Miriam George, Miss Egypt 2005

Miriam George, Miss Egypt 2005

This year the crown belongs to Miriam George. An intelligent beautiful young woman. Miriam is very natural and a nice person. She is 18 years old and she studies business administration in Egypt.

She will represent Egypt in miss world this year.

She has a huge potential and I think that there is not doubt that she is coming back with a lot of titles. Miriam is a true beauty and she is a sweet young lady...

I wish her best of luck and I hope she represents Egypt in the same way Heba did!

    i dont know her, but Heba the one from last year i saw her interview for miss world and i was ashamed! she was horrible and only passes for pretty under the right lighting and make up.
    worst of all she spoke HORIBLY!!!! Marie Jose was so much better
    anyway i hope Miriam does a better job.

    I think Nancy Ajram is cute and those clips and songs really suit her, only she can do 'akhasmak ah'. But I think Haifa Wehbe is the prettiest of them all and her songs are fantastic. She makes you sit up and take notice of her till the end. I don't get sick of her, she is very interesting, she is what women want to be - gorgeus! Good luck to them. I don't like Ruby and I don't like Pascal Mishalani, she should stop singing.

    It's a good sign that Egypt is making beauty pageants of that standard for the second year in a row. The previous few other pageants weren't that high profile with queens that could be qualified as pretty at best.
    Heba was gorgeous as far as I am concerned and though Miriam represents less the ethnic Egyptian type that Heba embodies more, I really think she is a beauty with so much class.
    Maybe she won't be a big hit in international competitions but I think it's a good step forward for Egypt on this level.

    hi marcella,

    Its not the second time for Egypt to make a Miss competition.
    Egypt make the Miss competition since 1950.

    And not only Miss Egypt.

    We also make Miss Alex - Miss Teen Alex - Miss best Model - and what ever ...
    so next time before u write any nonsense , go and try to get some information.

    THERE GOES MARCELLA AGAIN. CAN SHE EVER MAKE A COMMENT WITHOUT MENTIONING RACE AND ETHNIC SOMETHING OR THE OTHER. ITS A SHAME THAT ANYONE IN THIS DAY AND AGE CAN STILL MAKE A COMMENT ABOUT ETHNIC TYPES. EVERYONE HAS INTERBRED AND INTERMARRIED AND INTEREVERYTHING ELSE THAT YOU CANNOT SAY ANYMORE THAT THIS IS AN EGYPTIAN LOOK AND THIS IS A LEBANESE LOOK AND THIS IS A KHALEEJEE LOOK. GO TO EGYPT AND YOU SEE PPL FROM THE DARKEST SHADES TO THE LIGHTEST BUT THEY ARE ALL EGYPTIANS.

    I THINK MARCELLA NEEDS TO WAKE UP FROM THE YEAR 5000 BC AND JOIN THE 21st CENTURY CAUSE THE GIRL'S GOT POTENTIAL, SHE IS WELL SPOKEN AND HAS ONE OR TWO BRAIN CELLS BUT HER RACISM IS HOLDING HER BACK. MARCELLA IF YOU NEED HELP SWEETHEART TO BREAK FREE FROM YOUR CHAINS AND TO JOIN THE NORMAL SOCIETY, JUST ASK FOR IT AND WE WILL HELP YOU.

    actually marcelle i dont think that the last two competitions were the best. i think the best girls who won Miss Egypt are dalia el beheiry, sara shaheen, kareen fahmy, and ofcourse georgina (cant remember second name) who won the Miss World in the 1950's

  1. menmen

    hi just correcting what i said earlier. the egyptian who won Miss World was Antigone Constanda in 1954.

    To menmen,

    The Lebanese who won the Miss World, her name is Georigna Rezik, and she won in the 1970s, not 50s.

    Georgina Rizk is the Lebanes woman who won MISS UNIVERSE in 1971

    And I still can't understand why people on this site keep MISREADING ME!
    I mean JESUS!
    I know that Egypt used to elect beauty queens but lately it was on an on and off basis due to the Islamist influence on the country. I merely pointed out to the ORGANIZATION AND LEVEL of the pageant that where much high profile than the last years! So Nadine and Dina try to read well before YOU TALK NONESENSE.

    Kan fee a7la menha bel contest!
    I think Miss Egypt should represent the true egytian style (which is more like being dark with nice lips and somehow streched eyes) like ZiZi!!!

    Yeah Christie, I think you're right and if u read what Marcelle wrote u'd totally agree about the whole Ethnic. People, u are taking stuff sensitively and u shouldn't be that tightpants when it comes to mention Egypt. I understand nobody would allow anybody to underestimate his/her own country but read carefully and try to understand that the person writing with a good spirit and means no harm. and MOI, stop giving lectures meshaan allah...Wajja3ett Rasi! =P

    Ruby should be crowned Miss Egypt coz she really looks EGYPTIAN. Its right that we're united as arabs but there's special features for each and every country...

    Thank you Omar and Christy for corroborating my theory.
    We all know that each country on earth has it's ethnic type, which is not a racist concept at all, as I believe that each race has its own beauty and features.
    The danger of "Pan-arabism" is assuming that all arab-speaking countries have the same descent and should all look alike, which is erroneous, as Arabic is a language and the Ethnic Arabs are the natives of the Gulf. For instance a Syrian from Aleppo is mainly blonde with blue eyes where a Sudani is of African race.
    I think racism in Egypt dates back to the early days of the Cinema where major roles where granted to non-Egyptian types, that is to blonde or European type actor and actresses, that also happened to be mainly of direct foreing descent. Here are some examples: Nadia Loutfi is from a Polish mother, Mariam Fakhreddine from a Hungarian Mother, Laila Mourad a Polish Jew, Laila Taher from Circassian Descent, Farid Sawki and Hussein and Mustafa Fahmi who are too either from Turkish-Circassian Descent, Rushi Abaza from an Italian mother etc...
    The Reak Egyptian type with darker skin, thicker lips and black hair (which is very beautiful in my regard) has always been relegated to actors of secondary roles or even to the roles of maids, butlers and janitors (Same thing is Scene in Mexican soap operas where "White" actors are the stars and true dark Mexicans are the maids or the vilains).
    Even in recent TV and cinema, Egyptian type actresses such as Fardos Abdel Hamid, Aida Riad and Sawssan Badr for instance never made it to stardom, where that place has always been reserved yet again for actresses of European descent (Mervat Amine is of a Scottish mother, Laila Alwi from a Greek Mother, Nelly a 100 percent Armenian) (And by the way as her name shows Antigone Costanda Miss EGYPT and Miss World 1954 is a Greek who lives in Egypt, thus not representing Egyptian beauty).
    Though these actresses are gorgeous and very in tune with their Egyptian identity, I think we should see more of real ethnic egyptians.
    I think in the Middle East there is the "complex" of "whiter is better" which is not true. Heba el Sissy is for instance a gorgeous ethnic beauty. And in this year's pageant Fatma Khalil was a fine representative of true Egyptian beauty.
    I merely think we should see more of these people on TV and in the Cinema and Catwalks, as I really believe that darker women are more sexy and attractive than their fairer counterparts.

    hi marcella how are you? although i agree with you that people here in the arab world tend to think that whiter is better, i dont agree with you in what you said about egyptian cinema. in the 1940's or even earlier then that most of the roles in the egyptian cinema were given to turks, most of whom are not known at all. and i'm talking about really old movies. and some of the actors even had broken arabic. after the revolution happened egyptians started taking the roles. i dont think the actors you mentioned were given the roles just because they happened to have foreign decent, i think they were given the roles because they were good looking and talented. faten hamama and magda (no foreign decent) were two great acttresses who took leading roles and were not given the maid and bulters jobs you mentioned.in fact faten hamama is called saydet el shasha el 3aribya. what about the great soad hosny? i'm not sure what her background is, i heard her family is orginally from syria. but what i'm trying to say is that she had black hair, brown eyes and olive skin, and she was and will always remain the cinderalla of the egyptian cinema. further, you cannot really say that such and such is the egyptian look. why? because egypt has been occupied from 638 when Amr Ibn El aas came until 1952, and that is a hell of a lot of a long time. and ofcourse there was alot of intermarriage, which resulted in the cultural diversity we have now. so you really cant say so and so doesnt not look egyptian. because really what is the egyptian look? maybe many egyptians have the olive skin black hair look which is very beautiful i think, but that doesnt mean that people who have a different look are not egyptian. as far as i'm concerned rougdy abaza and mervet amen look very egyptian. maybe nadia lotfy and mariam fakher el deen dont, but i dont think its such a big issue. also did you forget that naglaa fathy was mervet amin's fiercest competitor, she was completely egyptian unless you know something i dont!

