23 years ago, a gorgeous woman made history as she became the first Indian to be crowned Miss Universe. It was a special moment for all the Indian women out there, as Miss Universe 1994 paved the way for their future at this pageant. We are talking about none other Sushmita Sen! She who won this prestigious title was one of the judges at 2016 Miss Universe, Manila, Philippines 23 years later. Ever since she landed in Philippines for the pageant, she has been taking a long walk down memory lane, posting pics and moments of her time there. Quite recently, she posted a video of her walking the ramp ( during rehearsals) once again. “This is it. The stage that changed my life, when India made history. What an honour it was to represent my country. As I walk the ramp one last time, I want you to know, I love you very very much. This is for you INDIA.” the former beauty queen said. The gorgeous actress walked the ramp in her black jumpsuit and her red overcoat, and she was just as confident and stunning as we saw her 23 years ago. Take a look at the video and you will know what we are talking about. There was lot of hooting in the background as she took centre stage. The kind of oomph and confidence, Sushmita brings to that stage has its own (undefeatable) charm. She also got her co-judges to walk the ramp.
