Alright, so let’s spill the tea on this year’s Miss Universe gig – it was lit with some major firsts!
Picture this: 22-year-old Miss Nepal, Jane Dipika Garrett, strutting her stuff and totally owning it as the first-ever plus-sized babe on that iconic stage.
She snagged the Miss Nepal crown earlier, and she’s all about repping women who don’t fit the usual beauty mold.
“I’m here to represent all women,” she declared, and we’re here for it!
Now, imagine the crowd going wild when Jane rocked a silver one-piece for the swimsuit round.
Twitter practically exploded with love.
One fan tweeted, “OH WOW Nepal’s Jane Dipika Garrett is SUCH A BEAUTY and defies stereotype in Miss Universe.”
Another was all about the girl power, saying, “Jane Dipika Garrett, you’ve broken barriers. Congrats on Top 20, my sentimental fave.”
But Jane isn’t just slaying the beauty game; she’s using her platform to shout out about hormonal health, PCOS, and mental health.
She spilled the tea to Hola Magazine about her own journey, saying, “A few years ago, I was a very insecure person.
Now, I love myself, and that’s success to me.” Major self-love vibes, right?
Now, let’s talk about another trailblazer – Miss Pakistan, Erica Robin.
Homegirl hit the stage in a pastel pink burkini, making a statement and looking fab. But back in Pakistan, some folks weren’t feeling the love, calling it “shameful.”
Even the Caretaker Prime Minister ordered an investigation.
Erica clapped back, saying, “I don’t understand where the backlash is coming from. I think it is this idea that I would be parading in a swimsuit in a room full of men.” She hoped to change the mindset about Pakistan being “backward.”
In the end, the crown went to Sheynnis Palacios from Nicaragua.
What a wild ride at Miss Universe this year, right? 🌟👑
