Congratulations to Valeria Vázquez Latorre of Puerto Rico for winning Miss Supranational 2018, with Katrina Jayne Dimaranan of the United States as 1st Runner-Up.
The three other runners-up are Magdalena Bienkowska of Poland, Wilda Octaviana Situngkir of Indonesia and Diana Romero of Mexico in that order.
Kudos to our very own Jehza Huelar for finishing in the Top 10. The two (2) Filipinas did well in this year’s edition.
Presenting the National Costume of Jehza Huelar for Miss Supranational 2018:
Designer: Russell Yasay of Fashion Institute of the Philippines – Ortigas
The costume is a contemporary equivalent of the traditional dress of the women of T’boli tribe, the well-kown dreamweavers of the province of South Cotabato. This craft was given a touch of two of the famous Philippine fashion trademarks, the terno and the butterfly sleeves. The top is made up of a silhouette of plain T’nalak fabric embellished with premium brass bells made by the finest tribal brass casters. The palazzo pants with train, which is inspired by the “lewek tedeyung” –an authentic T’boli-woven malong, is adorned by traditional accessories “hilet lemimet” belt –that signifies royalty in the tribe. Completing this masterpiece is a “sewat” headpiece which was intricately made of beads and is known to be worn by the treasured princesses of the tribe.
The SWORD signifies BRAVERY, while the FAN shows GRACE AND BEAUTY.
And at around 8pm of December 7 in Poland (3:00am of December 8 in Manila), the finals of Miss Supranational 2018 will be live streamed on the pageant’s FB Page and YouTube channel.
Watch out for our Queen Jehza as she tries to claim the country’s 2nd crown in the said contest. She is one of the running favorites. Hopefully, she will be rewarded with a top finish.
Jehza is wearing a Yong Davalos in the photos on the right and below.
Tomorrow, the Preliminary Competition of Miss Supranational 2018 will take place in Poland. And our Miss Supranational Philippines Jehza Huelar is definitely up in her game plan. She is getting favorable reviews from most everyone in the host city of Karpacz. With the momentum on her side, she will present herself to the judges oozing with confidence and determination to become our 2nd big winner in the contest. Miss Supranational 2013 Mutya Datul is present and I am sure she will give our Queen a few precious tips on how to do better in her performance.
In all the photos above, Jehza Huelar is looking edgy and gorgeous in Mark Neto Diaz shots wearing a Mark Tamayo “Toile de Juoy” dress with Bragais heels. And below, she slips into a Yong Davalos swimwear ensemble.

On a sidenote, I am just pleased that Julius Pegarro Jaguio has upped his swimsuit design aesthetics. He is really evolving in his craft.
Above is Miss Philippines Jehza Huelar wearing a Yong Davalos creation for the promotional shoot of Miss Supranational 2018.
Below (and on the left) is a series of new B/W photos taken by Polish photographer Igor Drozdowski who seems to really love the beauty of our Queen that he made a second round of shoots for her.

She did very well here in my opinion.
To set everything straight… yes, my 6 luggage were mistakenly left by the airline in London. (I took 3 flights from PH: PH to London, London to Warsaw, Warsaw to Krakow for almost 2 days). What I only got in my hand bag is a sweater, pants, 1 pair of undies, a jacket, my make up kit and all my documents including passport, etc.
BUT NOW ALMOST ALL OF MY LUGGAGE ARE HERE WITH ME (still missing one more). In my first 2 days in Poland, I humbly asked the girls of @misssupranational to lend me some clothes I can wear in our activities. Thankfully, everybody was so helpful I got to borrow clothes from them… mentioning @minhtu_nguyen for lending me her gown during our official sashing ceremony last night. To @andre.sleigh , Dorota, Kate of @misssupranational organizers, big thank you for all your effort in getting my luggage all the way from London…
Nonetheless, I stayed positive and determined amidst difficulty and doubt… I learned that we should not worry much for God will not leave us with an empty hand 💞
@wil_leohn texted me this before I left Philippines… now I’m sharing it to the #SupraNation “Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him.”
James 1:12 NIV
Now that the incident is over and done with, here is a series of black-and-white photos of our Queen as taken by Polish photographer Igor Dro for Miss Supranational 2018:
The departure outfit of Miss Supranational Philippines 2018 Jehza Huelar has been getting positive feedback. I just want to introduce you to the Designer behind it. She is Kannah Besino-Simbulan of Kannah Designs who specializes in bridal wear.
Sometimes, one just needs to be “discovered” to see their untapped potentials for the big time. Stylists Vhee Co/Francis Chee and Designer Xioti Chiu could be responsible for getting her to dress Jehza, although I believe that she is already a supporter of our Queen ever since she joined Bb. Pilipinas the first time.
Miss Supranational Philippines 2018 Jehza Huelar (in an outfit provided by Kannah Besino-Simbulan) was photographed awhile back at the VIP Lounge of NAIA Terminal 2 before boarding her Philippine Airlines flight that will connect to Poland.
Have a good trip, my dear!
I know that you will make us proud!
Below is a quick video message of Jehza inside the van going to the airport earlier.
