Ariella on Page 10 of The Nation (Abu Dhabi)
Ariella's reaction to the newspaper feature.
Don’t look now, but Miss Philippines Ariella Arida’s photo during the Tony Ward Couture Fashion Show was featured on the news section of The Nation (Abu Dhabi) with a caption that says it all – Universal Beauty.
This should warm the heart of our Miss Universe 2013 representative even more. Inspite of the pageant’s increasing pressure, positive bits of information can really uplift her, as mentioned in this online interview conducted by PEP.ph and Dyan Castillejo.

Your blogger is neither a fashion expert nor catwalk trainor. But this much I can say. Miss Philippines Ariella Arida performed way more than creditably well during the Tony Ward Couture Fashion Show of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Russia.
She is not statuesque. But she was ten feet tall during the instances that she modeled two of the designer’s creations. It may be that she was assigned the least flashy – albeit most commercial – attires. But she carried both with such sleekness that would convince prospective buyers to wear the white and red originals themselves. On the ramp, her pout is not forced, unlike a few others whose serious faces tend to convey different messages.

All in all, I would score her an 8.75/10 which is already high enough in my books. The two girls I gave 9s to are Jamaica and Spain. 😉
All the pretty girls and my Top 5 here are Spain, Jamaica, Philippines, Poland and Venezuela in that order.

Now you know why Miss Philippines Ariella Arida was not present during the Yamamay Meet-and-Greet Fashion Show. The participation in Tony Ward’s Couture Fashion Show for Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Russia was far more important a gig. Not only did it showcase our bet in her most elegant and fashionable look, it also afforded her the chance to be seen and appreciated by important people from the Press and Moscow’s Fashion Industry.
The photos and screen caps above show how much of a stand-out Ariella is. 🙂
