Back in the day, Frenchwoman Ines Ligron was able to transform Riyo Mori into a Miss Universe-worthy contender back in 2007. The Japanese won the crown in Mexico City.
This year, she took care of the Singaporean entry – Rathi Menon – and I can see the changes in the girl from the Lion City. She is likely to make her presence felt, although there could be a similar channeling between her and Miss India Noyonita Lodh. Will that work in her favor or the latter?
I will watch out for more of Rathi’s turns in the pageant. 😉
