    those cut out sleeves are similar to one that was worn by another miss universe/world so i guess they tried it again.

      Yup.. its a replica of the one worn by Simran in Miss Universe 2008.. which was a replica of the lehenga worn by Lara in Miss Univer 2000!

      Sarcasm apart, hope we win the crown this time.. its sure been a long time since 2000!

    I absolutely love the lehenga!! the colour-combo is awesome.. love the style of choli also..

    Def agree with you guys. Btw, isn’t tht top very similar to what Simran Kaur Mundi wore last year for the Miss World comp?
    I would think that it would be better for the Miss Indias to move on from the lengha and wear something else during the National costume round, after all India has so many different types of traditional wear

    why would Ritu Kumar repeat the same style again and again .. no doubt the lehenga is stunning however the choli doesnt do justice …
    Agree with Nitu .. so many more costumes than just the same old beaten to death versions of lehenga and sari’s … may be they can try regional costumes from a particular state .. ( where the contestant hails from )

    Cut out sleeves look hideous!
    But I do love the black lengha. Very rarely do you designers use black with these traditional outfits.

    By the way.. how is this girl ready to compete in the Miss Universe pageant with her tummy hanging out like that (first pic)! She’ll fail miserably in the swimsuit round!

    the skirt makes up for the awkward sleeves. Ravishing!

    agreed ^ They can do better – something new that makes them stand out more but in a good way.

    She is just getting lost in that color riot.. Looking pale and not as vibrant as the lehenga.

    TOTALLY agree, that lehenga is GOREOUS! and so unsual
    but I dislike the black band on top

    It would have looked so much better if it was just the halter neck or it had complete sleeves .. That cut-out just looks like an after-thought!!
    The dupatta and lehenga are awesome though!!

    Wow, Ritu Kumar has been rehashing that design for years now. I think I first remember seeing it on Lara Dutta in black, also on Priyanka Chopra and, it seems, on every contestant after that. It’s weird coz I don’t think it’s that good a design!!!

    Ufff….wat a neat lehenga!the color the work….its all so beautiful!

    Why would they wear the same design year after year after year!!!! YAwn! No wonder people have stopped winning.

    And seriously what’s going on with her hair…it’s so out of place and looks really shabby!

    why would they wear the same design choli!!!!

    lengha skirt too was prettier last year i think. this year is quite pretty as well. only if the choli style wasn’t repeated.

    oh a simple sleeveless blouse or one with sleeves would have looked so much better, and i am sorry to say this, but she looks somewhat odd, the hair hanging on the side, half of the head covered, somehow the whole thing makes her look like a man dressed as a woman.

    What a gorgeous lahenga, a simple makeup, hair and drape and ofcourse a better blouse would have done it for her.

      ditto@man dressed as a woman. i was about to comment on that last night(particularly the second picture) wasn’t sure if it would be approved. :D

    Normally I love Ritu Kumar’s designs but I’m not big on this one.

    The lehanga is truly gorgeous!
    Too bad the same can’t be said about the rest.
    Hair– shabby
    Necklace- ugly
    And was it necessary to drape the dupatta over her head? It surely doesnt reflect women’s empowerment or freedom or any of those other ideals that the paegent claims to promote.

    The blouse is tacky and ruins this othewise lovely ensemble

    The dress is beautiful but is not flattering to her body/abdomen….
