Gown: The new Miss Sri Lanka 2013 wore a beautiful ivory one shoulder gown, in a very Grecian Goddess style. The gown featured a ruched asymmetrical midriff and top detail; softly gathered flared skirt and lace and silver applique accents as well as an iridescent tulle side. Not sure if the big ol' earrings were a necessary accessory addition (with all of the stuff that was already going on with her gown) but as you know with pageant girls: The Bigger the Better...and More IS More!

Congrats to Iresha and Best of Luck at Miss World 2013!

Would have loved the skin bleach concession for that pageant. Or the one for plastic surgery. Talk about a lineup with that commodified so-called "ideal" westernized look. Almost as bad as South Korea.
