"There will no bikini in this year's Miss World pageant to respect our traditional customs and values, This is a sensitive issue in Indonesia. We have discussed it since last year and they have agreed " says Soeratmadjie,from RCTI who are the official broadcaster and local organizer of the event.
 Since Miss World is happening in Indonesia this year...and the country has strong Islamic believes...the famous beach wear category will look a little bit different,this time around.... We are talking the likes of the above and below images....with swim wear designed with beach sarongs,making sure the girls are covered.
 The chairwoman of the Miss World Organization, Julia Morley, confirmed that none of the 137 contestants would wear a bikini.

"Indonesia is designing for us a very beautiful one-piece beachwear, and I'm very happy with them," she told The Associated Press by phone from London, adding that the pageant will include a special beachwear fashion show.

"I don't think Indonesia is the only country that has that culture," Morley said. "But we like to work in the manner respectful to every country, and I cannot see why when you go to somebody's country you should not behave respectfully." (by Yahoo.com)
 Am super anxious to see the design that Indonesia will reveal to the world....maybe it will be adopted afterwards?
If this was your favorite category....sorry...not this year....lol
