This year’s Miss World 2014 beauty pageant, the 64th, was marred by tragedy after a Honduran beauty queen was found shot dead in a suspected crime of passion days before she was due to take part.
The pageant’s 124 contestants traveled to the Oxford Union society, to discuss whether such competitions still had a place in modern society.
British media reported that some students from Oxford University were disappointed that the event failed to generate a lively debate on the subject.
