Kokilam Kathirvailu walked home as the second runner-up in the Mrs World 2019 contest held last Saturday at the West Gate Resort in Las Vegas, United States. This is the first time in Mrs World history that a Malaysian has emerged one of the top three winners of the beauty pageant.
The mother of 3 was among 38 other hopeful candidates for the title of Mrs World 2019. The winner of the 2019 contest was Jennifer Le of Vietnam and the 1st runner-up, Matapa Maila Rikhotso of South Africa.
34-year-old Kokilam was crowned the winner of the Mrs Malaysia World 2018-2019 and has been training under the organisation for the world stage. The national director of Mrs Malaysia World, Datin Harveen Kaur, said that,”The pageant is a celebration of married women to capture the success of marriage and use it to bring more joy into the world”.
