  1. The Miss International season reminds me of Mimilanie Laurel Marquez, the most successful Pinay who competed in the pageant. Days before the finals, she was named Best in National Costume for her Renee Salud Filipiniana with serpentina cut and was also selected as Festival Queen (forgot the exact name) prior to finals night

    • Hannah is the only Asian to reach the Top 15 so why was Japan declared as Miss International Asia??? Uso na rin ba ang homecourt decision sa kanila? Aside from Hannah, the other Asians particularly Vietnam, Indonesia and India are even way better than Japan.

  4. Good job Hannah !
    I did notice that she lacked energy on stage
    Maybe a cold or fever ? …

  5. OMG. Will it be a Top 3 for latinas as what I have commented before😲OMG na OMG.
    Expected ko nman na Ang layo talaga Yung MI beauty and grace package ni Hanna VS Kylie Lara and Mi Melanie 😊
    From Day 1 to Coronation night tinitingnan Yan. Hindi puede maFake. Good thing that Hanna’s effort landed on Top 15👍
    Congratulations Hanna. Join ka sa Supra baka makajackpot😊

  6. Okay lang ‘yan, still proud of Hannah for being the only Asian who entered the semis. Bawi na lang tayo sa Universe. Sa totoo lang, hindi ko bet ang Almodal gown n’ya. May sumpa ba ang Almodal gown? Si Janicel din noon, wearing Almodal’s, hanggang first cut lang.

    That’s all.

    • Janicel was Best Dresser. So if that was a curse, her beauty turned it into a spell! ❤

  7. Did she not stand out? I’m really confused.

    Or are we wrong to expect that Hannah perfectly fits the MI template?

    But Asian candidates were unilaterally excluded, so maybe the org wanted to crown somebody not from the region?

  8. Official Final EIGHT
    Dom. Rep. 🇩🇴
    Cabo Verde 🇨🇻
    Germany 🇩🇪
    Jamaica 🇯🇲
    Colombia 🇨🇴
    Spain 🇪🇸

    Peru 🇵🇪

    • I think Canada & Peru will battle for the crown , the very first for either country …


      POSSIBLES: Cape Verde, Spain

      NO CHANCE: Colombia, Dom Rep

  9. Hope springs eternal for India. Ano ba ang meron o wala sa India, bakit mailap sa kanila ang MI crown?

    • Mga hapon meticuloso pagdating sa amoy Ana.
      Alam ko kahit mga celebrities nila pag pinawisan iba talaga ang amoy
      That’s all.

      • Oh come on. Maanghit din mga hapon especially when they visit tropical countries. Hindi lang talaga strong ang odor nila dahil may gene sila na not smelly.

  10. My top 5 :
    Cape Verde

    SPOILER : Dominican Republic

  11. If it’s Raymond saldana, it must be extremely photoshopped. Sigh! Hannah looks so different in candid.

  12. overlooked delegates : ITALY, FRANCE, NICARAGUA, CZECH, BELGIUM

    Peru looks like a sister of Katarina Rodriguez …

    • You want Mutya to offer franchises to their handlers?… In case wala pa’ng countries nila for next year.

      Isama na, natin, sina Finland at New Zealand, the Continental queens of Europe & Oceania, respectively ; refer to Mr. Blogger's reply to @ Aron (above). OK ang mga 'buot'!

  13. Finally, her stylist opted for blue. Too much pink offers no contrast, her skin is already pink in tone 💐🌸🌼

  14. The dress looks absolutely fab! 👏👏👏
    I just don’t understand the need to always edit out her nasolabial folds from her face.
    She looks like a totally different person.

  15. Now, HERE’S a blue that harmonizes very nicely with the earth tones around…!…

    ‘Seagull blue’? 🙂

    Or, that blue glow when light strikes mother-of-pearl a certain way.

    (But clashes with the traditional dark azure of the ‘Ming’ saucer above it. Hhhmmm…)

  16. OFF TOPIC : Dolly de Leon is nominated for Best Supporting Actress at the Golden Globes … whoever wins in this has a 95% chance of winning Oscars best supporting actress … (her close competition is Jamie Lee Curtis) Angela Bassett & Mulligan too)

  17. Oh my God 👏🏾💐🙋🏻‍♀️✨🌸🌼💮 jaw drop
    A living doll 🎎

  18. Shades of Lolita fashion, the uber feminine street fashion in Japan. With lots of lace, ruffles and embroidery, in pastel colors (tones of white, pink and blue), this costume seems like a celebration of femininity, cuteness, modesty and beauty. I’m sure the Japanese will like it.

  19. This time costume has elegance. Ganda talaga. Just wow. Makakalimutan mo na competition pala ito. It is a class on its own. It is very “wearable.” If you will wear this in modern times on red carpet, you will make a statement. Viva Filipinas!

  20. I won’t mind Peru winning as she is pretty and seemingly nice though she does not have a queenly person
    But wow, pics above prove Hanna should be this year’s MI

  21. the optical illusion on this terno that makes Hannah look like as if she has broad wide shoulders like that of a man’s shoulders is stunning … this costume is a great match for Hannah’s look… I will not be surprised if she bags the costume award !

  22. Wow. Just wow. In the first photo, Hannah is literally a living and breathing Barbie doll. The pastel shades are a paean to the serenely beautiful autumn in Japan. Good luck Ms. Arnold

  23. Beautiful costumer. Suits her well. Not I am really excited to see what gown she will wear and whether she will do a twirl during her BBP stint…hihihih

    Best of luck Hannah babe! May the stars align in your favor.

    Curious observation, I did not see a lot of Peru and Ph together…hihihihihi

    I would love to see Spain and PH as top 2, besties and roomies forever….

  24. If Hannah can pull off this exact look on the show, I think she will get the nod of the Japanese judges. Kudos to the team for the perfect Filipiñana costume for Hannah!

    Sir Manny is a true creative.

  25. Beautiful and elegant. Not garish and gaudy. No feathers, no sequins, no big hula hoop behind her covered with flowers or sun rays. She can actually walk in this costume. And it fits the Japanese aesthetics of understated but well crafted, simple and elegant.

    Manny Halasan has a good eye for the sublime.

    World Peace.
