2017 中華小姐環球大賽 Miss Cosmos Pageant Europe

My Affection For The Pageant

Beauty pageants were something desperately serious for some of us. We read all newspapers and magazines to know about the information of the ladies who had joined. Moreover, we looked forward to the TV show, discussed who was the most beautiful girl, who has the best body shape, who is the wisest girl among all contestants. It was a great influence on our generation about the aesthetics. All little girls tried to make postures front of the mirror; we pretended to host a pageant. Moreover, the shower time was the best moment to show our talent, singing. We all became elegant gentlewomen.

When I received the invitation to join 2017 Miss Cosmos Pageant that was hosted by PhoenixCNE, all childhood memories about pageants came back to my mind. (Wertheim Village and Ingolstadt Village are the biggest sponsors of the pageant in 2017.) I would like to share with you some thoughts after attending the event; moreover, the impression of the new generation ladies. I also filmed and edited a short video to show you the occasion.

選美的情愫

「選美」這兩個字在小時候可不得了,那時候最有名的選舉就是中國小姐。在電視廣告、報章雜誌上看到相關消息、總決賽預告之後,平時不好八卦的母親也加入美容美髮院的討論,同時不忘在日曆寫下選美實況的轉播時刻。最後入圍進入總決賽幾名佳麗的臉蛋、名字更是被廣為渲染,誰最上鏡頭、誰的身材最為苗條均勻、哪位的儀態談吐有條理氣質,都是熱門的茶餘飯後話題。

那股盛況可是空前絕後,對我們這一輩份的審美觀影響頗大。小女孩們偷偷地在鏡子前裝模作樣,搔首弄姿,玩辦家家酒時也加入了機智問答的橋段,而洗澡時擁有最佳回音環境的時候,就是個人才藝的表演時間。我們抬頭挺胸、坐姿端正,說話捲舌發音標準、面帶微笑,本是插著腰大聲喝斥夥伴的舉動,都成了蓮花指的恭恭敬敬、優雅有禮。

收到鳳凰衛視歐洲台的邀請(法蘭克福購物村Wertheim Village以及慕尼黑購物村Ingolstadt Village為本屆環球大賽歐洲賽區最大贊助商),參加2017年在法蘭克福Offenbach舉辦的中華小姐環球大賽歐洲選區的決選盛會時,那段逐漸模糊卻精彩的幼時回憶也慢慢浮上腦海、津津有味。再回首,這段時間裡,我們的腰桿子軟了、脖頸也都垂了呀。

這次觀賞選美決賽除了一睹海外華人女子外在的美貌與內在的智慧,也同時讓我對新一代的海外中華女子有不同的感觀印象。這篇文章將以選拔賽中的各個橋段與你們分享,同時也剪接了一支短片,讓讀者們可以更身歷其境體會盛會中的情境。一起往下閱讀,希望你們喜歡。

About the Miss Cosmos Pageant

2017 is the 15th year of Miss Cosmos Pageant since 2003. Each year, ladies from five areas, Europe, America, Australia, South Asia and China join different local selections, and then the ultimate girls will go to China for the champion. This year (2017), there were more than 400 young girls applied for the Pageant in Europe Area; and only 12 ladies entered the Europe final contest.

During the cultivation, the girls got along with the group day and night. They showed not only their personality front of each other but also cameras and the judges. They learned how to handle the relationships and all situations; moreover, they grew the view. On the day of the Europe final, judges picked up the best photogenic award, the best friendship award and the best online popularity award; also, the top three for the final champion in China.

關於中華小姐環球大賽

從2003年至今,中華小姐環球大賽已經舉行了第十五個年頭;從歐洲、美洲、澳大利亞、南亞洲以及中國本土五個地區所選出來的前三位優勝者,再參加總決賽競爭出全球中華小姐的總冠軍。 這次在歐洲選區初選中,一共有超過四百位海外華人女子報名,一路淘汰直至最後推上舞台的有十二位佳麗。

從開始至結束的這段培訓時間裡,所有女孩們遠離家鄉以團體生活方式朝夕相處;在彼此、評審還有相隨的攝影鏡頭前,經由磨合以及彼此互動展現出最真實的個性與內在資質。不只學習了最佳應對進退的態度,也同時增長了國際觀。歐洲區決賽這天,評審們將從站上舞台的十二位佳麗中選出最上鏡頭獎、最佳網路票選,以及最佳人緣獎三位女孩;最重要的,是選出前三名,前進全球總冠軍的舞台。

The New Generation Beauty Pageant

Before, we could only watch the pageants via TV shows or the broadcasts. We felt tense about the result. Now, through the internet, we watched the live video and received the newest updates. Moreover, the PhoenixCNE hosts led the audience into the backstage and showed us the scenes. The audience even could vote their best lady online.

By the way, I would like to introduce one of the hosts, Chuan Tian, who is the champion of 2010 Miss Cosmos. She comes from Harbin; some years later had studied Fashion Design in London. As her appearance, slim body shape and short hair style, her personality is also straight forward. Now, she serves as one of the hosts in the PhoenixCNE channel. Through the position, she develops good skills of speaking. She is not only a beautiful woman but also a wise lady that every woman would like to be.

