Rabat – Morocco has its new beauty queen. Rania Aaït has been crowned Miss Morocco 2018, in a ceremony at Palais Namaskar in Marrakech. She succeeds Sara Belkziz, who won the title in 2016.
Rania Aaït, 23, is a young fashion designer who is studying French law at the Faculty of Legal, Economic and Social Sciences (FSJES).
The contest was not the young lady’s first. In 2016, Aait was elected Miss Marrakech, and in 2017, she was named a first runner-up for Miss Cherry, an annual beauty contest in Sefrou.
The beauty queen is also very active on social media. She has 11.7 thousand followers on Instagram, on which she shared several pictures of her election.
The ceremony boasted the participation of several celebrities, such as Moroccan singer Dounia Batma and Algerian raï artist Faudel, among other names.
The competition’s rules were very strict as the organizers were selecting only unmarried contestants without tattoos, piercings, and especially without any plastic surgery. The day before, the contestants were even subjected to an exam by a surgeon.
