The beauty queen is finally heading off to win another crown for the Philippines!

After what seemed like forever, Hannah Arnold is finally set to step on the Miss International stage. The beauty queen professes that she's been training for this moment since 2018, and now that her turn has come, she's more than ready to finally make her case for the crown.

Such a momentous occassion calls for a grand send-off. Last November 15, Hannah met with her supporters and some members of the press before she officially travels to Japan. Her stylists, Patrick Henry and Macky Combe, dressed her in a gorgeous white frock by Manny Halasan, making her a breathtaking sight when she entered the room.

The pristine white frock featured a high-low ballgown skirt, an off-shoulder neckline that extended into a flowing train on the side, and handpainted blue and purple feathers dotted with Swarovski crystals. The designer tells Preview that the main inspiration for the ensemble was the enigmatic Ibong Adarna.

Manny adds that on the upper part of the bodice was a gold brooch, and that there were actually pockets situated at her sides. He reveals that the prompt he got was to make it very "sweet and fresh," with a slight nod to Princess Diaries. We'd say he nailed it!

On her Instagram post, Hannah expressed how grateful she was for the immense support she's been getting even before she competed. "I think I am one of the luckiest Binibinis in history because I have two batches of sisters by my side. Thank you my queens for your kind words, warm hugs and friendliest smiles; it motivates me and makes me believe in myself so much more," she wrote.
