A Recap of Celeste Cortesi’s Miss Universe PH Competition Highlights

Here’s a look back on her journey to the Miss Universe stage

Pasay City’s Celeste Cortesi is the Miss Universe Philippines 2022 titleholder and the country’s official representative to the Miss Universe 2022 competition in New Orleans, USA.

She earned the title back in April 2022 during the Miss Universe Philippines 2022 Grand Coronation Night at the Mall of Asia Arena.

At the 71st Miss Universe pageant, the 25-year-old Filipino-Italian contender eyes the most-coveted title along with 84 other national candidates from all over the globe. The coronation night is slated to take place and stream live on January 15, 9am in the Philippines.

While everybody waits for the reigning beauty queen Harnaaz Sandhu to pass on the crown to the Miss Universe successor, Celeste’s spirit is in full swing as she prepares ahead of the contest with a series of intensive training and orientations. In an Instagram post, she shared a video of herself rehearsing a signature beauty queen walk.

“Days are getting busier and busier but super excited for what’s to come!” she put in the caption. Celeste Cortesi will be running for the Miss Universe 2022 accolade in hopes of following in the footsteps of Miss Universe winners from the Philippines: Catriona Gray (2018), Pia Wurtzbach (2015), Margie Moran (1973), and Gloria Diaz (1969).
