A visit to Moscow is incomplete without a tour of the famous Red Square. The place, also called Krasnaya Ploshchad, was visited by the ravishing Miss Universe 2013 contestants. The girls walked down Red Square and admired the awe-inspiring beauty that blossomed in Oct.
Miss Universe contestants dressed in wintery attire toured the Kremlin, Red Square and Bolshoi Theatre. The excited girls loved the tour and posed for photographs every now and then. Miss Philippines Ariella Arida and Miss India Manasi Moghe posed for a photograph together, and they looked all pretty. Ariella "Ara" Arida is all set to take the Miss Universe 2013 crown to the Philippines, as she is one of the top contenders. If she wins the pageant this year, Philippines will join the league with India for winning both Miss World and Miss Universe competition in a year.
Earlier this year, Megan Young was crowned Miss World, and the Philippines rejoiced for her win. Ara Arida is under tremendous pressure to win this pageant for her nation.
At the Red Square, the contestants were filmed for the "Welcome to Moscow" film which will be telecasted during the finals. One of the perks of being a Miss Universe contestant is that you get to visit awesome places like Red Square and Kremlin.
Russia is hosting the Miss Universe pageant for the first time in the history of the competition.
Mel B and Thomas Roberts will be the hosts on Nov. 9, the day when the results for the event will be announced. We reported earlier that Thomas Roberts, courageously, declared that he will host Miss Universe 2013 despite Russia's fearful anti-gay laws.
EMIN and Panic! At The Disco have been roped in to perform at the main event. EMIN has collaborated with Miss Universe 2012 Olivia Culpo in the past for one of his music videos.
