When it comes to beauty pageants, Filipinas would always be there to compete at all levels. Philippines’ obsession with beauty pageants probably began in 1969.
For us Filipinos, beauty pageants, are important social functions that have historically brought the nation together to socialize and support one another. It is an opportunity for the pretty and ambitious young women to participate and showcase their appearance, intelligence, talent, and presentation skills.
With that being said, after the back-to-back pageantry winnings the Philippines bested, thanks to Karen Ibasco and Winwyn Marquez, another Filipina has proved that truly a Pinay beauty has indeed international class and quality, even in the plus size category of a beauty pageant.
