Affectionate hugs

Being far from their families, friends, environment, in order to attend a beauty contest, an atmosphere of melancholy is created and often they search a friend in whom to count, and normally they always find her, I mean, one of the contest competitors.

Here are the "most "lovable" photos of the contests.

From left to right, photo 1, Barbara Palacios from Venezuela (MU 1986) is congratulated by Christy Fichtner from the USA in Miss Universe 1986, photo 2, Cecilia Bolocco of Chile (MU 1987) and Miss Italy Roberta Capua hug themselves emotionally just after knowing who the new Miss Universe 1987 was, photo 3, Lupita Jones of Mexico (MU 1987) hugged effusively by a fan.
