Avigail Alfatov was crowned Miss Israel Universe 2015 at the end of the pageant on June 2, 2015. She is Miss Israel 2015 1st runner-up, the winner Maayan Keren will go to Miss World 2015 while Avigail will go to Miss Universe 2015.
On Sunday, Jan. 25, 2015, Doron Matalon represented Israel at Miss Universe 2014 but failed to place. By the way Doron has left her mark on people’s minds with the story of selfie with Miss Lebanon Saly Greige.
Sadly, politics can’t be left behind at the Miss Universe pageant. After Doron posted the pic of the smiling girls on her Instagram, which frankly is so adorable, Saly posted the exact same photo on her Instagram — but with Doron cropped out.
