Behold the Evening Gown of Miss Grand Philippines Samantha Alexandra Panlilio for the Preliminary Competition of Miss Grand International 2021:
A hand embroidered sheer Rian Fernandez cape gown is inspired with the seafaring vessel of the Philippines being the first wooden watercraft excavated in Southeast Asia. The bodice is fully bejeweled with Caribbean Blue opal rhinestones, glass beads, oversized Austrian swarovski crystals. This piece is a perfect way to reawaken Filipino pride in a forgotten heritage of the ancient Filipino ingenuity.

The National Costume Competition of Miss Grand International was one great show-stopper of an event with the wonderfully creative garbs in display.
My three best are the ones of Malaysia (above), Peru and Ecuador. But I have to give an honorable mention to Italy who – for a change – presented herself in a Venetian Masquerade-inspired get-up.
Inspired from the Paru-paru Festival held during the 26th of November, Louis Pangilinan Fashion Empire executed a golden one-piece swimsuit as part of Samantha’s National Costume bodice which was hand-embroidered and embellished with beads, Swarovski crystals and sequins depicting the flamboyant tranformation of women empowerment.
Inspiring change, transition and hope. Like Miss Grand International Philippines 2021 Samantha Panlilio, from a caterpillar, she goes through several stories before she become the beautiful being she is today. A woman who is capable of changing and touching others with hope and joy — truly, a golden butterfly.

Hot! Hot! Hot!
Sharing with you now the Swimsuit Competition of Miss Grand International 2021 which was live streamed almost simultaneously with the Miss Earth 2021 Finals.
Check out the performance of Samantha Panlilio. If the same event was held atop a skyscraper last year, the location now is a marina with the ladies surrounded by boats and the like.
