“Age is just a number” – Reactions as 60-year-old wins Miss Universe Buenos Aires beauty pageant

A 60-year-old Argentine woman has shocked people by winning the coveted Miss Universe for the province of Buenos Aires.

Alejandra Marisa Rodriguez emerged winner of the Miss Universe Buenos Aires beauty pageant after the age restriction was removed for the first time and contestants of all ages above 18 were accepted.

She’s from La Plata, the capital city of Argentina’s Buenos Aires Province. Rodriguez is not just a beauty queen; she’s a seasoned lawyer and a journalist.

She becomes the first woman of her age cohort to clinch such a prestigious title.

Her elegance, grace, and infectious smile captivated both judges and audiences alike. 

Videos shared on social media reveal her determination as she prepares to represent Buenos Aires in the upcoming national selection for Miss Universe Argentina, slated for May 2024.

Should she emerge victorious, Rodriguez will represent Argentina on the global stage at the Miss Universe World contest, scheduled for September 28, 2024, in Mexico. 

“I am thrilled to be representing this new paradigm in beauty pageants because we are inaugurating a new stage in which women are not only physical beauty but another set of values,” she told the media after her win.

The Miss Universe organization last year announced that it would no longer have age limits for pageant contestants. Beginning this year, any woman over the age of 18 is eligible to compete.

Previously, only women ages 18–28 could enter the pageant. 

Another beauty pageant contestant who is making waves is 47-year-old Haidy Cruz, who will represent Dominican Republic in Miss Universe 2024.
