A cool and confident Chandigarh based girl Kanika Raheja made us all proud when she was crowned as
Mrs. Universe West Asia 2016 on 11 th June 2016 at Sylvan Chef Farm, Vasant Kunj, New Delhi. She
walked the ramp wearing a beautiful blue gown designed by Althea- the fashion studio and flaunted a
gorgeous wine lipstick which pretty soon became the talk of the town.
She was one of the 5 delegates with international titles and Tiaras. The delegates were judged on the
bases of parameters like talent, intelligence, poise and elegance. Mrs. Kanika Raheja will represent her
title at the prestigious Mrs. Universe 2016 to be held this year in China. In this beauty pageant, BJP leader
and “Mrs Universe West Asia 2015” Smt. Ruby Yadav did the crowning ceremony in presence of senior
political leaders, Ambassadors of many countries & people from fashion world. When asked Kanika said
that the process of selection was rather grilling and that she realized in the whole process that beauty
pageants are not all about the external beauty but they are about how beautiful you are from inside in the
sense of what sort of community work you do and how you give back to the society.
