From the very beginning, we wanted to create an experience that engaged not only the eyes and ears but also the taste buds. The night was adorned with scrumptious canapes, refreshing drinks, and delightful sweet bread, ensuring that every attendee was treated to a culinary journey.

Regal Affair: Crowning the Mrs Universe Official Queens

One of the highlights of the evening was the crowning of the new Mrs. Universe Official queens. The regal ceremony added an extra layer of prestige to the celebration, honoring remarkable women who have made a significant impact.
