Twenty-six finalists were shortlisted for the grand finale from the auditions held in Gangtok and Namchi last year. The finalists underwent a week-long grooming session held at Mount Zion School, Namchi, where the girls were groomed by celebrity fashion stylist and make-up artist Johnny D’Ascoli.  

Wrapping up things

Beauty pageants can provide valuable lessons and boost self-confidence, but they can also lead to depression and low self-esteem. Furthermore, young girls who participate in pageants learn that beauty equals success. We hope that more beauty pageants start making all body types acceptable, and also all races. The focus on women empowerment is also something we could focus more than just the physical beauty of the women who compete. Tell us your thoughts on importance of beauty pageants.
