Sonam Pachey was one of the contestants from the Femina Miss India 2012 contest that immediately caught my eye. Sonam stuck out to me not only because she's very beautiful, but because she didn't quite fit the mold of what I thought "Indian girls" look like.
Come to find out, Sonam is actually Sikkimese. She was born in Sikkim, which is a small region in Northeast India which borders both Bhutan and Tibet.
Sonam ended up as one of the top ten finalists in the Femina Miss India contest. She also won the titles of Miss Beautiful Lips 2012 and Miss Beautiful Hair 2012.
