Sushmita Sen’s national beauty pageant I Am She which will send its winner to the Miss Universe contest had its Fashion round at Trident, Mumbai on Sunday in collaboration with Wadhawan Lifestyle. I Am She was started last year by Tantra Entertainment Private Ltd and former Miss Universe Sushmita after Femina Miss India gave up its patent to send the representative to the Miss Universe pageant. The I Am Fashion sub contest was judged by fashion designer Manish Malhotra, model Netra Raghunathan and photographer Daboo Malik. Last year’s I Am Voice winner Sheena Chouhan hosted the event. Sushmita, who looked sexy in a black ensemble, thanked the judges and the media for the support towards the event. The event required the 20 contestants to walk down the ramp with their best attitude possible. When the judges expressed their desire to pose questions to some of the contestants, the girls sashayed down the ramp once more and answered the volley of questions thrown at them with ease. Certainly Miss Sen’s grooming tips seemed to have been put to full use. The Miss Universe entrant will be selected from these twenty after a round of swimsuits, evening gowns and personal interviews.
The twenty contestants are Ana Chawdhry, Anvita Sudarshan, Bobby Layal, Divya Chowksey, Khushboo Mendonca, Kiran Thapar, Madhavi Mahajan, Mala Salariya, Niharica Raizada, Parul Duggal, Priyanka Chopra, Ranju Singh, Sabiha Attarwala, Sakshi Bindra, Seep Taneja, Tanvi Singla, Vasuki Sunkavalli, Vijaya Dey, Zoya Patel and Trishla Chandola.
