Her being in the Miss Universe spotlight? It’s like a victory lap for body positivity and making sure everyone feels seen, especially in Miss Nepal where past winners struggled with body image. Garrett opened up about her own journey. She said, “A few years ago, I was a very insecure person and had very low self-esteem. Now, I love myself, and that’s success to me.” She’s all about inclusivity. “As a curvy woman who doesn’t follow certain beauty standards, I’m here to represent all women. I think there’s not one way to be beautiful, every woman is beautiful just as they are.”

And more stereotypes are being broken today as Miss Portugal Marina Machete and Miss Netherlands Rikkie Kolle are the first trans women to compete in Miss Universe. Meanwhile, Miss Guatemala Michelle Cohn and Miss Camila Avella represented married women and mothers who were allowed to compete for the first time at Miss Universe.
