wig­gling­pen decid­ed to show it’s all time fav Miss India from the past.
So, I was look­ing for my best 5 Fem­i­na Miss India and real­ly got con­fused with so many beau­ties from Zeenat Aman to Juhi Chawla to Aish­warya Rai and final­ly, I  picked my top 5. 

1. Juhi Chawla(1984)

Girl with big dreams, sweet smile, and bub­bly nature Juhi Chawla won the title of MISS INDIA UNIVERSE 1984, crown by beau­ty diva Rekha ji.

Dressed up in Indi­an out­fit Lehn­ga Juhi not only stolen hearts of Indi­ans but when she went to rep­re­sent India in Miss Uni­verse held in Miami, Flori­da, USA was con­ferred with a spe­cial award for Best Nation­al Cos­tume Award which was again Indi­an out­fit Lehn­ga.

2. Shusmita Sen (1994)

Girl with style and smile since from child­hood with­drew her appli­ca­tion from Miss India know­ing that well-known face of fash­ion indus­try Aish­warya Rai is par­tic­i­pat­ing in the con­test but after her mother’s encour­age­ment she par­tic­i­pat­ed and her deter­mi­na­tion made her win­ner of the title.

Few­er peo­ple know that her jour­ney to Miss Uni­verse crown wasn’t an easy one. Being from a mid­dle-class fam­i­ly, she couldn’t afford a design­er dress for Miss Uni­verse but she and her moth­er has not given up.

Her moth­er had actu­al­ly trimmed her socks to make her hand gloves for the pageant. The final out­fit that she wore for the Miss Uni­verse wasn’t a design­er one. It was stitched in a local tai­lor shop. (I just loved her evening gown )

She is an exam­ple of real deter­mi­na­tion.

3. Aishwarya Rai (1994)
