Here are some of the latest photos of Binibining Pilipinas-World 2009 Marie-Ann Umali. The first one was taken when she visited the Joburg Zoo together with the other candidates and various children for the latter’s Christmas Party at the zoo. She is shown below with one of the front-runners for the competition, Perla Beltran of Mexico. The other shots were from a fundraising dinner event for one of Miss World’s beneficiaries in Johannesburg.
This is definitely the longest pre-pageant for any international beauty competition. The 114 ladies have been together for at least a month now and the coronation night is still several days away.
The finals for Miss World 2009 will be this coming Saturday, December 12.
