The finals of the Revlon Miss Universe Sri Lanka 2016 beauty pageant is slated to be held on 16 August, providing an opportunity for young Sri Lankan women to represent their country at the International Miss Universe pageant to be held later in the year in the US. 

Contestants from more than 86 countries around the world will travel to the US for almost a month of activities leading up to the Untitled-2main event. They will be judged in three categories - Swimsuit, Evening Gown and Interview - as they compete for the coveted title of Miss Universe 2016. 

Miss Universe Sri Lanka 2016 will be organised and presented by Essential Entertainment, in collaboration with Revlon Lanka Ltd. and many other joint media organisations. The finals will take place at the Hilton Colombo. 

The applications for Revlon Miss. Universe Sri Lanka opened in June 2016, calling all single young women between the ages of 18 and 27 to come forward to represent Sri Lanka at the 66th Miss. Universe Pageant. 

The competition will take place from July to August and will be segmented into the selection process, makeover and training, which will prepare the contestants for the finals which take place next month, where the winner will be crowned by Sri Lanka’s 2014/2015 Miss Universe representative Marianne Page.

Individuals will be invited to apply and be interviewed by a judging panel comprising professionals and eminent personalities in the fashion and beauty industry in Colombo. The selection process will narrow down the 14 participants of Miss Universe Sri Lanka 2016.

The makeover will be conducted by Revlon beauticians, with the hairstyles done by Ramzi Rahman Salons. Each of the 14 participants will receive training in hair and make-up techniques as well.

Lastly, the contestants will receive comprehensive preparation for the competition featuring catwalk training under choreographer and producer Lou Ching Wong and an intensive pageant training program which will include fitness training and professional and social skills training carried out by fitness trainer Krishani George and professional skills trainer Loretta Gunawardena respectively. 

Along with all of these programs, the 14 finalists will also participate in various events such as photo shoots, CSR projects, supplemental events and mini-pageants.
