Miss Russia 2006

All public interest was on the newest Miss Russia 2006 to represent the nation known as having the most beautiful women on earth (now slightly being beaten by Ukraine).

Very surprising to me, there were also beauty contests in the (good) old times. Here are some Miss USSR's (Мисс СССР)...
Yulia Lemigova, Achieving the beauty for the good of socialism in 1991

Ekaterina Palefonoma, The Most Beautiful Soviet Girl in 1990

I know that the conception of beauty changes (or evolves) through decades; but these people are really look like normal russian people you can see on the streets (selling cucumbers or theatre tickets)...

So here is the undeniable proof of this evolution: Tatyana Kotova, Miss Russia 2006...

And here are some details (for who is interested):

Name: Котова Татьяна (Tatyana Kotova)

City: Ростов-на-Дону (Rostov-on-Don...south of Russia)

Age: 21

Height: 175

Объем груди: 93,5

Объем талии: 67

Объем бедер: 93

(I think I don't need to translate the last three...)

Dear Field Commander,

They are all beautiful and the earlier two moreso than 2006. But then that was the USSR and there were many, many more beauties in the competition.

Can you tell me, was there a winner of one of the USSR or post-USSR pageants named Irina? If so, do you have a picture?
