Our Queen Seductress in an Avel Bacudio creation. She now weighs 118 lbs and still losing more.
I know that some of you are waiting for me to blog about the photo of Miss Universe Philippines 2015 Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach. Dressed in a black Avel Bacudio number that will be part of the designer’s show for Mercedes-Benz Paris Fashion Week, she looks a lot slimmer and sexier.
And in an accompanying update of the same photo from Jonas Gaffud, there was mention of our Queen’s weight nowadays: 118 lbs. And I bet she intends to lose more to make sure that she will be in her best proportions for Miss Universe.
Of course, Fitness Guru John Cuay must be smiling at Pia’s improvements. After all, the two of them have agreed on a plan that will make her even more curvaceous in time for the mission. ;-)
São Tomé & Príncipe for Miss Universe 2015?
The news item in Portuguese that raised eyebrows in the pageant world. São Tomé & Príncipe for Miss Universe 2015 reportedly.
São Tomé & Príncipe on the map
This week, a news item
on RFI Portugues posted an article online that sent shivers of excitement to pageant followers worldwide. The mere mention of the words ‘Miss Universe host city’ already made everyone giddy and awake.
Never mind if the news item was not understandable to many. The more important thing to find out is where.
And then came the name of the place – São Tomé & Príncipe.
Where’s that place again?
First off, I would like to think that the publishers did not post that article as an April Fools’ Day joke. After all, it’s already August.
But could it be possible that the islands are a secondary host, much like what Malta is to Miss World. But it still won’t work out with Miss Universe. Yet. It’s much too costly to host one. And unless a multi-millionaire (or a billionaire) is willing to foot the bill or a Press Release from the Miss Universe Organization confirms everything, then all of this is just blog filler of a post.
São Tomé & Príncipe. I sure wouldn’t mind spending a few nights there. Could be a bery relaxing vacation.
I won’t even ask you, dear readers, for a long opinion. A snappy remark will do. ;-)
I'm loving the new look of Miss Universe Japan 2015 Ariana Miyamoto
Ariana when she won the nationals
Looks like someone is stepping up, and several notches at that.
Miss Universe Japan 2015 Ariana Miyamoto has started to show her new look and how. I’m loving the new hair. I’m loving the new aura. I’m loving everything about her. She has this more vibrant appeal now that can easily sway previous doubters to her side. If she keeps transforming like this, then I can’t wait to see how her pre-arrival photos will register.
How about you, dear readers? Are you liking Ariana now more than ever? :-)
Her name is Gabrielle Manaloto, and she is gunning for the Miss Universe New Zealand crown come October 24
Encouraged perhaps by the victory of Arielle Garciano during Miss World New Zealand 2014, another Filipina is set to try her luck in Miss Universe New Zealand 2015 after making it to the Top 20 ladies who will vie for the crown on October 24.
Gabrielle ‘Gaby’ Manaloto traces her parental roots from Meycauayan, Bulacan and is actually scheduled for a Philippine visit next month. She currently works for Farmers, a department store in Auckland and is also enrolled at the University of Auckland Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences.
If and when she does figure out well during the national finals and clinches the crown, then Gaby will have her hands full preparing for the bigger Miss Universe Pageant that could take place somewhere out there – but not excessively far away to require a tiring long-haul flight.
More about Gabrielle Manaloto soon! :-)

Miss USA 2015 Olivia Jordan steams up without going overboard sexy
One of Olivia's shots
Olivia Jordan had her first official photoshoot with Fadil Berisha as Miss USA 2015.
And if you get to watch the video below, this gorgeous beauty is sure to charm her way to your hearts even more. She has this sensuous and vibrant aura that will never fail to completely hook you. With just a flip of hair and a soft opening of lips, her total impact is just oh-so disarming.
And oh, the Miss USA DIC crown fits her head like hand to a glove. She personifies the title completely.
Watch now. ;-)

Pia did her own make-up above.
Miss Universe Philippines 2015 Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach has been the subject of more than a few photoshoots lately – both planned and impromptu. And at the Philippine Daily Inquirer where she is a style contributor, a pictorial was conducted at the spur of the moment. Since there was no immediately available makeup artist to do her face, who else but our Queen herself to test how she has improved in cosmetic application.
Using her own Dior and MAC brands, Pia is getting good at it. While I’m no expert in the same, my eyes are telling me that she has been learning well to date. ;-)

And the top favorite won Miss Universe Thailand 2015, just as I predicted
21 year-old Aniporn Chalermburanawong (#37) is the next representative of Thailand to Miss Universe after she was crowned by outgoing winner Pimbongkod Chankaew during the finals held at the Royal Paragon Hall of Siam Paragon in Bangkok, Thailand last night.
Pageant fans in the Land of Smiles expected a tough battle between her and 1st Runner-Up Chavika Vatrsang (#2 and another heavy favorite) as both tall ladies marched all the way to the top and became the last two women standing. In the end, it was the more vivacious Aniporn who got the nod of all the judges.
2nd Runner-Up is Chatchadaporn Kimakorn (#39), with Anchalika Na Pathalung (#25) getting 3rd Runner-Up. Ravinippa Hamid (#32) closed the Top 5 as 4th Runner-Up.

Congratulations to all the winners! :-)
