Pia Wurtzbach's farewell walk as Miss Universe was made even more memorable by her beautiful ball gown.
It was "crystallized," a perfect fit, and designed by Dubai-based Filipino fashion designer Michael Cinco.
Pia indeed was a sight to behold when she relinquished her crown to Miss France Iris Mittenaere during the Miss Universe 2016 grand coronation held last January 30, at the SM Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City.
Pia's gown was actually a part of Michael's 2017 fall/winter couture collection which he called The Impalpable Dream of The Maharaja: The Lapiz Lazuli Collection.
The gown debuted on the runway during his show at ARAB Fashion Week Fall 2017 in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
But did you know the royal blue ball gown had a twin?
World renowned opera singer Zarina Altynbayeva wore the emerald green version for a concert performance held early this month at EXPO Congress Centre in Astana, Kazakhstan.
In an Instagram post last July 6, Michael shared a photo of Zarina, and captioned: "Stunning opera superstar ZARINA ALTYNBAYEVA @zarina.altynbayeva.official wears a stunning emerald couture crystallized ball gown at her concert in KAZAKHSTAN... "
Last Wednesday, July 5, Zarina thanked the Filipino designer through an Instagram post for dressing her up like princess.
Part of her caption read: "BTW, @michael5inco the dress definitely stood out, thank you for your creation!"
Now the burning question is: are you team blue or team green?
