- Miss Universe representatives come together in a Charity Fashion Gala
- It was held in cooperation with Frontrow Cares and Hope for Change Foundation
- Reigning Miss Universe Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters and Pia Wurtzbach walked the runway for a good cause
KAMI learned about this from Instagram. Photos of our very own 6 beauty queens make rounds on social media. They were together for a beneficiary show to help kids from Hope for Change foundation.
The show was produced by Front Row, the company who brought the ladies to Manila, together with Empire TV and the Department of Tourism. The 2017 Miss Universe candidates modeled for a cause during the fashion show Give Back: A Charity Fashion Gala held at the Solaire Ballroom on Thursday, December 7.
Reigning Miss Universe 2017 Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters, Miss Universe 2016 Iris Mittenaere, and Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach led the event, wearing creations from notable Filipino designers such as Francis Libiran, Mark Bumgarner, and Rajo Laurel. They were also joined by 3 kids from Hope for Change, the beneficiary of the fashion show.
What added special glitter to the event was the presence of six of our Miss Universe Philippines winners – Bianca Manalo, Venus Raj, Shamcey Supsup, Ara Arida, MJ Lastimosa and Maxine Medina – who also participated in the fashion show and presented onstage in chronological order of their years in competition.
Bianca Manalo was our Miss Universe Philippines 2009. She failed to enter Top 15 but still she made us proud. Venus Raj finished as fourth runner up in Miss Universe 2010. Shamcey Supsup is our representative in Miss Universe 2011 and won as 3rd runner up.
Ara Arida won as 3rd runner up in Miss Universe 2013. MJ Lastimosa was part of the Top 10 but didn't make it to the Top 5 at Miss Universe 2014. Maxine Medina was our representative in Miss Universe 2016 and made it to the Top 6.
KAMI was happy to see our amazing beauty queens together in one picture!
