My Favorite Miss Universe Philippines 2022 National Costumes
When you assemble the most talented of Fashion Designers, Craftsmen and Artisan Weavers in the country, the results are nothing short of spectacular.
The 32 National Costumes worn by the Finalists show the abundance of creativity, inspiration and tradition that went over and beyond the usual Filipinianas and Ternos our beauty queens wear in this segment of the competition.
Let me share my Top 10 Favorites among them:
1. Tata Blas – Pinuela for Dorothy Gemillan of Iloilo City
2. Hector Totong Gellangarin for Vanessa Caro of Iloilo Province
3. Danny Booc for Lou Dominique Piczon of Cebu Province
4. Adriano Samar for Jona Sweett of Aklan
5. Mark Joseph Sayad for Jeanne Nicci Orcena of Davao del Norte
6. Axel Que for Chantal Schmidt of Cebu City
7. Jermaine V. Nabong for Annabelle Mae McDonnell of Misamis Oriental
8. Pablo Mendez III for Ma Katrina Llegado of Taguig
9. Erjohn Dela Serna for Ghenesis Latugat of Baguio City
10. Francis Libiran for Michelle Dee of Makati City
Kudos to everyone who took part in the creation of all masterpieces! I may have cited only ten above, but the remaining 22 deserve to be applauded just as well.
Really?!!! No Ms. Mandaue?!!!
Ms. Ilo-ilo’s costume may be Aestheticaly apealing but the meaning and what it represents is the Worst!!!!!
1st of all it represents how the Spaniards tried to trick the Filipino Natives by burning our precolonial temples and living behind the statue of the Santo Niño as a “miracle” for us to venerate which is completely Heretic and Hypocritcal!!! Why does the Catholic Church allow this when it is in the 10 commandments that ” though shall not worship idols?!… That Statue of the Santo Niño is a lifeless Idol that the Spaniards used to manipulate and control our natives so that they could steal our wealth and resources!!! it’s the epitome of Evil colonialism and imperialism that we Filipinos suffer from upto this day!!! The Catholic church is the biggest oldest most succesful business in the world! They gain wealth by sowing anxiety among the masses and they use that budget to invest and control theextreme capitalist enterprises of nations! You are all too brainwashed by the Catholic Church by their “charitable works” but in truth, it’s their businesses like minning, banking, etc. that support extreme capitalism that is the root source of poverty, igonorance and environment distruction!!!!
THE CATHOLIC CHURCH IS THE TRUE EVIL!!!
I hope you think about that in your sleep Dorothy!😘
Clear winner for me is Davao Del Norte. The color combination is just stunning.
But if forced to decide on Top Three :
Davao Del Norte,
I am happy that the aesthetics in general have improved over the years. At the very least, there is no garish, school-project national costume I can see from the photos above.
I agree 100%!
Why no Lucena and Pasay in top 10 ? ?
I love the natcos of Dorothy Gemillan.
Hi hopefully someone may sagot. Ano ba ang camp ni Aklan? Thank you sa response.
I believe she is being handled by an Aklan-based team headed by Designer Adriano Samar.
She’s very beautiful sir Norman, I think the most gorgeous in this batch face wise. Celeste I know her from the past had her lips done. Aklan no surgical enhancements.
I will include Mandaue City among my top favorite.
