Miss Universe Croatia 2015, the 19th Miss Universe Croatia pageant, was held on June 7, 2015 in the Crystal Ballroom at Hotel Westin in Zagreb, Croatia. Ivana Mišura, Miss Universe Croatia 2014 of Zagreb crowned Barbara Ljiljak as her successor at the end of the event.
Last year, Miss Universe Croatia, Barbara Ljiljak was not able to participate in Miss Universe due to an arm injury and hence her second runner up, Mirta Laura Kustan of Krapinske Toplice was assigned as Croatia’s representative to Miss Universe 2015, which was held in Las Vegas, Nevada USA on 20th December 2015.
Since, Mirta Kustan was assigned by the Miss Universe Hrvatske organization at quite late period, hence she could not make the cut to the semi-finals of Miss Universe 2015 grand finaleSince, Barbara Ljiljak was never stripped of her title, and her accident only gave the right of representation to Mirta Kustan, hence Barbara would be crowning her successor at the conclusion of the Miss Universe Croatia 2016 pageant.
Since its participation, Croatia has placed at Miss Universe pageant only twice. After seeing the contestants, do you think it’s high time for Croatia to get its third placement at Miss Universe pageant, which is now under the ownership of WME and IMG Talent/Modeling Agency?
