All rights reserved. Magnolia Maymuru will make history when she becomes the first Indigenous woman to represent the Northern Territory at the Miss World Australia National Titles this July -- just don't expect her to be wearing a bikini, or clutching at any crown. The year-old from Yirrkala -- a coastal Arnhem Land community kilometres east of Darwin -- works as a sport and recreation officer and hopes her participation in the pageant will show Australia a different side to young Indigenous women. For Maymuru, who does not agree to book photoshoots that show her legs, her involvement goes much deeper than a pageant sash and runway career and comes at a time the global competition has chosen to ditch its swimsuit round, opting to focus more on charity alignment. It doesn't do anything for the woman. And it doesn't do anything for any of us. First discovered back in by NT Fashion Week director, Mehali Tsangaris, it would be another 12 months before the Mangalili tribe woman agreed to dip her toes into the fashion industry, having knocked back Tsangaris's on-the-spot offer to work with him.

It's hard to believe Miss World still exists in , what with the sparkling tiaras, pinned sashes, male judges, and points cards, not to mention the bikini round. It's disturbing to accept that young girls still look to archaic debutante shows such as Miss World and measure themselves against the models of femininity they put forward. But it's important to acknowledge. According to The Telegraph , Maymuru hails from a remote outback town called Yirrkala in the north of Australia. Much like Naomi Campbell and Jourdan Dunn, Maymuru was scouted in pretty ordinary circumstances at a cash point by model agent Mehali Tsangaris.
