On Sept. 4, Kyiv hosted a spectacular display of homegrown beauty – the Miss Ukraine pageant. This year’s event attracted some pretty famous world celebrities.

Oleksandr Onyshchenko, Ukrainian businessman and sponsor of the event, invited Pamela Anderson, actress Elizabeth Hurley, actor Jean-Claude Van Damme, model Snejana Onopka, French actress Ornella Muti and other big shots.

Kateryna Zakharchenko, 20, of Odesa, took the prize as the most gorgeous lady of Ukraine.

Rumor has it that the winner was a late entrant, registering only a few days before the contest, and Ukrainska Pravda’s tabloid version reported that Zakharchenko was spotted with sponsor Onyshchenko in Monaco.





At any rate, Zahkarchenko will represent Ukraine in the Miss World beauty pageant on Oct. 30 in China.

Singers Iryna Bilyk, Anna Sedokova and Chris Norman entertained the crowd during the show.
