Welcome back to my blog. Here’s a an exclusive coverage (through my eyes), of the most Glamourous event of the year “fbb Colors Femina Miss India 2017”!!!
Well the journey began with fbb flying us to Mumbai on 24th of June,2017, for the event which held on 25th of June. We were put up in VITS hotel, closeby the airport.
And look what I received! A stunning Namrata Joshipura outfit which I won as part of an activity was beautifully packed and handed over to me. Special thanks to Gargy for the lovely packaging (I opened the package very carefully while taking care not to damage it. Gargy, the packaging is still intact 😀 )
A closer look at the invitation card of the most awaited event of the year!!
As we all were in the party mood already, we couldn’t wait for 25th June and we had a little pre-event celebration on 24th June (Saturday Night!):
And Finally the day arrived!! We were lazing around during the first half of Sunday and then we started getting dressed up for the event! For some reason I felt like picking an ethnic wear and so I went for this gorgeous floor length Anarkali by Neerus Emporio:
I don’t know what pushed me to go for an ethnic wear this day- Probably some intuition ! Yes.. guess what, for the first time in history, Femina Miss India crowning was done in Indian Ethnic wear!! Yooohoooo !! I was more than delighted to hear Karan Johar announce this ! I so much felt like a part of the event when this got into my ears 😀
Before we move further, lemme give you a closer look at my makeup and the OOTN:
The event was held at Yash Raj studios, Mumbai and all the celebrities walked the red carpet and made their way into the studio. The show was hosted by my all time favorite hosts Karan Johar and Ritesh Deshmukh!! Their sense of humor is unbeatable!!
This year, there was a different format (click here to know more). The event started with introduction of these extremely talented mentors from the 4 zones: Dipannita Sharma (East Zone), Waluscha D’Souza (West Zone) , Neha Dhupia (North Zone) and Parvathy Omanakuttan(South Zone).
The stage was set and the gorgeous ladies stepped in gorgeous Amit Agarwal gowns:
These Gorgeous ethnic gowns by Manish Malhotra were displayed by the 30 contestants from 30 states of India, in which the final crowning was done too 🙂 I must say each outfit was better than the other!!
After Round 1, only half of them, top 15 contestants made it to the next round.
The panel of judges consisting of Director Abhishek Kapoor, actress Ileana D’Cruz, dashing Arjun Rampal, Stunning Miss world Stephanie Del Valle , glamorous Bipasha Basu, Vidyut Jamwal and the ace designer Manish Malhotra (from left to right in the picture above) chose the top 6 finalists – Anukriti Gusain, Manushi Chhillar, Sana Dua, Sephali Sood, Aishwarya Devan & Priyanka Kumari !
Bollywood Actor, Sushant Singh, Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor had set the stage on fire with their extraordinary performances… Here’s a glimpse:
Based on the outcome of the final questionnaire round where the finalists were asked a common deciding question: “You’ve spent 30 days with 30 contestants here, what are the learning/experiences that you would take away from here?“ , the final winners were announced by the members of the Jury: Bipasha Pasu and Ileana! And the 3 winners: fbb Colors Femina Miss India, Manushi Chhillar from Haryana, 1st Runner Up, Sana Dua from Jammu and Kashmir and 2nd Runner Up Priyanka Kumari from Bihar, gracefully walked the ramp wearing the their prestigious crowns and sashes!
