ME Philippines Sandra Seifert scored a double victory in the preliminaries of Miss Earth 2009. After clinching the Best in Swimsuit award last weekend at Fontana, she went on to score the highest in the long gown category and was named Best in Evening Gown as well. This makes her a shoo-in for the semifinals and possibly a spot in the elemental Top 4.
Here is a video of Sandra Seifert modeling her evening gown during the final preliminaries for the event.
