We normally don’t follow the Miss Universe pageant but this year, there has been some major buzz over the National Costumes and in contention in the final five is our very own Miss India Noyonita Lodh.

After years of representing the national costume in lehengas, the Miss India team this year seems to have decided to go all out. Like way out. Question is, are you liking this risk they’ve taken?

P.S. The pageant takes place on Jan 25th which is when we’ll find out who won.

    • Yes! You’re right! It looks more Thai/Indonesian than Indian. But I do like it better than the lenghas that these Miss India contestants always wear.

  1. How is this Indian national dress? Carnival costume more like.

    In fairness, it is not uncommon for some of these ‘national dresses’ to have such bizarre extra bits, and often I have seen contestants open them up like a peacock opening up its plumes. India’s understated, dignified looks (mostly Ritu Kumar creations) have been a welcome change … until now!

    Did you know Juhi Chawla won the national costume round when she was a MIss Universe contestant?

  2. first i thought it was manish arora coz we see all this OTT stuff in his shows but i believe this is done by Neeta lulla. this isnt her style at all. but nevertheless its effective and apt for the platform.

  3. What is this? B Grade Bollywood movie dance costume meets Siam Niramit dancers meet Nataraja statue???Ok u can fool the judges but can u fool the entire population of India???
    What is this and since when did this become our national costume?? I didnt like it. Wht is the horizontal support rod doing there…it looks like a last minute addition – a vertical one would have helped better as it will remain hidden. Neeta Lulla sometimes does make u cringe. Cannes you forget Ash?

  4. Thai seriously have you looked around to eastern India btw which is also a part of our culture and country. I lived there and that is the vibe i am getting.

  5. Isn’t that a Hindu Goddess? Sorry, not up to date on Hindu gods. I wish I could paste a link. But the pic I’m looking at has 4 hands and the halo thing is almost identical. Also a lot of Shiva lingams around it.

  6. This is exactly the kind of thing you would see in a film by an Indian-born foreign director to “depict” India. They might as well have added a tiger there and given her a mace and a sword to hold in her hands. Absurd!

  7. Folks, look at canada before commenting.

    Anyway, I was tired of ye old random ghagra choli which might look exotic to everyone else but was quite boring. I do think if this were more inspired by mahabharat type mukuts it would be more recognizable.

  8. Why is Sushmita Sen and the I am She team being complimented Noyonita Lodh was selected by Times of India for this contest. Sushmita Sen has nothing to do with the selection of Miss India for Miss Universe contest anymore.
