Gwendoline Ruais, Miss World 2011 First Princess, arrived in Manila fresh and triumphant from London where she achieved the highest placement of a Filipina in the contest since 1973. She was immediately whisked to a Presscon at Midas Hotel (photo above). A day after, she was lined up for several TV guestings with GMA-7 including an interview in Startalk where she detailed her wonderful memories of the pageant.
Today, she will be part of Party Pilipinas. Catch her production number together with Miss World Philippines Princesses Nicolette Henson, Chloe McCulley and Jaysel Arrozal.
Welcome back, Gwen! 🙂

The crown and scepter for the first-ever Miss World Philippines
Just a quick blog to share the photo of the crown and scepter which will be worn and held by the winner of Miss World Philippines 2011 (who will compete in Miss World 2011 come November). The designs do look regal and expensive-looking , right? And franchise holder Cory Quirino (photo, left) was simply beaming with pride after trying it on to see if it fits the head right.

Encrusted with ruby red and diamond crystals surrounded by hundreds of small gemstones, the crown is sure to catch anyone’s attention and make the wearer feel queen-like in an effortless manner.
On whose lucky girl’s head will this crown be placed for the first time?
