After winning the Miss Asia title twice (and back-to-back) in 1982 and 1983 courtesy of Carines Zaragoza and Bong Dimayacyac, the Philippines finally claimed its first Miss Asia Pacific crown via Lorna Legaspi when she competed in Hong Kong back in 1989.
The first image above shows a recent photo of Lorna (taken last April) where she is wearing a blue gown by Designer Paul Rex Ramir Mateo. Second image (on the left) is her crowning as MAP1989 by outgoing titleholder Preeyanuch Panpradub of Thailand. Third image )(below) is the courtesy call with then Philippine President Corazon Aquino along with some of her runners-up.
Onwards to Miss Asia Pacific International 2018 next month!
