Miss Philippines Rachel Peters wore her Sarimanok-inspired National Costume for the Miss Universe 2017 NatCos Show at the Mezzanine of Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino in Las Vegas. Val Taguba created the entire ensemble with the Gladiator heels custom-made by Jojo Bragais for our Queen.
Your thoughts, dear readers?
Soon, Manhunt Philippines 2017 Daniel Azurin will leave for Bangkok, Thailand to represent the country in Manhunt International 2017 which will have its finals on November 27.
In this blog post are the pre-arrival photos of Daniel as photographed by BJ Pascual with styling by kealohagrey, grooming by Mickey See and makeup by Paula Maceda and Jim Ryan Ros.
Congratulations to Miss India Manushi Chhillar. You are Miss World 2017! The 6th blue crown for the South Asian nation.
1st Runner-Up is Miss Mexico Andrea Meza and 2nd Runner-Up is Miss England Stephanie Hill. Kenya and South Africa completed the Top 5.
Watch Manushi’s crowning moment below.
Laura Lehmann of the Philippines made Top 40. And with all the Top 5 BWAP Finalists declared as Beauty a with A Purpose Winners, that added to her performance value. She did not advance to the Top 15 Quarterfinalists anymore.
Let’s hope either of these links work
The photos on the left and immediately below the text of this post are the latest photos of Miss Philippines Rachel Peters.
I would bring your focus, though, on the swimsuit shot of Rachel on top as compared to the that of her roommate Bunga Jelitha below.
Do you like both or do you prefer Rachel over Bunga?
In comparison, here is the swimsuit image of Miss Indonesia Bunga Jelitha.
Miss Philippines Chanel Olive Thomas stands out in any group photo she is included in, just like these shots during the visit of the Miss Supranational 2017 candidates to Fire & Water Wellness Spa at AquaCity Poprad in the Slovak Republic.
The candidates will be in the first country stop of the competition till November 20 before moving to Poland for the remaining days of the competition leading to the finals in Krynica-Zdrój on December 1.
Keep bringing the sunshine on, girl!
Let’s cut to the chase. The biggest heart of Miss World is Beauty With A Purpose. And with that in mind, I am confidently presenting my Final Top 10 for the 2017 edition. One of the ladies with their respective BWAP projects below will be the successor of Stephanie del Valle:
South Africa – Ade Van Heerden
Philippines – Laura Lehmann
Russia, Polina Popova
England, Stephanie Hill
Brazil, Gabrielle Vilela
India, Manushi Chhillar
Indonesia, Achintya Nilsen
France, Aurore Kichenin
Thailand, Phatlada Kullaphakthanaphat
Australia, Esma Voloder
In my mind, I will not be surprised to see the Top 5 with three Asian ladies – Philippines, Indonesia and India – along with South Africa and Russia. One of the three – Laura, Achintya and Manushi – could be this year’s winner. Are you excited for such possibility happening?
At the end of the day, my #1 choice is and will be Laura Lehmann of the Philippines for the blue crown.
