Former Miss World Priyanka Chopra has flashed some light on her victory in beauty pageant back in 2000 saying that she was lucky not to have a swimsuit round at the competition. She finds it strange to walk on the ramp wearing nothing but a bikini.
The organiwers of the Miss World contest, which has been taking place since 1951, have finally removed the swimsuit round from their competition starting from next year.
Taking consigns of the development, Chopra told Absolute India, “Obviously it’s strange to walk in heels and swim suit on stage. Take us to a pool or a beach and do that shoot, that’s fine because that’s a natural environment. It’s weird and not natural.”
“I have found it awkward myself but I am happy that it didn’t happen with me in my years during Miss World. We didn’t have this swimsuit round,” she added.
South Africa’s Rolene Strauss has won the 64th Miss World winter crown this year held in London on 14th December. This was the last time when the contestantswere seen donning bikinis on the stage.
