Aren’t we all thrilled to see who'll be crowned the next Miss Universe Philippines? The swimsuit competition, evening gown competition, and Q&A portion are fast approaching for this year’s candidates, and we totally can't wait to see how it'll all pan out. Thanks to queens like Gloria Diaz, Margie Moran, Pia Wurtzbach, and Catriona Gray, we have a proud streak of pageant successes, and are always in full support of the next girls.
Before that, though, we hopped on some of the beauty queens' IG feeds to check out their casual 'fits. Since we're so used to seeing them in full glam and gowns, we were curious as to how they dressed up on their days off. Not only do these looks showcase their personal styles–they put their natural beauty in the spotlight, too! These ladies are totally proof that beauty isn't reliant on high glam–you can don a simple black slip dress and sneakers and be just as stunning.
Without further ado, here are ten beauty queen-approved casual OOTDs you’ll want to wear:
1. Katrina Dimaranan
Planning a look for a date night with your beau or even a girls’ night out? Glean some inspo from Katrina Dimaranan! The former reality TV star & Miss Universe Philippines Taguig is definitely giving us a sultry and tropical treatment of the silken floral slip dress. Oh, and let’s not ignore how she chose to pair white gladiator kitten heels with the thigh-high slit. Definitely a feminine and elegant look that’s too hot to handle.
2. Victoria Velasquez Vincent
Here’s for the girls who love staying at home during their free time! Miss Universe Philippines Cavite Victoria Vincent is a laidback person who loves journaling. Plus, she's finishing an architecture degree! So, make sure to take notes from her OOTD if you plan to be studying and chilling at home. Here she wears a black square neck tank top with a trusty pair of gray sweatpants. She never forgets to wear dainty jewelry as well! This sleek and easy look is perfect for catching up on work and attending virtual meetings.
3. Sam Santamaria
Looks like Miss Universe Paranaque Sam Santamaria starts her day just like us–with a cup of coffee! (It looks like she prefers her cuppa iced and black). If you’re planning to go for an early morning coffee run, then this should be the go-to fit for you. Sam styled her Araw the Line pieces with brown-tinted rectangular sunnies and a black leather crossbody bag! Her army green linen culottes and lilac wrap top made the perfect color combination. This look is cute if you wanna take photos after your coffee run, too.
4. Christelle Abello
We're guessing that Miss Universe Aklan Christelle Abello loves travelling! On her recent trip to Vegas, she wore a spaghetti strap bandana top, light wash ripped jeans, and some classic white sneakers. Take note of this outfit if you’re going to go on long walks during an overseas trip. She also spiced up the look with a black shoulder bag and black sunnies to match.
5. Beatrice Luigi Gomez
This look is definitely for the cozy-loving girls. During her off duty moments from MU, Cebu City rep Bea Gomez kept it comfy and casual by wearing a cream hoodie with some white skinny jeans. She sealed the deal with a classic sneaker: the Converse Chuck 70’s in a light denim colorway.
6. Jasmine Umali
Miss Universe Philippines Manila Jasmine Umali proves that swimsuits can be worn as tops. She posed for a daring yet feminine photoshoot that kind of emulates a Calvin Klein campaign shoot! Here, she paired the swimsuit top with a high rise pair of mom jeans. Jasmine's definitely serving a chic high fashion moment!
7. Jedidah Hefervez Korinihona
Miss Universe Philippines Davao del Sur Jedidah Korinihona picked a simple and functional outfit: A black second-skin unitard! If you’re not in the mood for a fancy 'fit, a one-piece or a romper will be your best friend. She styled the simple lewk with dainty jewelry that complemented her gorgeous golden-brown curls.
8. Leren Mae Bautista
One of the most beautiful and exciting ways to exploring your province is to veer away from the city center. Here, Miss Universe Philippines Laguna Leren Bautista donned a tan spaghetti strap dress, and totally gave us picturesque country girl vibes. We daresay that her dress matched the sheep. So adorable!
9. Janela Cuaton
We're mesmerized by the simple yet elegant outfit from Miss Universe Philippines Albay Janela Cuaton! In a move to rep her hometown, she made sure to snap a breathtaking photo in front of Bicol’s famous wonder: the Mayon Volcano. She wore a red spaghetti strap midi dress. She dressed down the look by wearing a pair of sandals–so comfy!
10. Princess Kristha Singh
Last but not the least, we Miss Universe Philippines Pasig Princess Kristha Singh, who sure is a globetrotter! During a trip to Paris, she wore fiery red trousers and a black halter top, achieving an effortlessly chic look. She also sported a structured black handbag and kitten heels, which made her OOTD more coordinated. This look is a staple when travelling during the summer–it's sure, it's casual, but still impactful enough to make it to a photo with the Arc de Triomphe!
