Sofia Shamia showed an evening dress for the competition

Ukraine's representative at Miss World 2023, Sofia Shamia, demonstrated a fantastic dress called Steel Lady, which will be the main evening gown of the Ukrainian at the contest. Designer Andriy Anikeev was inspired to create the look by the Mother Ukraine and its reconstruction last year.

The symbolic outfit conveyed the resilience, backbone, and steadfastness of the people who have been fighting the Russian aggressor for 10 years. The photos were posted on Miss Ukraine's Instagram page.

When creating the design, Andriy Anikeev was inspired by the indomitable spirit of his fellow citizens and an important historical event - the replacement of the Soviet hammer and sickle on the shield with a coat of arms.

"The image of the steadfastness of the Mother Ukraine and the modern woman flows into the dress. It is a symbol of a young, unwavering, beautiful state that is fighting the aggressor country. At the same time, it combines femininity and the metal core of our nation. This is what our image of the Steel Lady embodies," the Miss World team emphasized.

The highlight of the look was a monolithic corset symbolizing armor.

"The basis of the dress is a mesh with Swarovski crystals, which, combined with glitter, creates a honeycomb that resembles the visual of chainmail. The unexpected transformation of the image is the removal of this armor. And we see another side of the woman: fragile, sophisticated, sensitive. Here we see a corset embroidered with stones on a flesh-colored mesh, and the warlike chainmail turns into an exquisite garment. Silk wings-canvases that flow down in waves add a new texture to the image, weightlessness and lightness," the dress was described.

Earlier, Sofia Shamiya showed a pastel yellow cocktail dress, white stiletto heels and a handmade yellow and blue wreath by the Ukrainian brand YARADECO. She is also ready to pose in an outfit with national patterns and a costume based on the eponymous work by Lesya Ukrainka and the world-famous Ukrainian cartoon Mavka.
