Philippine bet Gazini Ganados slayed the stage of the Miss Universe 2019 pageant in her national costume.
The 23-year-old Cebuana is among the 90 candidates who paraded in their national costumes after the pageant's preliminary competition.
The event was held at Atlanta Marriott Marquis in Georgia, USA, Friday night, December 6 (Saturday morning, December 7, in Manila).

In a Facebook post on Friday, December 6, Cary shared some details about Gazini's national costume.
The designer wrote, "I created a national costume that is somehow worthy for an international event. I took my inspiration from our national bird.
"The design is not as flamboyant but the details are very intricate. Its hand-stitched all coming from the same fabric with my signature laser cut patterns."
