Global standards of beauty have undergone a drastic change over a period of time, and beauty pageants are no exception. The criteria which can take one close to the title not just depends on looks but an overall charming personality as well, along with good communication skills and bright mind. “Grooming one’s mental health and sharpness is as important as their physical appearance and the world has realized that now,” says Priscillia Tan, who won the coveted title of Mrs Singapore Planet 2018 and Mrs Planet World 2018. According to this Indonesian born beauty you need a combination of spoken skills, good personality and a dynamic stage presence in order to get noticed and walk your way to the top of any beauty pageant as the best looking girls don’t always emerge as winners most of the time as the judges are looking for much more than just good looks.
