WASINGTON, November 20. /TASS/. Marina Alexeychik of Belarus, 31, won the Mrs World 2014 beauty contest in Maryland, the US.
The second place was taken by South Africa’s contender and the third — by Peru’s.

The 2014 world beauty queen title winner is a television host and singer.
Participants in Mrs World beauty contests are married young women who have children and actively participate in political and public life and charity activities in their countries. Thirty five contenders competed for the World 2014 Beauty Queen Title in the pageant in the United States.
