Miss China Wen Xia Yu became the reigning Miss World in the glittering pageant which was held in China. China won the crown the second time.  India’s entry to Miss World Vanya Mishra was among the top seven.

Vanya Mishra was touted as one of the strong contenders. Vanya’s mesmerising dance on Dil cheez kya hai from Umrao Jaan got her a place in top seven.  Many Indians hoped Vanya would get the crown back to India. The last time India won was in 2000 when Priyanka Chopra won the pageant.

According to media reports, 23-year-old Wen is a student of music and aspires to become a music teacher.
