Yulia Alipova, the winner of the Miss Russia 2014 contest, will no longer be competing at Miss World 2014 contest. The official Miss World website has already removed her profile in their official website. Traditionally, although not all of the time, the Miss Russia winner would compete at both Miss Universe and Miss World contest.
This comes as the Miss Universe 2014 schedule which is on January 2015 is a little closer to the Miss World schedule which is on December 2014.
The Miss Russia Organization is pleased to announce that this year Anastasia Kostenko, 2nd runner-up to Miss Russia 2014 will represent Russia at Miss World 2014 on December 14, 2014 at ExCeL London in London, England.
