Aishwarya’s stunning new pic shows why Miss India hopefuls fail at Miss World
Miss India World 2012 Vanya Mishra was in final seven of the Miss World pageant
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan had a new picture from her latest jewellery campaign put out.
Ironically, it was on the day India came close to winning Miss World 2012 – but fell short.
Despite all the brouhaha about Ash’s post-baby weight, it was a reminder that India has yet to find a Miss World like Ms Bachchan.
Miss India World 2012 Vanya Mishra was in the final seven of the Miss World pageant at Ordos, a mining town in China's Inner Mongolia.
Chinese entrant Wen Xia Yu walked away with the crown, while Wales's Sophie Moulds was first runner-up and the second runner-up position went to Jessica Kahawaty of Australia.
Mishra won two titles - the Multimedia Award that measured contestants' social networking skills and Beauty with A Purpose, an award for special dedication to a charitable project or cause.
However, when it comes to the title of Most Beautiful Woman in the World, mommy Ash, as these pics show, still rules.
