When the new pictorial of Reina Hispanoamericana 2017 landed in my inbox (thanks to my dear friend Voltaire Tayag of Rappler), I immediately thought of using the popular phrase “…a rose by any other name…” from William Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet as inspiration for this blog entry. This wonderful lady – who is always a joy to work with – decided to use Teresita as her public name right before, during and after her successful stint in Bolivia. But somehow, the showbiz affiliation is so strong that the popular nickname of “Win-Wyn” just could not be erased that easily from the minds of everyone.
Call her Teresita. Or call her Win-Wyn. She will always be our Reina Hispanoamericana 2017.
This latest photoshoot was a special one because our Queen herself had a say in every shot taken. The overall atmosphere, though, was fun and relaxed that everyone in the studio enjoyed doing all the layouts and did not mind the time at all.
Below are the other stills from the said shoot. Here are the credits first:

Bb. Pilipinas Globe 2018 Michele Gumabao would have easily qualified as member of the country’s Women’s Volleyball team currently competing in Jakarta-Palembang, Indonesia for the 18th Asian Games. But being one of our crowned national titleholders, she had to choose the responsibility of representing the Philippines on another front.
The Miss Globe 2018 will happen on Albania come October and the preparations are overlapping with the highly rigorous trainings for the Asiad. She simply where her priorities are aligned this year.
In the meantime, below are photos of Michele taken right after her makeup session with Carissa Cielo Medved amd before the pictorial for Metro.Style.
With the latest official shoot of the Bb. Pilipinas 2018 Queens over and done with (watch out for the Raymond Saldaña photos soon!), Michele Gumabao is starting to fine-tune herself for the task of winning yet another Miss Globe crown for the country. While the rumored hosting of Vietnam for this year’s edition has not been announced so far, she is ready to compete wherever the host city or country will be.
Below are photos from her recent makeup session with Carissa Cielo Medved. She has really come a long way – transformation-wise – from her intensive volleyball-playing years.
In this blog entry is Miss Universe 2017 Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters and her look during last night’s Grit+Glam Event at Cove Manila.
Just like a periodical score card, how do you assess her impact so far as the reigning titleholder? Is she doing a much better job than her predecessor? If you ask me, her classic beauty can stand the test of modern time. And after landing an endorsement shoot locally, it appears that she can still continue in sustaining the brand and image of Miss Universe till the next edition comes.
