Her costume was named ``Siam Aiyara'', deriving from the elephant that is a symbol of Thailand. The design drew inspiration from the ceremonial costume of a royal elephant combined with the costume of a court lady during the reign of King Chulalongkorn. The Thai silk pantaloons were fitted at the calves, and worn with white stockings and a flowing shoulder cloth. The fitted blouse had one puffed sleeve that resembled the ear of an elephant, while a gold fan in her other hand represented the other ear.

Congratulations to all the beautiful ladies who finally made it.
