I’m über glad that Bb. Pilipinas Grand International 2017 and Miss Grand International 2017 2nd Runner-Up Elizabeth Clenci is widening her career path. She recently hosted Miss Grand Australia – a stint she definitely enjoyed doing.
Watch the video below of the crowning moment of Miss Grand Australia 2018 where you can see and hear her hosting turns.
27 year-old Maria Jose Lora of Peru was crowned Miss Grand International 2017, succeeding last year’s Ariska Putri Pertiwi, during the (initially rain-drenched) finals at the Vinpearl Phu Quoc Resort and Villas.
Tulia Aleman Ferrer of Venezuela was named 1st Runner-Up with our very own Elizabeth Clenci getting 2nd Runner-Up honors. Brenda Azaria of Jimenez of Puerto Rico came in as 3rd Runner-Up and Nikola Uhlirova of Czech Republic closed the Top 5 as 4th Runner-UP.
When Miss Philippines Elizabeth Clenci stepped out onstage during the National Costume Competition of Miss Grand International 2017, everyone was in awe. Her traditional garb may not have the shock factor of what the likes of Miss Indonesia Dea Rizkita wore with the sim city-like structures protruding like a temple country on the train, but it maintained the stylish appeal that our bet has bet has been bringing in multiple doses ever since she landed in Vietnam.
Let us allow Designer Jearson Demavivas to explain the inspiration for his creation:
Lies at the heart of South Central Mindanao is a thriving community of Philippine’s renowned cultural tribe called the T’boli.
With the tribe’s rich culture and art, they also became popular with its creations such as jewelries and fabrics made out of indigenous materials.
This dress was inspired by the massive creativity of the T’boli tribe. This is a representation of a modern T’boli princess in haute couture and their uniquely designed guitar called ‘hegulung’. Philippine’s T’boli takes pride on its T’nalak fabric which designs are spawned from the dreams of the weavers. This has brought out the name of its province, South Cotabato, as Land of the Dreamweavers.
The design of this national costume represents the cultural structure of the T’boli tribe along with the colors and intricate beadworks, which speaks of their careful yet impressive art.
Thank you @mselizabethclenci to showcase this rich culture of Filipino in the International stage👏🏻🇵🇭❤️👑 you nailed it!!!

Miss Philippines Elizabeth Clenci has been standing out with her wardrobe for Miss Grand International 2017 every single day of the competition. Readers have been asking me who picked the outfits she brought to Vietnam. I know that – with helpful advise from trusted individuals – she practically chose every piece herself.
This was her look during the dinner reception (and birthday celebration of sorts for all October celebrants which included her) in Quang Binh. This is also where tomorrow’s National Costume Competition will be held.

The candidates will still be in Quang Binh until Saturday, October 14, before moving to their next destination. The National Costume Competition is scheduled tomorrow, October 12.
With the upload of the latest shots taken by Raymond Saldaña of Bb. Pilipinas Grand International 2017 Elizabeth Clenci above, allow me as well to share the video showing her during the Welcome Ceremony where she performed a Fleetwood MAC song number.
18 of the 78 delegates Elizabeth will compete with in Vietnam
From now till October 9, Ho Chi Minh City will be the home base of the Miss Grand International 2017 Candidates. They are now billeted at the Pullman Saigon Hotel where the full roster of seventy-nine (79) country representatives will be completed before moving on to their next destination in Vietnam.
So far, the organizers have come up with an early voting for Top 5 in Arrival which – while non-bearing in the competition – gives the recognized delegates the early headstart to hype their popularity even more. Our very own Elizabeth Clenci is not to be left behind as she was clearly one of those who got the attention of the locals and news agencies (watch the video below). And she is definitely bringing the heat on.
