Krynica-Zdrój (Poland): It was a moment of glory for India when Aafreen Rachel Vaz clinched the title of Miss Supranational 2015 Asia and Oceania at the Miss Supranational 2015 beauty pageant here.
Aafreen, who was crowned Femina Miss India Supranational 2015, won the sub-title on Friday. The event was held at Malopolska Region here and was organised at the MOSIR (Hall of Sports) in Krynica-Zdrój. She has also received prize money of $1000. Last year, Asha Bhat won the pageant.
Aafreen was on cloud nine after winning the title and went on to thank everyone in her life for being a part of the journey.
She said in a statement: “It was a privilege to represent India at such a prestigious international pageant and I am honoured to win the title Miss Supranational 2015 Asia and Oceania for my country. I'm also thankful to my parents, friends and all supporters who stood by me throughout my journey during this pageant.”
She competed against 78 contestants from around the world at the seventh edition of the pageant.
In the finale, Aafreen looked stunning in a deep metallic gold gown designed by Gaviin Miguel. The gown had entwined glass bead detailing and a cut that accentuated her curves.
Stephanie Vasquez Stegman (Miss Paraguay) was crowned Miss Supranational 2015.
