The annual Mrs India Dubai International took place on February 19 at Le Meridien Hotel, Dubai. This year’s event saw Bollywood actress Dia Mirza; fashion designer Manali Jagtap; the director of the Carnival Group (who organised the show), Gagan Sharma; radio jockey Tarun; and Miss Dubai finalist Sukriti Khandpal take part.

Priyanka Mehrotra was crowned Mrs India Dubai International 2016, while Priya Jethani bagged the first runner-up title and Shweta Domingo won the second runner-up spot.

The Mrs International series began 24 years ago, in Atlanta, Georgia. Organisers say that it was developed with the aim of giving women aged 21 to 56, who have been married for at least six months and are residents of the state or a citizen of the country they represent, a platform to showcase their talents.

Contestants are judged on how well they present themselves in the Interview Competition; followed by an Evening Gown round, in which the ladies are accompanied by their husbands on stage; and finally, a Fitness Wear round. In keeping with the ‘Mrs’ theme, the winner of the paegent is crowned by her husband.
