Yuiko Taguchi from Japan was crowned as the winner of World Supermodel 2019. The finale of the pageant was held in the Pearl Resort, Fiji. Approximately 25+ contestants competed in the pageant who were put across multiple challenges before selection of winner. Their week-long prelude in Fiji included rigorous training, walking for international fashion week, visiting local sponsors, VIP dinners, a visit to local school for distributing goodies, several beach & resort shoots and underwater shoot.
At the same event, Chelsea Freestone representing South Pacific region was declared as the winner in Teen Category. Representatives of Fiji and Pacific Island were declared as runners-up in Adult and Teen Category respectively.

It is interesting to note that Indian delegates Richa Sinha, representing South Asia, secured 3rd place in Adult category while Ashoi Dantra representing India was one of the Top 4 in Teen category. Both of them won their national pageant World Supermodel India 2018 organised by Yellow Umbrella. Richa caught everyone’s attention with her Fashion quotient, variations in look and Hi-Street Style statement. She was an instant fame and was among the top contenders even during preliminary judging. While, Ashoi Dantra, who has been a child artist in Bollywood and has done 100s of commercials, was evidently a competitive contender in Teen category with her friendly and extrovert nature. On interviewing Indian National Director, Sudha Subramanian, about how she feels with the success of her delegates at the international pageant, she joyously replied,
“This year we sent our best delegates who were class apart. Indian girls were amazing. Its a huge responsibility when you are representing your country/region and they all did justice to it, with stunning performances and giving a tough competition to other delegates. They have indeed made our country very proud. We have received amazing compliments and reviews about their performances. While Ashoi was charming and elegant, Richa was outstanding. Her outfits have been much spoken about in the entire pageant. She was entirely styled by renowned celebrity stylist Harsh Khullar.”
Our best wishes to the winners!!!
