If you haven’t heard of Mrs World before, it is actually a beauty pageant for those who are already married, thus “Mrs”. The pageantry was first launched back in 1984 and apparently was an offshoot of the beauty pageant Mrs America.
This year, one of the contestants of Mrs World 2022 is none other than 30-year-old Malaysian lawyer Mrs Olivia Constance Nicholas. Beautiful and intelligent, this lady has not only competed in Mrs World 2022 but also managed to “coin” a new record in the Malaysian Book of Records Holder 2022.
The Malaysian Book of Records Holder 2018 managed to set another new record this year with her beautiful “Destar Siga” costume made out of 10,000 individual 5-cent coins. This many coins incorporated into a single dress has never been done before thus becoming the first Malaysian pageantry-breaking history for the most 5 cent coins on a dress.
The record-holding National Costume was inspired by Malaysia’s very own Kadazan Dusun tribe from Sabah. The costume features “Destar Siga“, an Ibanese indigenous form of fabric weaving. Able to beautifully portray one of Malaysia’s ethnicities, the genius behind the costume is Mr Sara Lagong – a Sarawakian designer.
At the time of writing, the Miss International Malaysia 2016 is set to move on to the next stage of Mrs World 2022! At the end of this month, Mrs Olivia will head on over to Las Vegas and make Malaysia proud. We wish nothing but the best for her!
