Miss Earth Philippines 2018 Celeste Cortesi has her eyes set on another crown. The Filipino-Italian is currently in the running for the Miss Universe Philippines title this year, and her victories in the Swimsuit and Casting Video challenges prove that she's making a strong case for it.
When the competition announced its Top 32 finalists last week, the queens were tasked to pose in their most scene-stealing, colorful outfits. Celeste's photoshoot, lensed by Junessa Rendon, most certainly caught our eye.
The beauty queen was clad in a chromed amber bustier top by Bonita Penaranda. The designer-stylist is known for crafting these ultra-sexy pieces for many of her clients, one of which was Nicole Cordoves when she hosted the Binibining Pilipinas Coronation Night just last year.
The Miss Grand Interntional 2016 runner-up was in a violet-hued ensemble, which took inspiration from a Tom Ford frock worn by Zendaya to the 2020 Critic's Choice Awards.
Bonita teamed Celeste's top with a tailored pair of fuchsia trousers, and capped things off with a statement-making slew of gold jewelry.
The vibrant color-blocking carried over to her makeup, which was done by Guillano Valenzuela. The electric-blue eyeshadow and nude lippie totally accentuated the piercing hazelnut shade of Celeste's eyes. Mae Castillo then took care of her tresses, slicking them back and tying them into a fierce braided ponytail.
You looked absolutely divine, Celeste! We can't wait to see you and the rest of the Top 32 on stage!
