At the end of glittering ceremonies at the Manila Hotel Tent, Queenierich Rehman bested 24 other candidates to be crowned Miss World Philippines 2012 and become the country’s representative to Miss World 2012 to be held in Ordos, Inner Mongolia, China on August 18. She is only the 2nd Filipina to claim the national title, following Gwendoline Ruais in last year’s inaugural outing of the MW-dedicated pageant.
Together with the winner are her four princesses (runners-up) who make up the Top 5. They are 1st Princess Mary Anne Ross Misa, 2nd Princess Vanessa Claudine Ammann, 3rd Princess April Love Jordan and 4th Princess Brenna Cassandra Gamboa. The remaining ladies who placed in the Top 12 semifinals are Rufaida Babudin, Paulina Eliseeff, Kay Wigand, Carla Lizardo, Mariver Ocampo, Marie Loraine de Guzman and Vania Valiry Vispo.
Starting from this point, Queenie will only have three weeks to do final preparations for Miss World 2012. By mid-July, she will be given a formal send-off by Pageant Director Cory Quirino, before joining more than a hundred delegates from around the globe in different parts of China.
Best of luck, Queenie! Bring home that elusive Miss World crown! 😀
