat Parade, Asian Trade Show, Swim Week, and Miami Fashion Week, as well as countless other opportunities. They also are able to help give back to community with charitable events.
