Having just finished watching the Swimsuit and Evening Gown Preliminaries of Miss Universe Philippines 2021, I came up with three constants. These are the three Finalists who – in my eyes – performed best in both segments. They are Beatrice Luigi Gomez of Cebu City, Izabella Jasmine Umali of Manila and Katrina Dimaranan of Taguig. In swimsuits, the quartet is completed by Mirjan Hipolito of Angeles. And in evening gowns, Leren Mae Bautista of Laguna fills the last quadrant.
The turns given by Beatrice Luigi in Furne Amato Izabella Jasmine Umali in Nat Manilag and Katrina Dimaranan in Martin Bautista were memorable.
Overall, I give kudos as well to Chella Falconer, Maureen Wroblewitz, Victoria Velasquez Vincent, Steffi Aberasturi and Janela Cuaton.
