Our very own Unnur Birna Vilhjálmsdóttir has just been crowned Miss World!

That makes her the third Icelandic Miss World in 20 years. Not bad for a population of 290,000, is it? [bragbrag]

And yes, ordinarily I don’t condone beauty contests. [They really are unbelievably cheesy, no?] But I’m still glad she won.

[No prizes for guessing what will be the main topic of conversation in the hot pots over the next week…]
