On July 19, 2006, Nadine was reported to the police by the Islamic Front Defenders (Front Pembela Islam) for her involvement in the 2006 Miss Universe Pageant.[3] She was accused of breaking the Code of Law 281, edict number 02/U/1984, regarding Cultural and Educational conduct. Indonesian law forbids any kind of involvement in beauty pageants and considers such to be indecency. Nadine was one of several people who were reported for this misdemeanor, and others included Miss Indonesia 2004 Artika Sari Devi and the Miss Indonesia Foundation.[4] The issue, however, seemed to have fizzled out over time and nothing ever came of it. According to a Miss Universe 2006 interview, she considers Mother Teresa her idol and wants to work for UNICEF in the future.[citation needed] Despite all the controversy, she attained runner-up position for National Costume thanks to Anne Avantie, who designed kebaya Kencono Wungu. And because of her warm personality, she also reached runner-up for Miss Congeniality.
