Mirta Kustan replaced Barbara Lajiljak as Miss Universe Croatia 2015
Miss Universe Croatia organisation came up with an announcement that Mirta Kustan, Second runner-up at Miss Universe Croatia 2015, shall be representing Croatia at Miss Universe 2015. The reason for this last-minute change was that the original winner Barbara Lajiljak broke her arm in an accident a day before. Hence, she will no more be able to compete in Miss Universe 2015 Pageant whose finale will be held in Las Vegas on 20th December 2015. This news was revealed by Ivana, Miss Universe Croatia Organisation, Public Relations.
It came as a very unfortunate news for all of us. We are extremely sad that Barbara Lajiljak had to suffer this pain of letting go of a dram that she must have seen since long, representing Croatia in Miss Universe. However, we are happy that Mirta Kustan accepted this tough challenge to representing her country in Miss Universe at last moment, with almost nil preparations. She was given this chance as the first runner-up Alma Fabulić was unable to compete.
Mirta Kustan is 22-year-old beauty that hails from Krapinske Toplice. She has been a student of Law in Faculty of Law in Zagreb. Mirta looks forward to become a very successful actress or a leader someday in future. Croatia debuted in Miss Universe in 1997 where Kristina Čerina represented the country but went unplaced. Till date, Croatia have had only 2 placement, first by Sarah Cosic in 2009 and second by Elizabeta Burg in 2012. Both of them could not go beyond Top 15/16 in their respective years. Croatia is deprived of a Miss Universe crown. Do you think Mirta Kustan has the potential to win the crown of Miss Universe this year? Or can she get a placement for her country after 3 years? Do let us know what do you think of her.
