According to Adjie S Soeratmadjie of the RCTI (Rajawali Citra Televisi Indonesia), official broadcaster and organiser of Miss World 2013 in Indonesia, the contestants will now be required to wear long Bali sarongs instead of bikinis, reported Ace Showbiz.
"There will no bikini in this year's Miss World pageant to respect our traditional customs and values. This is a sensitive issue in Indonesia. We have discussed it since last year and they have agreed," Soeratmadjie said.
Last year, pop sensation Lady Gaga was forced to cancel its sold-out concert in Jakarta because of huge protest from hardliners for her provocative outfits.
Even Beyonce Knowles and The Pussycat Dolls also toned down their sexy clothing when they performed in the most populous Muslim country.
