HYDERABAD: Picking the attractive dress that you see in the shopping mall and trying hard to be comfortable in it, when you go out, is a wrong fashion choice. One should understand their physic and the kind of clothes that suit them before bingeing on shopping,” says Amita Motwani, Mrs India International 2013 pageant in Atlanta, USA.
A pair of jeans and a shirt is what she prefers to wear to work everyday. A phycologist by profession, she has served a counsellor for rehabilitation centres like Divya Disha, breast cancer, HIV positive patients and to many underprivileged children in Bal Bhavan, an NGO and currently works with Jyoti Niwas.
“My profession has helped me prepare myself for the pageant. It helps me get positive approach towards life. The time I spend with them also helps me refresh myself,” she says and adds, “I support girl child education and encourage girls to move ahead in life and achieve their dream.”
An ambitious psychologist, who always wanted to make it in a big way and lived up to her dream, makes sure she is physically fit, her hairs are set in the right way and has put on clothes that makes her look beautiful and comfortable at the same time. “I prefer a classy look. Apart from that, I religiously follow cleansing, toning and moisturising routine and Kajal and lip gloss is a something that I don’t miss,” she says.
The beauty queen, who is against the belief that branded clothes is what makes you present yourself well, admires Nagarjuna and Hrithik Roshan for the impressive and classic look they present on-screen and off-screen. “Carrying an expensive bag and wearing the dress that is in trend does not impress anyone. One should learn to make a right fashion choice wisely,” she explains.
The image consultant says, preparing for a beauty pageant is a step-by-step procedure. Starting from body, one should also hone their soft skills, fashion sense, learn how to answer questions during an interview, present yourself well and and most importantly learn to walk the ramp in the right way. All this comes into making a person fit for beauty pageant.
Sharing her experience during the pageant she says, “As we get to interact with people all over the world, it’s sort of a cultural exchange where I get to talk to learn about other countries and share stuff about India with them.”
