Krystyna Pyszková from Czech Republic Wins Miss World Title in India

Krystyna Pyszková, hailing from the Czech Republic, was crowned Miss World at an extravagant contest held in Mumbai, India on Saturday night. The first runner-up was Yasmina Zaytoun from Lebanon, who was among 112 contestants in the competition. The event took place in Mumbai, which is known as India’s financial and entertainment capital.

Pyszková expressed her gratitude at being crowned Miss World, calling it a dream come true. She felt deeply honored to represent her country and the values of ‘beauty with a purpose’ on a global platform. After receiving the crown from the reigning Miss World, Karoline Bielawska of Poland, Pyszková waved to the large crowd gathered at the Jio World Convention Center and hugged some of the other contestants.

The event showcased the diverse culture, traditions, heritage, arts and crafts, and textiles of India to a worldwide audience. Participants were adorned in heavily embroidered skirts and blouses, performing dances to popular Bollywood songs. This marked the return of the beauty competition to India after 28 years.

India’s Sini Shetty reached the final eight but was ultimately not crowned. India has had six winners in the past, including Reita Faria (1966), Aishwarya Rai (1994), Diana Hayden (1997), Yukta Mookhey (1999), Priyanka Chopra (2000) and Manushi Chillar (2017). The 71st Miss World beauty pageant was hosted by Bollywood filmmaker Karan Johar and Miss World 2013, Megan Young from the Philippines.
