Harnaaz kept her accessories to a minimum
Miss Universe 2021 Harnaaz Sandhu stunned in blue as she attended her welcome party in Mumbai.
Since being crowned Miss Universe, Harnaaz has been in the United States.
She has now returned to India and to mark her return, a welcome party was held in Mumbai.
Harnaaz looked like a vision to behold as she posed for the cameras.
Harnaaz looked elegant in a full-length semi-sheer gown that featured with striking sequin embellishments in blue, silver and black.
The sleeveless gown featured a V-neckline and an ornate bodice that was heavily adorned with embellishments.
The outfit was cinched at the waist with a belt-like detail and flowed into a tulle skirt-inspired silhouette.
Harnaaz continued to up the glam with glossy nude lipstick and smoky eyes.
Her hair was styled in loose curls with a side-parting.
To ensure all eyes were on her outfit, Harnaaz kept her accessories to a minimum, opting for a ring and sparkling earrings.
She completed her outfit with a pair of shimmering heels and her Miss Universe sash.
Other celebrities at the party included Anu Malik, actress Lopamudra Raut, veteran actor Ranjit, and his wife, Miss Diva Universe 2018 Nehal Chudasama, Mr World 2016 Rohit Khandelwal, and actress Preeti Jhangiani.
Fardeen Khan and Vindu Dara Singh also attended the Harnaaz’s homecoming bash.
Harnaaz Sandhu became India’s first winner of Miss Universe since Lara Dutta in 2000.
On her return to India, Harnaaz said:
“It fills my heart with pride and respect. I have been waiting for this moment for a very long time.
“It just brings a huge smile on my face when I see everyone happily yelling Chak De Phatte, India.”
“It’s overwhelming to see their support for me. So many of them came at 2 am to welcome me at the Mumbai airport. These next few days are going to be a lot of fun… I am getting to celebrate this win with the whole of India.”
She went on to speak about the “wonderful things” about being Miss Universe.
“There are so many wonderful things about being Miss Universe.
“But the one which is really empowering is that it gives you a platform to speak for yourself.
“It gives you the confidence to achieve what you want to and makes your vision clearer.
“It gives you the courage to be the voice of so many people all around the world, to bring about changes and break stigmas.
“Miss Universe is definitely about womanhood — celebrating women’s equality, women of colour and it’s also about transformation for those who are still doubting themselves.”
