There are women in sports who are an exception to the societal tag, ‘beauty and sports seldom go together’. Actually, the restless and painstaking practices, hard exercises, long staying games never give them time for beauty nourishments. Although, all these tough works alter their body structure and make the body and skin more rigid and rough.  

So it is very hard to find sportswomen in beauty pageants and on-ramps, even though they have many opportunities to be in the limelight.  

Nowadays, the men in sports are more likely to appear in many ramps and fashion shows, and potent to grab eyeballs of media and people around.

Sometimes, the glamorous Bollywood stalwarts may have failed to gain applause from ramp before this sporty glam.

The number of sportswomen who are confident to carry their beauty in ramps is excellently increasing in recent times.

The crazy fans are also showing much eagerness to see their favourite sportspersons in elegant outfits rather than in sports jerseys.

The talented and beautiful sportswomen who are also graceful in ramp walk and for fashion shows include:

Sania Mirza

As we know that, this professional Tennis player is excellent in her games,  and ranked as world’s No:1 player. She recently began to do ramp walks.

In the recent, Lakme Fashion Week 2018, the gorgeous Sania made herself perfect for the ramp and won millions of hearts.

She looked stunning in her specially designed ‘Pink Lahenga’ and was in glamorous makeup.  

This time around, Sania walked down the ramp for Anushree Reddy at the Lakme Fashion Week Summer Resort 2018.

In an official statement, the Hyderabad-based designer revealed details about her summer.  “The garments are a true reflection of the new age women inspired in the rich culture of her country. Sania Mirza is the perfect woman too, resonates with the spirit of modern India and she moulds beautifully into an Anushree Reddy muse.”

She really flaunted the ramp with her elegant steps just like the good moves she made in her badminton.

Saina said that it was a lovely experience to walk in the ramp for designer Vanni Raghupanti.

She personified the show’s theme of being beautifully strong. Geeta was dressed in a collared kurta with floral motifs, teaming it with colourfully striped pyjamas, folded up to the ankles. The showstoppers ditched traditional heels for comfortable jootis and shoes.

P V Sindhu

India’s Shuttler icon, P V Sindhu also flared as the showstopper for a footwear brand at the Lakme Fashion Week at the Jio Gardens.
