Philippines and her evening gown during the preliminary

As expected, Philippines' bet Mary Jean Lastimosa gave a top rate performance both in the Evening Gown and Swimsuit segments during the 63rd Miss Universe Preliminary Competition. The mermaid-cut white ensemble designed by Alfredo Barazza greatly accentuated MJ's drop-dead gorgeous curves and the way she carried herself on stage was just outstanding. The styling was almost perfect, I was expecting she'll don a ravishing red Leo Almodal or Michael Cinco's masterpiece or even a Kim Gan's beautiful creation but it's a 'Bazurra-designed' garb again. Good thing the gown was quite an upgrade than last years' Barazza pieces.

It is undeniable that MJ's catwalk is a cut above the rest. However it would've been more astonishing if she'll do a not-so-fast 'pasarela' come finals so she would be able to give more time to mesmerize the judges as well as the crowd. I know MJ is a pageant veteran and she certainly knows how to ace the game. I just hope and pray that the stars of the universe will perfectly align on her favor on the final judgment night and that she will emerge victorious as the fairest and the brightest among the sea of 88 world-class beauties.
