The 44th Pantaloons Femina Miss India Pageant has started its search for icons who will represent India at international pageants such as Miss Universe, Miss World and Miss Asia Pacific this year. With a 44-year-old history, Femina Miss India is the oldest beauty pageant in India. According to the organisers, since it first began, the Femina Miss India pageant has changed considerably. The focus, they say, has shifted from finding the prettiest face in the country to finding a set of women having the level of finesse and class required to compete internationally. The beauty event calls for unmarried girls in the age group of 18 to 25 (as on Jan 31, 2007) to live their dream of a sparkling career in the field of fashion and provides them a stepping stone to international recognition. Entries close on March 4, 2007. Call Priya on 98808 19252 for details.
