Last April 9, Rabiya donned a collaboration between two local designers. She wore a pearl and crystal-embellished barong top by Chino Christopherson, which he aptly calls the Holy Mother of Pearls. Her stylists Rain Dagala and Em Millan paired this with wide leg trousers by Marc Rancy, finishing the look with jewelry from Luna by Drake Dustin.

According to Marc Rancy, the team wanted to achieve a chic look that preserves the traditional barong's cultural integrity. Chino Christopherson thinks it's an outfit that exudes confidence, which is exactly what Rabiya's disposition was before boarding her first international flight!
In an interview with reporter Dyan Castillejo, it was revealed that Rabiya left carrying eight suitcases filled with clothes from designers all over the country. Basically, we're definitely seeing more jaw-dropping outfits from her soon!
Here's a closer look at the beauty queen's ensemble, courtesy of the designers and her styling team Rain x Em:
Rabiya arrived safe and sound in Los Angeles last April 10. She'll be staying there until the coronation night on May 16 at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida.
Good luck, Rabiya! We can't wait to see what else you have in store for us!
