Fans also got a peek at Arnold’s arrival, through her Instagram Stories yesterday. She was welcomed to Japan by her roommate, Miss Spain Julianna Ro. She also showed her sash for the global pageant.
The 60th Miss International competition marks its first pageant in two years, following years of postponement due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
