The Maonan ethnic costume fashion show was the biggest hit in the competition. A debut of Maonan traditional clothes, it was divided into the five sections of Chinese formal dresses, swimsuits, ethnic costumes, evening dresses and contestants' talents.

Apart from the colorful activities on the stage, the competition also enabled models to promote scenic spots and distinctive agricultural products of Huanjiang through live-streaming, which offered netizens a chance to appreciate both the beauty pageant and the county's stunning landscapes.
