Thailand’s beautiful new Miss Thailand World is a walking advertisement against the need for whitening creams. According to the Bangkok Coconuts, unlike the scandalous Weluree Ditsayabut, Miss Universe Thailand, whose winner stepped down under hateful comments, Maeya Nonthawan THONGLENG seems (at the beginning) to have won Thailand’s heart with a clean profile.
One of the most-discussed qualities of Maeya is her gorgeous tan skin, which some netizens hope marks a change in Thailand’s pageant culture, where fair skin and a Eurasian heritage have often proved an advantage. Nearly all the presenters are light skinned and all the celebrities. In Thailand the white skin standard has been set by all cosmetic brands through all media and for them ‘white skin is more attractive.’
There were suggestions as well that her victory would slow the market in skin-whitening products but Maeya Nonthawan THONGLENG refused. Read Maya’s Reaction Here.
