Katerina Georgiadou (Greek: Κατερίνα Γεωργιάδου) (born 1982 in Thessaloniki, Greece) is a former Miss Greece and fashion model who has appeared in numerous fashion magazines and international events.

Background[edit]

Georgiadou currently lives in Argyroupoli (Greek:Αργυρούπολη). She studied classical ballet and gymnastics for 8 years at the University of Gymnastics in Athens. Upon becoming engaged to Stathis Tavlaridis in 2007, it was announced that she was to give up modeling,[1] and in 2009 the couple was married. They have a daughter named Anastasia.[2]

Career[edit]

Georgiadou won the 2002 title of Miss Hellas (Greek: Miss Ελλάς) at the Miss Star Hellas pageant and went on to represent her country as Miss Greece in the Miss World pageant held in London.[3] The pageant originally was going to be held in Abuja, Nigeria but was moved to London when violence broke out and more than 100 people died in riots provoked by the contest when existing religious tensions between Christians and Muslims erupted.[4]

She was also a volunteer at the 2004 Summer Olympics.
