Pictured is Lejla Sehović, the original Miss Croatia 1998 winner.
Results of that year´s pageant were annuled and the contest was held again after it was discovered that Lejla was half-muslim. Ivana Petković was chosen as the new queen and later became a semifinalist at Miss World 1999 held in London. Lejla´s story, however, caught the attention of the MWO and so she was allowed to compete for the famous blue crown in 1998.