新世代選美

以前選美大會透過轉播得以讓電視機前的我們目睹場場實況表演;坐在電視前,我們莫不神情緊張,尤其機智問答時刻,恨不得鑽進螢幕中在回答佳麗耳邊說上悄悄話、給予意見。如今,透過網路,現場的即時氣氛更是可以分秒傳達至我們眼前。

這場由鳳凰衛視主辦的中華小姐選拔,透過官網與微博同步直播,除了有秀上精彩的表演與選拔盛況,另外也由鳳凰衛視的主持人帶著大家走繞進後台了解花絮。不只如此,透過線上互動,讀者與觀眾可以直接票選出心中最佳人選。不過,也因為透過網路直播,事前的準備必須更精準確實,才有辦法在快速的傳遞中播出最完美的不同面向。

這次歐洲賽區的主持人之一,田川,不僅是2010中華小姐環球大賽冠軍,同時也擔任鳳凰衛視節目主播。畢業於服裝設計學系的田川蓄著一頭招牌俐落短髮,一如她的外型,來自哈爾濱的她個性爽朗大方,說話直快。自2010當選中華小姐冠軍之後,便在鳳凰衛視擔任節目主播,累積豐厚的主持經驗,不僅在肢體語言上落落大方,說話口條更是清晰,不只是照本宣科,更可以從對話中揣摩出她生活歷練的智慧;真是一位令人喜愛、內外兼具的現代女性,讓人直想看齊。

The Principles

The last 12 ladies of the Europe Area are all born after 1990, which means they are young and live in a new generation. Some of them are born in Europe due to the family reason, some of them moved to Europe for study. They have not only beautiful appearance but also wisdom temperament. The quality and the appearance are both important criterions of the pageant. From those 12 girls, I realized that the organizer invested attention on this point.

內外兼修的選評

這次的中華小姐環球大賽歐洲選區裡,最後入圍的十二位佳麗全都是九零後,平均年齡在二十五歲以下。在這些女孩當中,有些人因為家庭因素從小生長在歐洲,有的則是遠赴歐洲進修唸書,在如此快速牽動的環境中,各個都擁有青春燦爛的心,卻也同時是高學歷、有涵養的新一代女性。

內外兼修正是這屆中華小姐環球大賽選評過程中的最重要的依據準則。當然。人品個性或許無法在短時間之內一探全貌,還需要長時間相處;不過美貌、智慧則可以透過相由心生的不變法則加以印證。從這群女孩身上,的確可以看到主辦單位的用心,讓選美不只是專注在外貌上的評分,同時也對於內在涵養有所關注。

Q & A Section

After the Halftime show, it was the tensest moment, the question and answer part. Through the Q & A process, we understood how each girl cares about current events or if she can present her opinion without tweaking. I appreciated how the organizer arranged the Q & A. They picked two girls randomly and let both answered a topic from the judge. After sharing their ideas, two sides had to debate and asked each other questions from the opponent’s opinion. The whole process showed the advantages and disadvantages of each girl about their spot response.

Some girls immediately impressed the judges. They knew how to express their thoughts, at the same time, asked questions wisely. Being modest is not necessary for the moment. That was an exciting section.

機智答辯

中場表演後,接著便是每場選美最令人屏息期待的機智問答時刻。透過機智問答可以了解每位女孩對於時事的關心度、思緒脈絡是否清晰、是否可以清楚大方地表達個人意見。今年的選拔賽特別安排所有入選佳麗針對特定問題表態作答,再由各自對立的意見中互相提問答辯;這又可以更進一步透過互相交鋒了解每位女孩的企圖心與胸懷。

六個問題中有兩項問答令人格外有感觸,都想自己搶了麥克風上台發表感想呢:

  • 寧願當大海中的小魚或是小河中的大魚(對應於職場中公司與職位的選擇)
  • 現今社會中,男人或是女人辛苦(社會對於男人女人各自的責任與義務的刻板印象)

六對佳麗中有幾位女孩的臨場反應、口條與表達能力的確使人留下深刻印象。可以準確地闡述自己的想法,同時舉生活中的範例佐證,當對方辯友論述時也仔細聆聽,並且在答辯時抓出語病反擊。這反擊也得有技巧,必須在謙虛的情懷下做出積極性的辯答;無謂的退讓當好人在這個時候可是派不上用場的。真是一場過癮振奮人心的選美中場。

Do we still have an absurd idea about Beauty Pageant that beautiful girls are not clever? From this occasion, I noticed PhoenixCNE proved to step forward on the one hand; on the contrary, they reminded us about the old-time elegance of ladies. Moreover, through the event, all young girls who took part of the process gained a valuable experience that can not be replaced.

Each girl or woman, we should know about ourselves, no matter the appearance or the personality; enjoy life and give the best to it. We all walk on the red carpet of our own.

對於選美,我們是否還停留在過往保舊的觀念中,認為選美的出發點過於物化女性?認為漂亮的女性徒有一張美麗的面孔?從這場選美競賽中,我看到了主辦單位鳳凰衛視在創新的步伐中不忘記保有女性優雅、內外兼備的心性與人品的關鍵評選觀點。另外,所有來自歐洲擁有不同背景的華人佳麗,在互動交流過程中不僅開拓了視野,也透過培訓在青春的年月中留下無法取代的寶貴經驗。

每位女孩(女人)如果可以認知自己不管是外在的美貌或是內向的品性,真心喜愛自己、認真努力,盡最大的努力發揮專長,那麼我們都可以以最燦爛迷人的姿態走在人生中的紅毯上。

I do not wear heels since years. For the momentous occasion, I styled myself in a mix and match way, a satin dress with one pair of casual shoes. Moreover, the fish net socks was a touch of icing on the cake.

已經多年不穿跟鞋的我,出席這場盛會以混搭的方式穿出自己的時尚感;緞面的連身裙隱約地露出一小段網襪,再踏上偷偷增高的休閒鞋,也可以輕鬆打造出擁有自己風格的造型。
