ZAGREB, 6 May 2021 – Miss Croatia, 23-year-old Mirna Naiia Marić, has departed today for the United States ahead of next week’s Miss Universe pageant.  

The 177 cm-tall, Zadar-born former model will be representing Croatia at the Miss Universe pageant 2020 which was postponed last year. 

Miss Universe 2020 is the 69th edition of the Miss Universe competition and takes place on May 16, 2021 at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida. 

Mirna, who speaks fluent English and Italian and graduated from the School of Applied Arts and Design in Zadar, says her smile and charisma are her strongest assets. 

Mirna will wear a national dress designed by well known Croatian designer Matija Vuica. The national dress is inspired by the beauties of Croatia.
