In the recent Resort Wear competition of Miss Philippines Earth 2013 at Hotel Pontefino in Batangas, the 48 Official Candidates paraded in their own interpretation of what to wear on the beach or the poolside. Many of them came out in various renditions of the standard two-piece swimwear. But for four of them, their attires raised not a few eyebrows. And for one (who appears to have been more tastefully styled by her scout), she went on to stamp her superiority by claiming Best in Resort Wear. She is Jannie Loudette Alipo-on of Cabugao, Ilocos Sur.
Miss Philippines Earth 2013 continues with the tradition started last year where a long string of medal-winning pre-pageant activities allows most everyone to take a thin slice out of the big prize pie. Although as learned from Miss Earth 2012, harvesting a lot of (Gold) medals is no guarantee of comfortably slipping into the semifinals, just shiny consolations if you will.
