“I feel lack of support” says Lara Yan about Miss Universe 2018
Autumn of 2018 was rich with beauty contests in Georgia. There were several fashion shows as well, including Tbilisi Fashion Week 2018 and Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week 2018. Now another beauty contest awaits Georgia - Miss Universe 2018. Georgian model Lara Yan will represent the country there.

What does she think about the upcoming event and how is she preparing for the contest? Georgian Journal tells the story.

Lara Yan has always dreamed to live in Tbilisi and it is 3 years
since she has been living in Georgia. “Of course, perspectives in Russia are much larger. I was offered to participate in Miss Russia contest as well, but I used to refuse all these offers. In 2014 I participated in Elite Model Look Georgia. Then I went traveling. Once I visited the agency as a guest. It appeared that they were preparing for Miss Georgia contest and were having castings. I was told to take part in casting. After some hesitation I said yes” – says Lara Yan.

Lara Yan’s career


“My career as a model started when I was 17. I was granted with 9 beauty titles so far” – says Lara Yan. “The last title is runner-up to Miss Georgia 2017. I made my first steps in modeling in Russia, when I was leaving there. I was in a shop trying to find some clothes when a stranger came to me and invited at the casting. The casting was planned after ten days. I arrived there in make-up wearing leather trousers. That was quite funny, because other girls were without make-up.”

What Lara Yan complains about?


Lara Yan is half Armenian and half Georgian. “On the 29th of November I’m flying to Thailand where Miss Universe contest will be held. Because of this contest I quit my job, exercise daily, having dresses sewn. All in all, I try to live in appropriate style.”

Currently Lara Yan lives in Georgia

“I used to work as a make-up artist and sing in bars, but new lifestyle was incompatible with this routine and I quit” – says Lara Yan. “88 contestants take part in Miss Universe. I hope I will succeed”.

What Lara Yan complains about is lack of sponsorship. “Every contestant have their sponsors, designers and so long. Girls take huge bags and even their make-up is sponsored. It is not like that in Georgia. I feel lack of support. I would be glad if people in Georgia knew who represents the country at the contest.”
