I knew Nikita has something that makes her a winner. Now, Miss Nepal has been one of the Top 40 in Miss World 2017 beauty pageant after winning the Head to Head Challenge round of Group 3. The 20-years-old Miss Nepal was also selected in the Top 30 of the Top Model Fasttrack event. She however couldn’t make it to Top Model final of that event.
After winning Miss Nepal 2017 title, Nikita is representing Nepal in the 67th edition of Miss World, being held at Sanya, China. The finale of the contest is scheduled to be held on November 18, 2017. A total of 118 participants are competing for the crown this year and being top 40 means a lot for the Miss Nepal. The current Miss World, Miss World 2016, Stephanie Del Valle of Puerto Rico will hand over the crown to the winner of the contest on next Saturday.
Nikita’s Gown at Miss World
Although Nikita wasn’t successful in winning title, she was selected in Top 30 thanks to an attractive gown she wore at the contest. She was wearing a gown designed by Manis Rai. Nikita has shared Rai’s statement about the gown, “The design has been inspired from the rich heritage of Nepal. It has intricate details inspired from the Mithila art.” Mithila art had evolved in Janakpur of East Nepal.
He says, “Mithila art was first painted during the marriage of lord Ram with Sita.” The sleeveless gown has sweetheart neckline and has fitted silhouette till the knee and full flared skirt below knee. The details of the gown is handcrafted goldwork embroidery. Nikita says, “The ladies here were awed by your design and they could just see the amount of time and effort the designer and his team had put on to make it.
Nikita is going on strong and there are hopes from the Nepali beauty. Let’s wish Nikita Chandak all the best in Miss World 2017.
I had predicted Nikita to win the contest during the Miss Nepal contest (here is a video I made at that time:)
