By: Sandra Ortiz

Alejandra Marisa Rodriguez, a lawyer and journalist by profession, has defied beauty standards by being crowned “Miss Universe Buenos Aires” at the age of 60. Her courage and determination set an important precedent for inclusion in beauty pageants.

Alejandra Marisa Rodriguez, a 60-year-old lawyer, has just been crowned Miss Universe Buenos Aires 2024, and now she is preparing for the national contest that will take place on May 25th in the Argentine capital.

This unprecedented event has occurred thanks to a change in the Miss Universe regulations, which came into effect this year and allows women of 18 years and older to qualify for the contest. Another important change, announced in 2022, is that now the participation of married women and mothers is also allowed, thus promoting a much more inclusive environment in one of the most-watched beauty pageants in the world.

“I am very happy to be representing this new paradigm in beauty pageants because we are inaugurating a new stage in which women are not only physical beauty but also another set of values. I am the first in this generation to start with this,” she declared on the Arriba Argentinos television program.

Her motivations for participating in the contest were diverse: the change in the contest’s rules that now allow women of all ages to compete, the encouragement of a friend who also participated, and the perception of the contest as a personal challenge and a unique opportunity to bet on something different in her life.
