Speaking of peacocks..

Did anyone follow the Ms.Universe contest??? I feel its popularity may be waning these days.. Still.. for those of you , who havent heard.. The winner of this year's pageant is Ms.Mexico, Jimena Navarrete Rosete.. 
This years national costumes were hilarious (mostly)  stylish (rarely). 
Indian beauty , Ushoshi Sengupta posed in blue peacock styles dress .. designed by the Kolkata duo Dev R Nil

The dress puzzles me. It is obviously designed as a lehenga-choli. The wrap seems awkward. Nothing but the colours seem to be inspired by the peacock. It also seems heavy and over worked. Nothing light and delicate as a peacock. It makes me really sad that this is the representation for India's national costume.
