21 -year old Srishti Rana is the 2013 Miss Asia Pacific winner after she out competed 49 other contestants in Korea on Oct 30.
Srishti looked gorgeous in a Falguni & Shane gown as she was being crowned by the reigning Miss Asia Pacific World 2012 Himangini Singh Yadu from India.
Srishti Rana mesmerized the jury and the audience with her poise, beauty and intelligence and came out as a unanimous winner in the 50th year of Miss India.
She also won the Best National Costume Award in an outfit depicting the national Bird of India- Peacock.
On this special occasion, an ecstatic Srishti said, “This is a dream come true! I am very proud of myself right now and still can’t believe that I have won the crown. I have a long list of people to thank for their support but to name a few; I would want to thank God, my family, friends, Mr. Vineet Jain- MD Times Group and the Miss India Organization for their endless support. This wouldn’t have been possible without any of them. I am so delighted at this moment”.
