The ball has started rolling for the Philippines' campaign to bring home the crowns for Miss Intercontinental 2016, Miss Grand International 2016, and Miss International 2016, respectively.
In a recent Instagram post, Binibining Pilipinas International 2016 Kylie Verzosa revealed her stunning, avant-garde National Costume for the Miss International 2016 competition held in Tokyo, Japan.
Last post for the day before we head to bed, National costume. Yes, all three activities for the day, Philippines signing off. ????????? #missinternational2016 #presspresentation By none other than @francislibiran. Thank you @francislibiran @victorharrylive! Thank you @Jewelmer for my golden pearl earrings. ????
She wore the gold-embellished, modern Filipiniana at the press presentation yesterday, October 12.
The gown was designed by Francis Libiran.
In a quick interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) during her send-off last September 28, in Novotel Manila Araneta Center, Kylie said, "I just want to do my best and I will do my best."
The media event also served as a send-off for Binibining Pilipinas Intercontinental 2016 Jennifer Hammond and Binibining Pilipinas Grand International Nicole Cordoves.
Back to Kylie, how would she represent the Filipinas at the Miss International pageant?
Her reply: "Someone who is very classy and elegant.
"Someone that they could look up to, someone who’s a woman of substance."
The coronation night will be on October 27.
