Although she couldn’t win the title Miss Nepal Miss Earth Nagma Shrestha managed to get in the top 8 in the Miss Earth 2012 contest held in Thailand. Nagma was among the top 8 beauties from Czech Republic, South Africa, Philippines, Russia, Venezuela, USA, and Brazil.
Earlier, top 16 contestants were Russia, South Africa, Germany, Venezuela, Korea, Italy, Mexico, Nepal, Scotland, Costa Rica, Poland, Japan, Czech Republic, Brazil, Philippines, and USA.
Miss Earth 2012 title went to Miss Czech Republic Tereza Fajksová. The first runner-up, Miss Philippines Stephany Stefanowitz was declared the Miss Air and the second runner-up Miss Venezuela Osmariel Villalobos was Miss Water. The third runner-up, Miss Brazil Camilia Brant was awarded the Miss Fire title.
Being on Top 8 is in itself a feat for the Nepali beauty. This result is better than Miss Nepal 2012 Shristi Shrestha’s success in getting in the top 21 in Miss World 2012 in addition Shristi was top 10 in beach beauty contest. Nagma’s record is much better than Shristi’s. She was one of the top 8 in the world (7th position in final) and she also won the silver medal in mural painting.
That makes Nagma the most successful Nepali beauty in international beauty contest. Congratulation Nagma! You have made us proud!
