Ever since winning the Miss Universe Malaysia pageant back in March last year, Shweta Sekhon has been carrying out her duties as the reigning title holder. Of course, much attention has also been centred on the coveted jewellery crown.
According to Shweta, who was also the Miss World Malaysia 2016, she has not worn the crown for the past 3 months. What’s more, she added the recent media event would probably be the last time she will wear the jewellery-embedded head piece!
In explaining to us about that, she recounted her own memories with the Miss Universe Malaysia tiara. “I feel like I have been (emotionally) attached to it, because every time I attend beauty pageant events I will wear this crown. I will also wear this crown in photo shoot sessions as well. I went through a lot of ups and downs with this tiara, that’s why I refer it as my ‘baby’,” shared Shweta.
The fashion model added, “I have also been informed that today’s event is probably the last time I will wear it and I admit I am not ready to let it go. Regardless, they have given me words of encouragement. I was also told that I am one of the pageant winners to hold it the longest. I am also happy knowing that a special replica of this tiara has been prepared for me.”
Not only that, Shweta also revealed to us she had a small scar on her head that she got during her earlier days of having the headdress on. “Every time I touch the scar, it will remind of this crown. The injury mark on my head somehow has a connection to it. People won’t understand this and will think that I’m being childish, but I don’t mind,” Shweta said.
The Kuala Lumpur-born starlet was seen during the press conference of Habib Jewels’ Merdeka campaign held in its headquarters in Ampang last Wednesday (12th August).
Themed “#SokongLokal”, the campaign aims to support and recognise several home-grown businesses and talents.
