I can’t help but gush over the awe-inspiring festival costumes of the winners of Aliwan Fiesta Queen 2014. If only our national beauty queens will wear the same during their international pageant stints, I’m pretty sure they will effortlessly stand out in traditional wear.
The winners, led by top placer Steffi Aberasturi and runners-up Shaira Lenn Roberto, Maria Gigante, Hazel Trasmonte and Michelle Marie Monte, all wowed me with their attires.
In fact, some of the non-placing participants also upped the ante in their respective festival gowns like the ones worn by Trixia Marana of Dumaguete (left below) and Lovely Gemma Abdul of Gensan.
