Ariella Arida, the 24 year old beauty hailing from Laguna, placed Third Runner Up in this year’s Miss Universe. It is actually the fourth time in a row that a Filipina was able to be part of the Top 5. No doubt that Filipinas have that beautiful quality inside and out!
There were so many discussions that ensued during and after the pageant and one of them was the fact that Ariella wore a gown made by Columbian designer Alfredo Barazza during coronation night. A lot of people said that it would have been nice if she wore a gown made by one of our many talented local designers.
We’d love to know what you think, should she have worn a gown made by a Filipino designer?
