Michael Cinco has become the go-to designer of Miss Universe titleholders for their farewell walks.
Andrea Meza of Mexico relinquished her Miss Universe crown wearing a Swarovski-encrusted plum ombre gown by Cinco during the pageant's grand coronation night last Sunday, December 12, 2012 (December 13 in the Philippines) at the Universe Arena in Port of Eilat, Israel.
The 27-year-old beauty queen's successor is Miss India Harnaaz Kaur Sandhu.
PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) spotted other beauty queens wearing the masterpieces of the Dubai-based Filipino fashion designer.
Miss USA 2021 Elle Smith, a Top 10 finalist, looked stunning in a crystallized blue zircon gown, a bespoke Michael Cinco creation that highlighted her figure.
Michael also designed the champagne gown of Miss Universe 2016 Iris Mittenaere, as well as her gown during her farewell walk.
Interestingly, the iconic blue gown of Iris' predecessor Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzback was also a masterpiece of the renowned Filipino fashion designer.
For this year, Iris served as one of the seven judges along with Marian Rivera.
Bollywood superstar and Miss Universe India 2015 Urvashi Ratuela went for a dramatic look in her black crystalized halter gown by Cinco.
Both Iris and Urvashi's gowns are part of Michael's Spring-Summer 2022 called The Impalpable Dream of Gustav Klimt.
Gustav Klimt is an Austrian symbolist painter and one of the most prominent members of the Vienna Secession movement.
