LOS ANGELES, July 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- You've seen the winners of Miss America and Miss Universe; are you ready for a new type of pageant winner? Miss Global 2013 strives to broaden the definition of beauty in the 21st century.
Presented by the Miss Global Organization in association with KimLoi Media, the inaugural pageant kicks off on August 3, 2013.
