The week-long 2014 World Supermodel Pageant starts at The Pearl South Pacific Resort at Pacific Harbour today.

The international beauty pageant will see 28 beautiful young women vying for the crown in the next seven days.

Resort manager Natalie Marletta said the effect of the beauty contest has an economic advantage to the country.

“They will be here for seven days and they will be having photo shoots around the resort. They will be going out to see reefs in Fiji, visit selected schools and in the night time they will be having a Miss Congeniality competition,” Ms Marletta said.

“We organise that for them and we get local communities involved as well so local tour operators get a chance for exposure.

“This is an opportunity for them to be exposed to the international market, a lot of local operators will never get a chance to be on TV in the US and Canada. It’s a great opportunity.”

This is the third consecutive year the resort will host the pageant.

“We have a grand stage this year, something amazing that we have never done before. It is going to look sort of international standard.

“We are getting exposure worldwide,” she said.
