For our very own Mister Philippines Andrea Biondo, thank you for representing our country well. We’re proud of you. Honestly, I thought he gave a pretty decent answer and thought he could land either 1st or 2nd runner up, but still 4th runner up is a huge accomplishment already.
The photo shoot was done in New York City and it was shot by NYC based photographer Raen Badua. Pia was styled by renowned fashion stylist Arnold Milfort, celebrity hair stylist Andrew Fitzsimons.
Dreams do come true for Anu Namshir because she was crowned last September 26 as Miss Tourism Queen International 2015 in Wenzhou, China. This 25 years old, 5’10 lass and Graphic Designer was not new in representing her country in an international stage. She represented Mongolia as well last year in Miss World which was held as well in China, in Sanya to be specific.

Finally, she’s now a title holder!. I’m talking about Jeslyn Santos. She was crowned as Miss United Continents 2016 in Guayaquil Ecuador. She’s the first Asian and Filipina to win this title. She delivered her speech in Spanish during the final round which captured the hearts of the judges and the audience. The 23 years old Mass Communication student from Hagonoy, Bulacan bested 27 other candidates in the said pageant last September 25, 2016.
The best way to celebrate your birthday is with your love ones and that’s what Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach did. She went home from New York just to celebrate with friends and families.
Her birthday party was a two part celebration. The first one was sponsored by PLDT Home where she had the chance to meet all her supporters, the Pianatics. The second was a surprise from all her friends from Aces & Queens, Inquirer, Fashion industry and her pageant sisters. It was held at Naxional in Uptown Parade, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig.
After months of preparation and 2 weeks into the competition, everything paid off for Angela Bonilla of Ecuador because she was crowned as Miss Global 2016. The 24 year old Mass Communication student from Quito, Ecuador bested 35 other beautiful contestants at the pageant night held at the Philippine International Convention Center in Pasay, Metro Manila, Philippines last September 24, 2016.
