'Ekta has all it takes to win Miss Universe crown'


Sat, Jul 04, 2009 11:45 IST

Ekta Choudhary Miss India-Universe Ekta Choudhary is all set for the Miss Universe pageant which will be held in Bahamas. Fashion designer Ritu Kumar , who's designing Ekta's outfits for the pageant, says the girl has all it takes to win the crown.

The 58th Miss Universe contest will begin from the first week of August and conclude with a gala finale at the Atlantis Paradise Island, in Nassau, Bahamas on August 23, 2009. India's contestant Ekta Choudhary has been perseveringly preparing for the pageant and is nearly ready.

The 5-foot-9-inch tall beauty has confidence, style, panache and intelligence to bring back the coveted crown, thinks designer Ritu Kumar.




"Every contestant is different and so is Ekta. She is tall, beautiful and confident enough to bring the crown back and make us proud," Kumar is quoted by a news agency.

Ekta is not a typical Indian beauty. She has short hair and has got five tattoos but Ritu Kumar says that it goes very well with her look.

"In Indian attire, she looks like a royal princess of the (nineteen) sixties. She has a perfect mix of Indian beauty and international style and I don't have any problem with her short hair," Kumar said.

Choudhary will carry approximately 40 dresses for the month-long pageant at the Bahamas. She will be one of 75 contestants from different countries across the world.

Ritu Kumar says that almost every dress that Ekta wears at the pageant, including western wear, will have an Indian touch.

"Western clothes would be minimal and the colour palette has all hues from India starting from burgundy, bottle green and pastel shades. When people think about India, they think about colours. So, there would be a riot of colours," Kumar said.

The last Indian to win the Miss Universe crown was Lara Dutta in year 2000.
