By Medha Chawla: Miss Universe 2021 Harnaaz Sandhu flaunted her Indian roots on stage at the grand finale of Miss Universe 2022. The diva, who crowned her successor R’Bonney Gabriel at the event held in New Orleans, rocked a multi-hued lehenga for her first appearance on the stage today, January 15.
She slipped into a regal ensemble from the label Rimple and Harpreet Narula. Here’s a short clip of the moment when she was welcomed on stage. Clad in an ethereal and heavily-embellished lehenga set, she exuded oodles of ethnic elegance.
What Harnaaz wore was a blue-and-pink lehenga further enlivened with colourful accents and sequinned embellishments. Her voluminous lehenga skirt also boasted of chevron patterns. Apart from being doused in a splash of colours, her blouse and the dupatta were also accentuated with gota patti details.
The diva upped the ethnic glory with an ornate maang-tikka and a matching pair of traditional earrings. For her makeup, she opted for neutral hues and rocked glossy lips, kohl-rimmed eyes and a bit of beaming highlighter. Her hair, flowed down in soft curls.
Harnaaz Sandhu later changed into a billowing black gown designed by Saisha Shinde. Her dazzling ensemble was an ode to former Miss Universe winners from India – Sushmita Sen and Lara Dutta. Harnaaz won the Miss Universe title in 202.
