LOOK: All Four Of Pia’s Stunning Looks At The Miss Universe PH 2022 Night
She paid tribute to the four Miss Universe Philippines queens in history—from Gloria Diaz to Catriona Gray
Pia Wurtzbach is a true queen. At last weekend's Miss Universe Philippines 2022 Coronation Night, the Miss Universe 2015 winner hosted the night. Like a true queen guarding her duties, she too dressed the part in not just one but four equally stunning looks. Each look had its own unique tribute to the four Filipinas who bagged the Miss Universe crown in history. Lensed by BJ Pascual, every look was given a different mood but each one was definitely ground-breaking.
She opened the night in a Mark Bumgarner dress with a sexy slit and sprinkled with glimmering beads and ostrich feathers. This is an homage to Miss Universe 1969 Gloria Diaz and her moon-landing answer in the competition as envisioned and styled by Adrianne Concepcion.
Back in 1973, then Miss Universe winner Margie Moran had an iconic flower pinned to her look. This was the inspiration of Perry Tabora with this yellow Jaggy Glarino look: a body-hugging piece with an electrifying hue. This was also a reference to the swimwear category in beauty pageants.
Pia referencing Pia? Yes! Her third look is an ode to her winning look in this now-recognizable hue of blue. Styled by Rainier Dagala and Em Millan, this Louis Pangilinan number shines as much as it should. It’s indeed very Pia.
Saving the best for her finale look, Pia mimicked Catriona Gray’s equally iconic lava dress in this bold red look styled by Qurator Studio in Gladi Echavarre and Atsuko Kudo gloves. It’s one of Pia’s edgiest looks to date, proving that pageant gowns can sure look fire!
