New Miss Iceland assumes her throne

Unnur Birna Vilhjálmsdóttir was elected Miss Iceland Friday night at a pageant held at Reykjavík nightclub Broadway. Unnur Birna also earned four of six other titles in contest, including “Model of the Year”, “Nina Ricci Girl”, “LCN-Girl” and “Web-Girl FM 95.7”.

Unnur Birna’s mother, Unnur Steinsson, won the Miss Iceland pageant in 1983.

Unnur Birna entered Miss Iceland to honor the memory of her late grandmother who made many of the dresses worn by contestants over the years.
