About Rani, Winner of Miss Cosmopolitan World 2019
Rani (Priya Rani Lama), the winner of Miss Cosmopolitan World 2019 held at Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia, is probably the first Nepalese citizen to win a major pageant such as Miss Cosmopolitan World 2019.
Rani (Priya Rani Lama), the winner of Miss Cosmopolitan World 2019 held at Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia, is probably the first Nepalese citizen to win a major pageant such as Miss Cosmopolitan World 2019 where there was fierce competition among the 32 contestants from 32 different countries. This was the first time that a Nepalese individual got to represent their country in the contest and winning it on the debut was unexpected and unbelievable for Rani. Crowned by So-yeon Lim from Korea (the winner of Miss Cosmopolitan World 2018), Rani has received an enormous response from her fellow citizens, experienced acquaintances and the legends of the Nepalese fashion world.
In her late twenties, she has already been a television presenter, an established choreographer and an actor who has now taken up a new passion in her industry as an entrepreneur. Yes, Rani can be seen busy with her startup “Rani’s Collection” with its first store in collaboration with Kapsule9 in Thapagaun, a posh locality in New Baneshwor, one of the biggest shopping hubs of Kathmandu, the capital. She has also published a video to advertise her spring/summer outfit collection on her YouTube channel.
Getting back to her achievements in the 5-year-old beauty pageant “Miss Cosmopolitan World 2019”, it is hard to ignore the fact that she had won the “National Costume Competition” in the event and that she was the first runner-up in “Talent Competition” at the event which was held at Marriott Putrajaya Hotel in KL. Beauty queens from the 31 other countries including Malaysia (1st runner-up), Netherlands (2nd runner up), Philippines (3rd runner-up) and Russia (4th runner-up) failed to impress the judges and the audience as much as Rani did, and she was able to win the title.
Having “enjoyed” less success in Miss Nepal 2010 and Miss Nepal 2015, Rani is an outspoken model who does not give up. The other success story worth mentioning is from her past when she was placed in the Top 20 of “Face of Beauty International 2018”.
Let’s talk about Rani’s achievements in other fields. Firstly, she garnered 4 million views for her dance cover of “Swag Se Swagat”, the hit song from “Tiger Zinda Hai”; she has displayed an awesome talent in the video which you shouldn’t miss. The next big thing was hosting the live concert of the famed Nepal Idol contest in Lalitpur of Nepal.
Finally, do we think Rani has the “girl-next-door” factor? Oh, yeah! She’s got what it takes to be the next big thing in the market, and she’s soon going to be out of reach because she’s a big fish in a small pond at the moment.
We wish Rani all the very best for her upcoming endeavors. You can enjoy Rani’s conversation with Trainer James on On the Couch with Trainer James Episode 5 on our YouTube handle, or watch it here:
