Royal holidays. A resident of Alexandrov won the title at the All-Russian beauty contest

Alexandrov resident Maria Tarasova became the third vice-miss at the All-Russian beauty and talent contest “Miss and Mrs. Great Russia”. The final of the review was held in St. Petersburg in August this year. 46 participants from all over the country took part in the prestigious event. Maria represented our region and did it very worthy. She herself called the incident a little “royal vacation” and now she remembers this time with joy.

– We had five days to prepare the fashion show and the choreographic number, many participants, each with a crown on her head. Every winner knows the taste of victory. These emotions of struggle were felt from the first minute of the meeting. We lived two people in a room at the Moscow Hotel. We had a gorgeous view of the Neva from the windows, – says Maria.

Maria recalls that she had to rehearse every day. Classes were held in the conference hall of the hotel, everyone worked with teachers, put numbers on the final. And in the evening, time was allotted for preparing a presentation about oneself, family and the region. Despite the busy schedule, the participants found time for a boat trip, a city tour, karaoke, and a meeting with famous bloggers. And all this in an atmosphere of struggle for victory.

– I can not say that we became friends, we competed. And this struggle was emotional, internal, understandable only to us.

On the day of the final, Maria says, there was no time and no reason to worry. She was well aware that the competition would end and that it was necessary to concentrate her efforts as much as possible. The task for the morning looked simple: to collect internal resources, tune in to work and give 100%. Now she can confidently say: everything that was planned was achieved.

– It is important for me that I do not become disappointed in myself, therefore the title – the third vice-misses of the Great Russia – 2022 competition is a great achievement for me. Among such a number of participants, it was not easy to achieve this. Competitors were no less worthy and no less prepared. There was not a single participant who came just to participate, everyone wanted to win! But… winners are not judged, and I brought my title and crown to my hometown, which I am very proud of.

Now the beauty from Alexandrov is 40 years old. She does not hide her age. Maria is the mother of four children. The family for her is both the rear and the support. As a child, she dreamed of building a large orphanage. This, the woman is sure, led her to what is now happening in life.

– Yes, I’m not a beauty from the covers of fashion magazines, I don’t have blue eyes and you can find a lot of flaws in me, but that’s not the point. For my age, I have achieved a lot, the most important thing is my family, four children. It’s hard for me to imagine what other man, besides my husband, could also support me in all endeavors. I really built a big orphanage, only my own. And despite this, I find time for everything that my inner state requires. For work, self-realization, sports, travel and new discoveries. One of these discoveries for herself was participation in a beauty contest, says the third vice-miss.

Maria Tarasova from Alexandrov won the title at the Miss and Mrs Great Russia beauty pageant. Among the competitors were representatives of 46 regions from all over the country. And among them, the mother of four children from the Vladimir region definitely did not get lost.

Maria believes that every woman should find an inner resource in herself and go through such a competition. In her opinion, the world will change after entering the stage. You will never be the same as before! Yes, when she first saw the invitation to participate in the show, she just smiled and did not focus on it. But after a couple of days I returned to the video and watched it to the end. And then it caused her not only a smile, but also nostalgia.

– Once twenty years ago I already participated in a beauty contest. It was college years and I lost to my best friend. I was no longer offended by the fact that I did not take first place, but by the fact that I lost to her. Plus, I just regretted that everything was over and our friendly company of participants would no longer get together at rehearsals. Some time passed, but my head was spinning: competition, casting, new emotions. I decided to call a friend and, having come from afar, try to find out: what, how and why. Having found out the essence of the question, the only thing she answered was: “You need to go there!” And it clicked in my head: it’s true! I called the girl who organized the contest, unknown to me at that time, to find out about the casting.

The final of the regional competition was held in November last year. Maria prepared for the stage for two months. She was engaged in choreography, defile, acting. The participants of the beauty contest had an endless number of master classes, meetings with a psychologist and a numerologist, as well as photo shoots and karaoke trips. They practiced yoga, learned to paint with acrylics, twisted noodles and wove New Year’s wreaths. So many skills and abilities that each of the participants acquired in two months, few people master in a lifetime. Simply because there is usually not enough time for this.

The final day flew by like a flash. Although I was on stage 20 years ago, this time I went out with the feeling that I was a star. This is not ambition, I just felt some energy from the inside and understood that I was 200% ready. I carefully chose outfits, prepared a creative competition, attracted gymnast girls, and selected music for a long time. There are many of us, many nominations, many congratulations and gifts. But I absolutely knew where to look and how to smile broadly, so the expectations while the girls were rewarded seemed endless. And now they have already announced the second vice-miss, the first, they did not name only me. A scene from The Bodyguard came to mind when Whitney Houston sang alone on stage with the camera panning over her. It seemed to me that I was also standing in the light of spotlights and the whole hall was waiting for the moment when he would explode from emotions. When I was declared the “Queen of Great Russia – 2021”, goosebumps ran through my body. The whole auditorium turned their attention to me, and whoever came to cheer for whom that day, everyone applauded me, ”recalls Maria.

After the victory at the regional stage, active preparations for the final in St. Petersburg began. It took more than six months for everything. It was necessary to solve not only the issues of their participation, but also to organize the affairs of the house. When, even if for a while, you leave four children and a husband at once, you have to think about this. After all, Maria is not just a beauty and now the vice-mrs of the beauty contest “Miss and Mrs. Great Russia”, she is also a mother of many children with a big house, which she has dreamed of all her life.
