In the world of beauty pageants, Olesya Leuenberger is a true standout. Recently given the opportunity to represent Switzerland at the prestigious Mrs. World 2022 pageant in Las Vegas, Olesya reflects on the experience as a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. “I felt honored to represent my country and be part of such a diverse and welcoming family of 57 delegates. We all had a sense of sisterhood and it was truly a special experience.” In addition to her successes at the Ms. Europe Continental Switzerland 2022 and Mrs. Switzerland 2022 pageants, Olesya was thrilled to participate in the Mrs. World 2022 pageant, which celebrates womanhood and provides a platform for married women to showcase their love of fashion and modeling.
But it wasn’t just the competition that made the experience so memorable for Olesya. She recalls one of the most breathtaking moments of the week as a dinner held at the Elvis Presley suite at the Westgate hotel. “The suite still holds the mesmerizing energy of Presley’s talent and I could hardly believe I spent hours on the same stage where he used to perform. It was a truly once-in-a-lifetime experience for me.”
Olesya’s journey in the fashion industry began at the young age of 15, when she quickly gained local fame as a model. Now, as a successful businesswoman and homemaker, she continues to follow her passion for fashion by promoting sustainable and women-led fashion labels. “I feel it is my duty to use my influence for good and support important causes,” Olesya says.
But it was her experience at Mrs. World 2022 that truly opened Olesya’s eyes to the world of beauty pageantry. “The pageant week at Mrs. World gave me a completely new perspective on beauty pageantry. It was my first experience on such a global scale and I learned so much from it,” Olesya shares. “I learned that to show up and enjoy is so much more important than winning a competition and this feeling was shared by every participant, they did not have a competitive spirit but rather, a collaborative attitude.” Olesya hopes to serve as an inspiration to other women and apply the valuable insights she gained through her experiences as she moves forward. she is grateful to everyone who has supported on this journey. “I would like to thank my supporting Valmont Cosmetics (https://www.lamaisonvalmont.com/ch/en/) for helping me with the Mrs World journey commitments.” Said Olesya Leuenberger.
