New Miss Universe Malaysia launched, first Miss Universe private jet revealed

Newly formed Miss Universe Malaysia was launched in a press conference held on Friday, February 17 at the Astor Ballroom of the St. Regis Hotel in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

The event officially introduced Indonesian singer Poppy Capella of Just Capella as the new license holder. She is also the owner of Jakarta-based PT Capella Swastika Karya which recently acquired Miss Universe Indonesia.

Also announced joining her team is appointed CEO Dato' Westin Chew, a Malaysian businessman and hands-on chief executive officer who has over a decade of experience in various fields.

Miss Universe 2022 R'Bonney Gabriel and her court, Dominican Republic's Andreína Martínez Founier, and Curacao's Gabriëla Dos Santos were invited to attend as special guests. This is the second part of their official Asian tour that kicked off in Bangkok, Thailand a week ago.

Miss Universe Organization owner and JKN Global Group's Anne Jakratutatip, who just celebrated her 44th birthday, was also present and revealed the first-ever Miss Universe private jet to be used for the reigning queen's official trips around the world.

With the new partnership, Miss Universe Malaysia is expected to not only elevate Malaysian pageantry to a whole new level but create a platform that brings change to the world and attention to important social issues.

Malaysia currently holds the longest streak of non-placement at Miss Universe. Since its debut in 1962, the country only placed once with Josephine Lena Wong in 1970.

The national franchise for Miss Universe Malaysia was previously held by former titleholder Elaine Daly.
