In major beauty pageants, there is one interesting issue that makes a candidate place and can make their countries proud. This is the issue regarding luck that can make a candidate reach the closest possible win in major beauty pageants. As a candidate, luck has been playing an important role to ensure that the candidate's chances increase while they are bannering the flag of their country. This is especially for candidates who are struggling to keep their pace as one of the most dominant candidates in the pageant world. This issue is important for any candidate because it seeks to improve their standing, especially during the coronation night.
One of the most interesting issues is the color yellow for beauty pageants. Yellow color has been considered as the lucky shade for candidates joining in major pageants in several international stages. There were several candidates who joined major beauty pageants who were lucky enough to be included in the semifinalists. As a candidate, they used this particular luck for them to clinch the highest possible rankings during the coronation night of the event. There were candidates who became lucky enough to be included in the final five or even three spots. However, there are ladies who failed to use their luck as they landed only in top 15 during the finals night.
Why the Yellow gown is chosen as a lucky color for the candidates when joining an international beauty pageant? This is because the color has a striking appeal to the audience, especially to the judges. The striking yellow makes a shocking appeal to the observers who are able to recognize the real beauty of the gown. When the judge and the audience see the yellow gown, they feel that there is something striking their attention to becoming more drawn to the candidate. The color can easily stimulate the minds and the eyes of the audiences, which has been responsible for ensuring everybody's entertainment on the stage.
Unlike the white color that represents purity, yellow directly strikes the attention of anyone who is just looking at it. The candidate who has been wearing the yellow gown was usually not part of the list for pageant fanatics and analysts. The yellow-colored gown may not have been always used by the candidates in major beauty pageants. Once they wear it, they will make sure they will reach the top during the coronation night. However, not all predictions are always right because there are still candidates who make surprises during the final show. These are candidates who showed a relentless performance out of luck. Each trim, they are always included that makes pageant fanatic shocked.
