Miss Universe 2021, Harnaaz Sandhu picked a pink gold embellished lehenga for the national costume segment of the Miss Universe contest. She carried a traditional wedding parasol and paid tribute to her mother land. She walked with much grace. She added statement danglers, bangles, ring, a choker neck piece and multi-stranded matha patti to her look.
Speaking about her costume, she said, “It is a royal visual representation of a woman that showcases the Indian queen, strong yet delicate. Its elements are symbolic towards the protection instinct of a woman.”
The outfit was designed by Abhinav Mishra. She thanked the designer and shared the picture on her Instagram with caption, “Thank you @abhinavmishra_ for such an intricate piece of art that is my national costume and today as I walked on that stage, I felt a sense of empowerment. I dedicate my performance to all those strong women out there who face battles every day with a smile. You’re a warrior and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.”
After winning the title, Harnaaz Sandhu screamed “Chak de fatte India”. Now as Miss Universe, the Chandigarh-born is going to reside in New York and participate in events globally.
After 21 years, India’s Harnaaz Sandhu won the prestigious Miss Universe title. She represented India at the 70th Miss Universe 2021, held in Eilat, Israel.
