Miss Philippines Rachel Peters wore her Sarimanok-inspired National Costume for the Miss Universe 2017 NatCos Show at the Mezzanine of Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino in Las Vegas. Val Taguba created the entire ensemble with the Gladiator heels custom-made by Jojo Bragais for our Queen.
Your thoughts, dear readers?
The photos on the left and immediately below the text of this post are the latest photos of Miss Philippines Rachel Peters.
I would bring your focus, though, on the swimsuit shot of Rachel on top as compared to the that of her roommate Bunga Jelitha below.
Do you like both or do you prefer Rachel over Bunga?
In comparison, here is the swimsuit image of Miss Indonesia Bunga Jelitha.
If the Philippines was the host, then the Official Welcome Event of Miss Universe would not be as casually held in front of the hotel residence and venue. It would be a black-tie event with VIPs and Officials attending and the public would be content with just ogling at the candidates from a safe distance in the red carpet.
But this is Las Vegas. And the ladies are only too happy to be within arm’s reach to most everyone watching.
Here is a 30-second clip showing a part of the said event in front of Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino on the strip.

Miss Philippines Rachel Peters is heating up!
Doesn’t she look real good in the group photo above? I know that some of you are thinking that her wardrobe pales in comparison so far to what Elizabeth Clenci wore during Miss Grand International. But since they had the same BPCI stylist (Bonita Penaranda), I trust that things will look up in the days to come, OOTD-wise, that is.
By the way, below are the judges for the Preliminaries on November 25.
Megan Olivi – Host the Ultimate Insider on Fox Sports 1 Morgan Deane – Director of Marketing for TAO Group in New York city. Wendy Fitzwilliam – Miss Universe 1998, entrepreneur, lawyer, philanthropist, host and co-executive producer of Caribbean’s next top model Bill Pereira – member of IDT Corp’s Board of Director and Chief Executive Officer, President and Co-Chariman of IDT Telecom Isabelle Lindblom – NYC based model scout for International Modelling agency IMG Cecilio Asuncion – Filipino American Producer. Founder and director of the world’s first all-transgender model agency, Slay model management.
Miss Philippines Rachel Peters is fun to be with, trust me. Maybe some of you think that there was an initial energy gap during her first few days in Las Vegas, but she has gotten into the groove of things now.
First stop, she wants to show her appreciation of her supervisor at Miss Universe who deals with the varying personalities of the candidates with extreme patience. Hence, a fun shot was in order.
And below, she gets into a groupie with the delegates from Singapore, Indonesia and Malaysia.
Below is her photo with TV Patrol US Correspondent Bev Llorente who interviewed her in Vegas.
More than a few days have passed and Miss Philippines Rachel Peters is in the thick of competition for Miss Universe 2017 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
There are no crucial pre-pageant events yet, but how are you sizing up her presence so far? Are you happy with her OOTDs and selfies and random shots?
Is she living up to the pre-arrival hype and all?
