Ms. Philippines MJ Lastimosa’s National Costume Gown at Ms. Universe Pageant

I have always been a fan of beauty pageant. I didn’t get the chance to watch the Ms. Philippines  2014 beauty pageant but was able to check that our current candidate for the Ms. Universe Pageant MJ Lastimosa has tried her luck twice to get the title and on the third time, she was able to bagged Ms. Philippines Universe.

Well, I have nothing to say about her beauty although i have heard from some that she’s much older than the other candidates but who cares, age is just a number as i always believe. But what took my interest is the recent pictures that are showing on my feed.

For the national costume competition she was wearing a creation  made by Colombian designer Alfredo Barraza which was inspired by the Panagbenga Festival of Baguio.

Different reactions are made, some says she was able to look good and others are just shocked and wished that it would be better if it was just done by a Filipino designer.

Panagbenga Festival is indeed a beautiful festival of flowers. Although the dress was full of colorful flowers, it’s just not as we wished it to be.

On the other hand, we all wish her luck 🙂
