Miss World 2013 Contestant Dominica’s Leslassa Amour-Shillingford
As this is published 19 year old Leslassa is competing for the Miss World title in Indonesia. She is the first Dominican contestant in 35 years.
What is so amazing about Miss Dominica not the Republic of Dominica by the way, but the Commonwealth of Dominica, coined the Nature Isle of the Caribbean, is that she is not wearing a wig, a weave, or relaxed hair, but she is representing her Island to the world wearing her own natural hair!
“I love my frizzy hair…. I’m 100% about that frizzy life”, Leslassa Amour-Shillingford, Miss World – Dominica 2013
I counted 28 other contestants that look to be of African heritage and Leslassa was the only one wearing her hair natural!
The truth is not only is she representing her Island, but she is also representing NATURAL HAIR, the world over!
I caught up with Leslassa when she stopped off at the Dominican Embassy in London, on route to the contest.
Sadly it’s so rare to see a beauty queen wearing natural hair, that I couldn’t help but ask her about her choice of hair texture:
