Shweta Sekhon finally took to her Instagram to address the whole controversy surrounding the National Costume competition held during the recent Miss Universe 2019.

For those who don’t know, it was initially announced via Miss Universe’s official Twitter that Shweta had managed to bring home the glory for the costume category. However, it was later revealed that the real winner of the competition was the Philippines, and not Malaysia.

In the post, the 22-year-old Malaysian beauty assured everyone that she is “totally fine” with not winning the competition. She posted a photo of herself in a stunning purple evening dress, with a lengthy caption that reads:

“No words can ever describe how grateful am I to the Lord for this crazy journey of mine at Miss Universe.
