Walking into the beautifully decorated ‘Leela Ambience Convention Hotel’ in East Delhi was nothing less than walking into fashion heaven. Truest to its values the hotel was playing the best hospitality partner and completely looked the part. After clicking a few ‘oh so mandatory selfies’ amidst the gorgeous crowd, we were gearing up our cameras for the big event ‘FBB Colors Femina Miss India-Delhi’ and much to our disappointment we were told that photography is strictly prohibited.
Without letting the disappointment get to us, we lay our trust in the professional photographer and focused on the breath-taking scene around us. ‘Star- struck’ is not a term that I would usually use to describe myself but post Dangal, being in such close vicinity with Geeta Phogat made me want to go up to her and salute her for her determination and perseverance (although I didn’t).
The pageant began and we gave into the intricately designed garments that were showcased by the slender looking participants. Neha Dhupia’s entry on stage was as power-packed as she is. The oomph and the charm that she showcased on stage left us drooling for more.
The entire show comprised of three rounds in total after which the north zone winners were crowned. The judging panel comprised of ace designers Sunil Sethi and Namrata Joshipura, last year’s Mr. World title holder Rohit Khandelwal, Geeta Phogat and Neha Dhupia.
The highlight of the show was performances by Salman Yusuf Khan and Kanika Kapoor that left us tapping our feet and dancing on our seats.
