With our eyes transfixed on our television screens and mobile phones, we noticed a few things you guys might have missed.
1. Miss France's shoes.
While most favored chunky platform heels to boost height, Miss France was the only candidate among the top three who wore single-soled heels with her long gown. Maybe this signals the end of platform heels, too? We sure hope so.
2. Pia Wurtzbach wasn't wearing a crown.
Instead of walking out with her crown and passing it on to her successor, Pia walked sans crown to let her natural beauty shine.
3. Pia's sleek, slicked back hair.
No beauty queen waves here! Instead of big and bouncy waves, she wore her hair straight and away from her face. So fresh!
4. Maxine Medina's red lips.
Everyone knows the beauty queen look is all about that intense stare. Smokey eyes and nude lips are a pageant staple, but our Miss Philippines went against the grain by painting on some rouge.
