For a minute of glory, Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez wore the Miss Universe crown and the sash ever so proudly, only for it to be taken away from her after host Steve Harvey soon realized that he made the biggest mistake of his hosting career. (Don’t worry Arianda, you still look like a queen.) And with that, a beam of light came shinning down on Miss Philippines Pia Wurtzbach as she was rightfully crowned as Miss Universe 2015.
Now, you could only imagine the amount of stress Pia had to deal with from all the preparations leading up to that big twist at the end. She certainly handled everything with grace and poise like a true beauty queen would, and she looked stunning in all her outfits during the prelims and the competition night.
Speaking of which, we have all the looks she’s sported throughout the contest below. Take a look and let us know which one is your fave.
After last year's national costume fiasco, the Bb. Pilipinas Organization reached out to Filipino designers to create the national costume to be worn by Pia in this year's competition. Designer Albert Andrada was the one resposible for this white mermaid terno adorned with pearls and capiz shells.
All the 80 contestants of the Miss Universe pageant were given the chance to pick out a bikini from Yamamay's latest collection. Pia chose a black and white striped number, which is reminiscent of the 1959 Barbie doll.
For the preliminary evening gown judging, Pia wore this bright red embroidered dress by Oliver Tolentino.
Making it to the top 15, Pia wore a fringed metallic mini dress with a blush pink bodice.
And then finally, for the big pageant night, Pia sported this royal blue Albert Andrada mermaid dress with pleated details on the bottom of the skirt and a sheer paneled back with diagonal embellishments.
Doesn't she look even lovelier with that crown on?
