Puerto Rico/New Delhi : Poland’s Carolina Bilawska has won the title of ‘Miss World’ 2021. India’s Mansa Varanasi ranked 11th in the competition. The 70th edition of ‘Miss World’ was held at the Coca-Cola Music Hall in Puerto Rico on Wednesday.
According to the official website of ‘Miss World’, Bilawska was crowned the 2020 winner by Tony-Ann Singh of Jamaica. After taking the crown of ‘Miss World’ 2021, Bilawska said, ‘I was shocked when I heard my name. I still can’t believe it. I am proud to be crowned Miss World… I will remember these wonderful days spent in Puerto Rico for the rest of my life.’ Poland has won this title for the second time.
