Celebrity model Cindy Carino was an unfortunate no show at this year’s Miss Humanity Australia National Finals.

The pageant was hosted by the very talented Tottie Goldsmith, and saw an array of celebrity judges including Moria Kelly AO, Kelly Cartwright OAM, Craig Braybrook and KEAT Modelling Agency.

Directed by Lori-Rose McGinty, the event aims to advocate humanitarian causes by raising awareness and funds and inspires young women to be role models through the participation in charitable initiatives.

Unlike other pageants, Miss Humanity Australia supports the entrant’s individual causes, rather than affiliating with a single charity. This makes for a very holistic pageant, providing entrants with a voice and changes the perception of beauty within the community.


A big congratulations to the following girls for their outstanding achievements:

Miss Humanity Australia 2014, Bonnie Stewart (SA) – advocating for the prevention of domestic violence via her own charity; With Love & Lipstick

Miss Humanity Australia 2014 1st Runner Up, Zoe Condliffe (VIC) – advocating for Mayibuye Cambodia

Miss Humanity Austalia 2014 2nd Runner Up, Krista McMeeken (WA) – advocating for Legacy and indigenous rights

Most Outstanding Humanitarian – Jane Lillingstone (QLD)

Most Photogenic – Brittany Bloomer (NSW)

People’s Choice – Kate Martin (VIC)

Miss Fundraiser (Tie) – Danielle Carter and Lisa Wyse (WA)


All of the national finalists, and Tottie Goldsmith, were dressed by Zsaneta Couture and Activewear was by Sportsgirl. Hair and Makeup were done by Youshiki Scissors & Hair and ARTistHD Professional.

Miss Humanity Australia has also supported events such as Fashion for the Unleashed in St Kilda. The charity event aimed to raise funds for animal shelters, Second Chance Animal Rescue, Melbourne Animal Rescue and Puppy Tales, ultimately raising awareness about homeless animals and encouraging adoption.

Carino, a passionate charity advocate, was crowned the very first Miss Australia and Miss Charity 2014 for the ‘Face of the Globe’ World finals in Paris last year.

Due to Carino’s inspiring work, the contestants were looking forward to meeting the celebrity guest.

Despite not being able to attend, Carino is very proud of all the contestants and congratulated this year’s winner.

“Our new Miss Humanity Australia 2014, Bonnie Stewart, must be so proud right now and I congratulate all the girls as they are all winners in my eyes”

“Every one of them have made a difference, it’s all about the passion and participation towards awareness that really counts,” she said.

“I hope all the contestants continue with their chosen charities because we need more youth learning about what is happening today around the world.”
