Continuing the lineage of past beauties like Dia Mirza and Zeenat Aman; Srishti Rana has made India proud yet again by getting the much- awaited coveted Miss Asia Pacific World 2013 crown. Rana mesmerised the jury and the audience with her poise, beauty and intelligence and came out as a unanimous winner. Her peacock-inspired gown also won her the Best National costume award, for depicting the national bird of India.
Rana saw off competition from 49 contestants from different countries, which includes first runner up from Egypt- Meriam George and Kazakhstan’s Evgenia Klishina, who was the second runner up. In India, she was trained by the best experts and partners from the fashion and glamour industry. Srishti was trained by the ace choreographer Shiamak Davar for her talent round where she was seen dancing to the tunes of a Bollywood medley. She was also supported by renowned panelists and experts from the industry like Ritu Kumar, Sabira Merchant, Sandesh Mayekar and Dr Jamuna Pai. Srishti Rana has been crowned Miss Asia Pacific World 2013 by last year’s winner Himangini Singh Yadu at a glittering ceremony.
We see a rare combination of beauty and brains in Ms Rana.
