Femina Miss India 2018 officially begun with the press conference of the coveted pageant taking place on 7th February 2018 at Carnival Cinemas, Mumbai.

Reigning Miss World 2017 Manushi Chhillar along with her continental queens namely 1st runner-up Andrea Meza from Mexico, Miss World Kenya 2017 Magline Jeruto, Miss World Korea 2017 Ha-eun Kim, Miss World New Zealand 2017 Annie Evans, Miss World England 2017 Stephanie Hill and Miss World Jamaica 2017 Solange Sinclair all graced the event with their presence.

Along with them was also present Miss World 2016 Stephanie Del Valle. The special guest of honour who made the evening more pleasing was the first Femina Miss India Meher Castelino Mistry, who looked ethereal in her pink and black attire and a heart-warming smile.

The auditions for Femina Miss India are in full swing in various zones. Under the mentorship of personalities like Miss Universe India 2002 and famous Indian actress Neha Dhupia in North, Miss India World 2009 Pooja Chopra in East, second runner-up at Miss Universe India 2010 and Indian actress Pooja Hegde in West and Femina Miss India 2011 contestant Rakul Preet in South, the 30 state finalists are sure to learn a lot and match up the international standards by the end of Femina Miss India 2018.

All the queens lighted up the lamp to officially announce the beginning of the contest. While Manushi outshined in a nude colour Lehnga Choli designed by Shehlaa by Shehla Khan, the audience were pleasantly surprised when the other queens walked the red carpet of the event wearing Indian ethnic outfits. We have to say they were a sight for sore eyes. They looked pretty in Lehngas (crop top and long skirts).

Currently, Manushi is on her first leg of ‘Beauty with a Purpose’ along with her elemental queens and Stephanie Del Valle. They have already paid a visit to various schools and small towns to spread the awareness regarding ‘Female Menstrual Hygiene’.

With Femina Miss India 2018 scheduled to take place in July this year, we can surely expect the Top 30 contestants to learn a trick or two from reigning Miss World from India.
