Miss International 2017 Kevin Lilliana makes history for Indonesia

Kevin Lilliana, 21, of Indonesia won the Miss International 2017 crown on Nov. 14, Tuesday, in Tokyo, Japan. She bested 70 other candidates who were vying to become the successor of Miss International 2016 Kylie Versoza, 26, of the Philippines.

This makes Lilliana the first Miss Indonesia to win a crown at one of the big four beauty pageants namely Miss Universe, Miss World, Miss International and Miss Earth. The most international beauty pageant winner from Indonesia prior to Lilliana was Miss Grand International 2016 Ariska Putri Pertiwi.

On March 31, Lilliana placed as first runner-up at Puteri Indonesia 2017, which made her Miss International Indonesia 2017. She represented West Java.

Aside from winning the Miss International 2017 crown, Lilliana also won the Best Dresser award. Miss National Costume and Miss Perfect Body were given to Miss Japan Natsui Tsutsui and Miss Australia Amber Dew, respectively.

Tsutsui was fifth runner-up while Dew was fourth runner-up. Miss Venezuela Diana Croce and Miss Curacao Chanelle De Lau were second runner-up and first runner-up, respectively.

Lilliana studied interior design at Maranatha Christian University in Bandung, West Java. Before becoming a beauty queen, she was a model.

Here are photos of Lilliana during the Miss International 2017 grand coronation night:
