#Showbiz: Sajat enters final of Mardi Gras Queen 2024 beauty pageant

KUALA LUMPUR: Australian-based cosmetics entrepreneur Nur Sajat Kamaruzzaman has announced her participation in an upcoming beauty pageant, Miss Mardi Gras Queen 2024, and is set to don a custom-made national outfit.

In her recent Instagram post, @nursajatkamaruzzaman said she will be wearing a stunning costume inspired by the Langkasuka Malay Kingdom of Kedah.

"My national costume, that I've made myself, is now 60 per cent complete. (It's) inspired by the Langkasuka Malay Kingdom of Kedah.

"See me in the finals on Feb 24, 2024, @missmagiqofficial. I'm so excited!"

The annual transgender beauty pageant is organised by The Filipino Lesbians and Gays Community (FLAGCOM) and Friends and is scheduled for later this week.

The highly anticipated finals will take place tomorrow, on Feb 24, and the crowned winner will have the opportunity to shine at the Sydney Mardi Gras parade the following week.

As is tradition in many pageants, there will be a segment where contestants present costumes representing their home countries.

Sajat shared with her followers a preview of her elegant national costume that features detailed batik patterns and beautiful gold jewellery, paired with headwear.

She also posted a behind-the-scenes look at a photoshoot believed to be on her first day at the competition.

Social media users flooded the comment section expressing support and happiness for her doing things she enjoys.

"The costume is stunning, all the best Sajat. Make Malaysia proud!" commented @ella.hering

"Even though she cannot return to Malaysia, she always brings Malaysia's name wherever she is. Proud of you," said @ermyazman.
