Miss Belarus Maria Vasilevich stuns with glamorous selfie as she scoops beauty pageant prize

This is the 20-year-old stunner who has just been crowned the most beautiful woman in Belarus – and she celebrated with a selfie.

Maria Vasilevich was awarded the title of Miss Belarus 2018 in lavish ceremony in the capital city of Minsk last week.

The contestants had to take part in five catwalk events, including one in which they wore traditional Belarusian costumes.

On being named the winner, Miss Vasilevich was presented with a stunning crown made of white gold. She was also given a brand new car – a white Geely Atlas SUV – which the big-hearted brunette has already donated to an orphanage.

Miss Vasilevich is a student at the Belarusian State Economic University who has flown a plane and dreams of one day becoming a TV anchor.

She was very cagey about her private life, refusing to reveal whether or not she currently had a boyfriend.

"Let there be intrigue," was all she would say when pressed on the subject.

Her role as Miss Belarus means that she has had to agree not to marry within the next two years.

The theme of the 2018 Miss Belarus competition was the four elements: earth, air, fire and water. Earth represented being connected to one's roots, air with a love of the arts, fire represented an active lifestyle, and water with a gentle character.
