Mrs Malaysia P. Vanishaantini recently secured the coveted ‘Most Original Costume’ award for the first time in our country’s history and also placed an impressive sixth place overall at the Mrs World 2023 pageant in Las Vegas.

The 27-year-old Seremban entrepreneur captivated the audience with her distinctive attire inspired by the traditional ‘wau’. 

Datin Harveen Kaur, National Director of Mrs Malaysia World and Managing Director of Mrs Malaysia World Sdn Bhd, praised the costume for its impressive dimensions and highlighted its historic significance.

Most Whimsical Costume was won by Mrs Sweden, Most Exotic Costume by Mrs India and Most Favourite Costume by Mrs Korea.

The ‘Puteri Wau Bulan,’ costume was created by Sarawak’s skilled designer, Saran Anak Lagong and measures 3.8 metres in height and 4.8 metres in width, weighing approximately 10 kg.

The costume was inspired by the traditional floral batik patterns comprising Malaysia’s very own hibiscus, orchids, pagoda, Ixora, Bougainvillea, roses, and frangipani flowers.

The Mrs World 2023 title went to the contestant from Germany while the first runner-up and second runner-up were Mrs Canada and Mrs Colombia, respectively.
