Over the years, Miss Russian LA and Miss Russian United States brought out many of Hollywoods elite including Mickey Rourke (Emmy Award-winning and Oscar-nominated actor); Nick Light (VP of Sony Pictures); Kathy Nelson (music producer and actor known for work in Unbreakable, Repo Men and The Bourne Identity); Larry Namer (co-founder of E! Entertainment Television, Movies USA Magazine, and current head of Metan Global Entertainment Group); Rich Thurber (TV producer and road manager/producer for Howie Mandel, Janet Jackson, and Michael Jackson, currently working on NBCs Americas Got Talent).
The pageant is open to any qualified female at least 18 years old who is a United States resident with the ability to speak Russian. The final 14 contestants were selected from over 50 applicants who have been in rehearsals for a month. The finalists will be judged in five separate categories: talent, bikini, evening gown, presentation, and interview. The evening gown portion will be overseen by Russias fashion icon, Bad Apple Couture. Both English and Russian will be spoken throughout the pageant.
This year, the pageant winner will receive the title of Miss Russian United States 2021 and an award package including a bejeweled crown, a Swiss watch valued at $5,000, front cover of the magazine , a couture evening gown, a beautiful set of jewelry, and a four-day trip for two to Hawaii.
