Miss Universe Philippines (MUP) has set aside the temporary setback it received from the last Miss Universe pageant. This was the mood prevailing during the recent contract signing between MUP, led by creative director Jonas Gaffud and Kemans, ‘The Queens leveled-up body care,’ a new brand owned by couple CEO Eric ‘Doc Yappy’ and COO Vina Yapjuangco.
Gracing the event was the ever-gorgeous Miss Universe Philippines 2022 Celeste Cortesi, stunning in body-hugging orange dress, who showed no trace of her shocking non-inclusion in the Top 16 in New Orleans.
Asked about her immediate plans, Cortesi, who had a guest appearance in ABS-CBN’s Darna, said that she is looking forward to a possible career in showbiz.
An opportune time to celebrate International Women’s Month, the MUP organization has for the first time opened its competition for married women.
Binibinis celebrate Women’s Month
Meanwhile, the lovely Binibining Pilipinas 2023 candidates visited the The Art In Island, Media Square, the largest mixed media museum in the Philippines, beside Gateway Mall, in time with the observance of National Women’s Month this March.
Asked about what their thoughts on the celebration, most of the contestants said they were dedicating Women’s Month to their mothers and grandmothers.
“I always believe for women breaking the glass ceiling, and proving that women can do anything. Let’s take this time to really break boundaries, like what my grandma had done. Let’s celebrate these women that have inspired us our entire lives,” said Gianna Llanes of Palayan City.
“It’s all about women equity and empowerment, about giving everyone what they need to be successful. Women’s Month is dedicated to all the women out there, who should be allowed to speak up and be heard and to give chance to their capabilities,” said exotic beauty Rheema Adakkoden of Camarines Sur.
Sofia Galve of Rizal Province said she drew strength from her mother whom she considered her first teacher. “She taught me to always believe in myself, in my capacity and potential in order to succeed in this life.”
