24 Nov 2017 | Aakanksha Chugh

Asian beauties have taken over the international beauty pageants, particularly the Big 4 pageants, by storm this year with the crowning of Karen Ibasco of Philippines as Miss Earth 2017 on 4th November followed by the crowning of Kevin Lilliana of Indonesia as Miss International 2017 on 14th November and then the victory of Manushi Chhillar of India in Miss World 2017 on 18th November 2017.

In the history of the international beauty pageants, it has never occurred when the Asian beauties record a complete win in all the Big 4 pageants in the same year. We are not talking about just some pageant, but the renowned pageants that have been here for more than a decade where the girls from all around the world come to participate. And this year, beauties from Asia have won so far three of the Big 4 pageants (which is already a record) and if another beauty from the continent manages to win the Miss Universe 2017 pageant which is just a few days away, it will be the first time in the history of Big 4 pageants, that all the winners come from the same continent and will be a clean sweep for Asia!

This trail of wins started early in November when the lovely 26-year-old Karen Ibasco of Philippines was crowned Miss Earth 2017 where she stunned everyone with her beauty and intelligence. This was followed by Indonesia’s Kevin Lilliana, who won the coveted title of Miss International 2017 on 14th November 2017. Kevin was just flawless in all the rounds of the competition and came across as a breath of fresh air with her poise and loveliness. Then came the day for Miss World 2017 on 18th November, and India's Manushi Chhillar took the Miss World stage by blizzard with her thunderous performance and gloried in her triumph. She became a star overnight with her fan following increasing many folds already.

Their wins have come as a happy surprise for all the Asian pageant lovers who have supported them all through their journey. And now that there is so little time left for the much-awaited coronation night of Miss Universe 2017, the Asian beauties are once again ready to show their wit and charm on stage.

Performing exceptionally great till now, the Asian beauties competing in Miss Universe 2017 have not left a single stone unturned in their preparations. We have our favourite Asian beauties for Miss Universe 2017, and anyone of them winning the title on 26th November will join this elite club of 2017 Asian beauties with Big 4 international titles.

If the Asian girls bag victory in all the Big 4 international pageants this year, they will not only win the hearts of many but also make their continent and respective countries proud.

There is no denying the fact that the girls from this continent have always been very graceful and talented whether we talk about Lebanon’s Christina Sawaya, Japan’s Riyo Mori, India’s Aishwarya Rai, Priyanka Chopra or Philippines’ Megan Young, Kylie Verzosa and Pia Wurtzbach among many others. They inspired the lives of many and also encouraged the world to be beautiful both in and out, just like they are.
