Moral Convention Center in New Orleans, Louisiana, US. For the National costume round, Ms Rai turned heads in a golden outfit.

Designer Abhishek Sharma in an Instagram post talked about the ensemble. He wrote, “The intense gold metallic hand embellishments are a true example of the finest craftsmanship of our artisans. The lehenga is made from a hand-woven tissue fabric from the Chandheri District of Madhya Pradesh with the drape representing the image of a modern India.”
He added, “The wings represent the power of nourishment and care that India has shown in the difficult times towards the citizens of the world and took care and stood as a support with the notion of “One World One Family”.The national costume in its true sense is the essence of modern India and its approach to progressive thinking.”
