Someone is primed to make a national pageant comeback this 2022, and I couldn’t be more excited that she is ready to give it her best shot. The question is: which competition is she being earmarked for?
Your guess is as good as mine.
Let’s show some love for the lovely and captivating Desiree Justiniane!

PS. Last 2019, Desiree was one of the crowned titleholders in the inaugural staging of Philippine Global Queens. Due to the lockdown and pandemic, though, her supposed pageant assignment in the US for Miss Regency International was continuously postponed up until 2021.

The Press Presentation of ICSM Infinity Pageants – Philippine Global Queens was successfully held yesterday afternoon at the Grand Ballroom of Shangrila at the Fort amidst the presence of invited members of the media from TV (ABSCBN, GMA7 and TV5), Radio, Print and Digital.
42 of the 47 Official Candidates were introduced in their Twinkle Ferraren swimwear and Nere Ku heels, as the representatives of Davao City, Bukidnon, Malibay and the Filipino Community of Los Angeles sent their regrets owing to personal reasons beyond their control. It was one of the longest, if not the longest runway ever used for a Press Presentation and everyone agreed that the challenge made the ladies shine even more.
Darling of the Press Kylah Sanchez
The Darling of the Press was voted upon and Kylah Sanchez of Liloan, Cebu (right photo) – who was a Miss World Philippines 2018 Semifinalist – garnered the most support from the Press to be declared as such. The entries of Mandaluyong City and Agno, Pangasinan placed 2nd and 3rd respectively. The 18 year-old Cebuana is now considered a front-runner for one of the six titles at stake, including Miss Cosmos Philippines which she is specifically aiming for.
Below are photo grids of the ladies as captured by Daryl Navaretto for normannorman.com.

The Grand Coronation Night of Philippine Global Queens will be held at the same venue on October 18, 2019 where our 2020 representatives for Miss Cosmos International, Miss Regency International, Miss United International, Miss Global United, Miss Continents and Miss United Nations – will be crowned.
Last night during the Fashion Show For a Cause hosted by ICSM Infinity Pageants – Philippine Global Queens at the Grand Ballroom of Shangrila at the Fort in BGC, members of the media were surprised that one of the two finale runway models of Designer Val Taguba (left photo with Celeste) is the beautiful Celeste Cortesi who resurfaced in the public eye after missing for so long during the past number of months- especially during the entire competition period of Miss Philippines Earth 2019 when she was supposed to crown her successor as the reigning titleholder. I could not claim that she was officially dethroned by Carousel Productions owing to a lack of official announcement about the real status of her absence.
Be that as it may, Celeste remains as gorgeous as the first day she landed on Philippine shores to take on a pageant career as the representative of the Filipino Community in Italy. And in my understanding, she is eyeing a next move that will bring her to Bb. Pilipinas 2020.
Any thoughts, dear readers?

Best foot forward, ladies!
Tomorrow is your time to shine.
The invitational Press Presentation of ICSM Infinity Pageants-Philippine Global Queens will happen at the Grand Ballroom of Shangri-La at the Fort, Manila in BGC.
Best smiles. Best turns. Best poses.
And the chance to be voted as #DarlingOfThePress.
The six winners in the inaugural edition of ICSM Infinity Pageants-Philippine Global Queens will have the honor of wearing unique and exquisitely-designed crowns to be flown in by the pageant’s respective international franchises from overseas.
Just to give you a teaser on one of them, check out the crown for the national winner of its top title- Miss Cosmos Philippines. 144 carats with an appraised value of US$25,000.00 (or around PhP1.3M), it will be for the eventual winner to keep and not to be passed on.
Such a lucky young woman she will be!
The Miss Cosmos Philippines crown: not perpetual, but for the lucky winner to keep forever
The five other titles at stake are:
Miss Regency International Philippines
Miss United International Philippines
Miss Global United Philippines
Miss United Nations Philippines
Miss Continents Philippines
To most of you, these may sound like minor international titles after reading, but the US-based pageants are well-funded organizations.
Here are the latest photos of Almas Choudhry of Marikina City – now one of the Official Candidates of ICSM Infinity Pageants-Philippine Global Queens.
