Kevin Lilliana (born January 5, 1996 in Bandung) is an Indonesian model and beauty queen who was crowned first runner up for the Puteri Indonesia 2017 and was later crowned as Miss International 2017 in Japan by the outgoing titleholder, Kylie Verzosa of the Philippines. This is the first major crown in the history of Indonesia. [1][citation needed]

Pageant career[edit]

Puteri Indonesia 2017[edit]

Lilliana participated in Puteri Indonesia 2017, representing the province of West Java.[citation needed] During finals night, she placed 1st Runner-Up, and won the title of Puteri Indonesia Lingkungan 2017 (Environment Ambassador) in addition to winning Best Traditional Costume and being 1st Runner-Up for Miss Talent.[citation needed]

Miss International 2017[edit]

As Puteri Indonesia Lingkungan 2017, she represented Indonesia to compete in Miss International 2017, held in Japan, and was crowned at the end of the competition. She also won Miss Best Dresser. She is the first Indonesian to be crowned as Miss International and the Big Four international beauty pageants.[citation needed]

During the speech portion of the pageant, the women were given a chance to express their plans if crowned Miss International and share their personal advocacies. Lilliana's speech read:[2]

"Bhinneka Tunggal Ika, Indonesia’s national motto that means 'Unity in Diversity'. Indonesia is one of the few countries that has such a diversity of cultures, languages and beliefs. That is why I am a big believer in unity in diversity. This world is a beautiful place because of its wide variety, not similarities, and if I become Miss International I will spread these positive values and spread the culture of accepting and respecting differences, because I know that every country has their own cultures, character and identities. Therefore, let’s create a perfect solution by learning, understand and appreciating each other."

During her reign as Miss International, Kevin Lilliana traveled to Japan, Indonesia, Hong Kong, Macau, Malaysia, Myanmar, Singapore and Vietnam. Lilliana eventually crowned her successor on 9 November 2018 in Tokyo, Japan.
