Congratulations to Shiela Teodoro DeForest of the Philippines for winning the title of Mrs Eco International 2019 in Las Vegas! She has added another honor to the country in international pageantry.
Shiela was a Press Officer in Her Majesty’s at the British Embassy of Manila. A former ramp model in Manila and Bodyshots Philippines veteran, she was one of the statuesque models for the North American launch of the Wow Philippines campaign. She later joined Emirates as a Flight Attendant, and subsequently met her husband Tim, who is a pilot for JetBlue.
During the pageant, Shiela wore a blue satin terno embellished with used tetra pack cut-outs as appliques – which won for her the Best Eco Costume award. Her video, which was shot primarily filled in Baguio to underscore the urgency of environmental problems in the northern highlands, won Best Eco Video as well. Among the top four finalists, she outclassed the candidates from Norway, USA, and Costa Rica who finished as runners-up in that order.
