London: Britain's Miss and Mrs pageant, an event which inspires women from all walks of life to look beyond and explore their inner being, held its grand finale in early February 2019 at one of London’s top five-star hotels, the Grange St Paul's Hotel.

With the core belief that women can redefine themselves in order to embrace their beauty, it's a pageant that can bring international exposure for the winners. The event aims to dispel the myths about beauty by removing the restrictions on ages, height, weight, and community criteria which plague other competitions.

After months of preparation and a tense evening of anticipation, the winners were finally announced. Congratulations go to:

The Mrs category

Pooja Dahiya - Mrs Universe UK, Mrs Delicate, Mrs Fabulous

Rujuta phanse Kothare - Mrs Earth UK, Mrs Passionate

Preeti Pande - First Runner up, Best Catwalk

The winners were all delighted with their achievements, having been mentored by a dedicated and enthusiastic team who gave them copious amounts of advice and support throughout the run-up to the competition. The pageant was lucky enough to have the services of this array of talented experts in their field, to provide training in things like interviews, soft-skills, styling, and how to handle the media:

The winners will go on to represent the UK in other competitions, such as Mrs. Universe, Mrs Earth, Ms Earth, and Mrs Supranational, creating opportunities for the participants to make a difference in the world. It is hoped that this will be a platform to support social causes and improve communities, bringing a depth that is often missing from beauty pageants.


Britain's Miss and Mrs was also fortunate with the judging panel, managing to attract such names as Rehana Ameer, Rahul Nangare, Ginny Kakkar, Vimmi Dhillon, Harmeet Singh, Stephanie Hill, Grace Levy, Samantha Coote, Soumya Hv, Ash Oberoi, Sheetal Rane, Hannah Batten, and Navin Kundra to adjudicate the event.

“We cannot change the world in a day but by picking up various social causes we definitely can make a difference in our society making it a better place for our future generations,” said the pageant's founder and organiser, Priyanka Kanvinde.

She was also thankful for the hard work of the hosts, Arushi Rana and Ioan, for a smoothly-run show and also gave a special thank you to Meenakshi Paranjpe for being a life coach and Purva Kothare for teaching the importance of spirituality in stress.
