Pageant Girls.

Speaking of the Miss India pageant, let me introduce you to the winners. I love their coordinated saris with the elegant gold buti work, but I'm not a huge fan of the modified drape of the saris.

(L-R) Miss India Universe, Ekta Chaudhary, Miss India Earth, Shriya Kishore, and Miss India World, Pooja Chopra.
It's difficult to tell how the saris are draped as the girls are holding strategically placed bouquets. However, in this snap, you can get an idea from the side angle of Pooja Chopra. I do love Miss World 2008, Parvathy Omanakuttan's black tulle gown with the fitted corset-style top. I'll try to update with a better picture. With the curled hair and crown, she does remind me of - what else? - a Barbie doll.Photo Credit: Getty Images.

eh, none of them actually caught my eye :( India's been having a drought at the international pageants for a few years now!

Oh I know what you mean, Aarti. They're conventionally pretty, but nondescript. I haven't seen one as striking as say Sushmita, in a long time.
