When the 65th Miss Universe Cultural Terno Show unfolded last night from Calle Crisologo all the way to Plaza Burgos in Vigan City, all eyes were not just on the twenty (20) lovely contestants who paraded around the historic venue in the country’s most elegant traditional attires. The different creations worn were also scrutinized, with the best ones praised accordingly and the not-so-awe-inspiring outputs set aside for plain mention.
Miss Thailand Chalita Suansane wore what I consider to be the best for the night. Rian Fernandez created a flowy number that was carried by the wearer in such a divine manner. There is at once an ethereal quality that melds with the ballgown-like construction into a number allowing a very dignified and respectful stiltedness in the overall effect.
Miss Singpore Cheryl Chou wore a Jearson Demavivas creation that is simple in cut, well-executed and fits the wearer like hand to a glove. Her oriental features added more sparkle to the finely-sewn embellishments to the body of the gown. The results speak in loud volumes.
And finally, Miss Venezuela Mariam Habach was assigned to wear the Frederick Verches terno that could have turned disastrous in the hands of a less meticulous designer. The gilded design asks for a fine-tuning of all elements that go into the serpentina cut and showed a bottom-heavy effect which still allowed movements of the material with ease.
Now here are the rest:Feel free to share your thoughts, dear readers! 🙂