    Dear Menmen thank you for your comment, although it contains many flaws.
    Merely having black hair or olive skin is not the only factor of race, the facial features are the indicators. I for instance have black hair and olive skin and don't belong to the Egyptian type.
    How can we know how they look like? Well don't all of the Pharaonic statues and mommies and illustrations enough for you?
    The resemblance is striking between their features and a great many of the Egyptians from Fayyoum and mainly the Coptic regions.
    It is not my personal invention, you can read many articles on the matter.
    I have to remention Fardos Abdel Hamid who embodies the features that are typical of the Egyptian face.
    And when I meant "European Descent" I didn't refer to the accent but to the racial type.
    You mentioned Rushdi Abaza, well for your information his mother is italian while his father is from the Abazas, a circassian white race from Russia (The abkhaz for instance) and probably haven't got one single drop of native blood.
    And you spoke for yourself saying that Souad Hosni's family is from Syria, where the Syrians have completely different facial features than the Egyptians.
    These people speak egyptian arabic and hold egyptian passports since decades but still do not represent the egyptian race.

    marclla, again i repeat what is the egyptian race? the phaornic egyptians are not any indicator because these are the "ancient egyptians". there's a big difference between ancient egyptians and modern day egyptians. because as i said we've been invaded by the arabs, as well as others. as for soad hosny, i wasnt talking about her decent, i was pointing that even though she had dark features she was loved and was a star, which counters your point on racism in the egyptian cinema.
    as for the copts i've heard this argument about them being the real decendants of the ancient egyptians but i've also heard many counter arguments. and if you visit egypt you will know what i mean. you will find blond copts, black copts, red headed copts.
    as for fardous abdel hamid, i dont understand what you mean by her emobdizing the egyptian look. can you explain that further, maybe there's something i'm missing . anyway marcella i think you're a polite and well read person, and i repsect your opinion,

    best

    we musnt be dark to be egyptians..we have all colours and all looks I for example and my whole family r blondes and we r orginally from egypt we r not from some where else.
    first to marcelle and menmen
    soad hosni is not from syria she is from a place called shobra here in egypt.
    layla 3elwi is from egypt fully her mum and dad r egyptians.roshdi 2abaza is half egyptian his dad and i am sure abt that cuz his grandson was with me in skool..and if u r talkin that only the not egyptians r the ones who take first roles then that is wrong!
    becuz we have faten hamama.magda.soad hosni.omar 2el sherif.ahmad zaki.adel emam.shadia.ahmad ramzi.and even more they r countless!
    u guys made us bored any successful egyptian has to be originated from another country..what the hell why is that
    omar 2el sherif is fully egyptian and once in miss lebanon a girl was asked a question and she was like becuz he is labenes he is not he is egyptian!!!
    and in the last 2o yrs there wasnt any non-egyptian actin here except for nour and hend sabry and they r not that stars..mona zaki and hanan torek and mena Shaleby all of them r much better than them.
    i think miriam goerge looks egyptian and she represents alot of ppl who look like that she doesnt have to be dark with black hair
    and something else u cant have an egyptian passport just like that it is not allowed here!!
    it is hard to get one!
    and if u think that ppl who lived in egypt hundreds of yrs ago still dont represent the egyptian race then no labenese does!
    most of labenese r orginally frm europe! but they have been livin in lebanon all their lives then they dont represent the lebenese race!!!
    guys get a life and leave egyptians and egypt alone!

    hi, sasso, i'm egyptian and i was defending egypt when i was talking to marcelle. and i agree with you that there is a lot of diversity in egypt as i said to marcelle if you read my comment. and i know that soad hosny is an egyptian from shubra but her family background is syrian and thats a fact i'm sure of. and about the movies i know that egyptians were taking the frist roles, but i was talking about really old movies like in the early 1940's when the actors were foreingers. and if you want to check that out read, "whatever happend to the egyptians," by Dr. Galal Amin, theres a chapter there about the history of egyptian movies
