Krystyna Pyszková Crowned Miss World in Spectacular Indian Contest

In a dazzling event held in Mumbai, India, on Saturday night, Krystyna Pyszková from the Czech Republic emerged victorious and was crowned Miss World. The competition, featuring 112 contestants, unfolded at the Jio World Convention Center, showcasing India’s rich cultural tapestry, traditions, heritage, arts, and crafts to a massive global audience.

Yasmina Zaytoun of Lebanon secured the position of first runner-up in the pageant, hosted by Bollywood filmmaker Karan Johar and Miss World 2013 Megan Young from the Philippines. The event marked a triumphant return of the beauty competition to India after 28 years.

Expressing her joy, Pyszková stated, “Being crowned Miss World is a dream come true. I am deeply honored to represent my country and the values of ‘beauty with a purpose’ on a global platform.” The coronation ceremony saw the outgoing Miss World, Karoline Bielawska of Poland, passing the crown to Pyszková, who then greeted the enthusiastic crowd and shared hugs with fellow contestants.

The participants, adorned in heavily embroidered skirts and blouses, showcased their talents by dancing to popular Bollywood songs, underscoring the fusion of glamour and cultural diversity at the 71st Miss World beauty pageant. Notably, India’s Sini Shetty made it to the final eight, continuing the country’s strong presence in the competition. Over the years, six Indian women have clinched the coveted title, including Reita Faria (1966), Aishwarya Rai (1994), Diana Hayden (1997), Yukta Mookhey (1999), Priyanka Chopra (2000), and Manushi Chillar (2017).

The event, covered by AP News, marked a significant milestone in the global beauty pageant scene, underscoring India’s prominence in hosting such grand spectacles.
