Hungarian beauty Viktória Jázmin wore a cheap Zara dress on the final of Miss Universe in Israel last year. That was followed by an international public outcry, even though later it became clear that her handmade dress did not arrive in time. That is why she had to represent Hungary in the Zara dress.
As we reported before, the Hungarian contestant faced serious backlash for wearing a Zara dress during the stage appearance at the international Miss Universe pageant. She would have worn a dress designed by Richard Alexander Atelier, but the designer could not enter the country due to the pandemic. The dress could have been sent to Israel, but the three-piece creation also had to be altered to fit the contestant. That is why Viktória had no choice but to order a Zara dress online.
Blikk writes that Ms Jázmin can now lose her crown, but she no longer wants to be ashamed of what happened in Israel in December.
She was forbidden to speak about why she represented Hungary in a cheap Zara dress
in the international final of the contest. Though it became clear only days later that the original cloth did not arrive in time, Ms Jázmin had to remain silent in the issue.
“I would like to hold the Miss Universe Hungary title because that is not only a crown but everything my father taught me: honour, respect and kindness”
– she told Blikk only a few days after she shared the story in RTL Klub’s magazine, Fókusz. However, by talking, she took a huge risk. The organisers of the international Miss Universe pageant consider she broke her contract. The successful Hungarian model’s new management, on the other hand, does not consider the original contract binding.
They said that after they took the case of Jázmin, they wanted to negotiate with the organisers of the contest. Their goal was to find a solution and clear what happened in Israel. However, they were not open for discussion and forbade Ms Jázmin to share what happened or hire management.
An employee of the team now working to help Jázmin added that they would like to do everything to terminate her “slave contract.”
They already hired lawyers who said it violates Viktória Jázmin’s rights and freedom of speech. Therefore, they regard it as null and void. Furthermore, they took the necessary steps to help Viktória regain her freedom. They added that the international license owner of the Miss Universe knows about the scandal because she wrote them the details.
Interestingly, Blikk tried to reach the Hungarian license owner but found only a seat service provider. The company said they could not send a contact but added Blikk could send their questions via mail.
