Exactly a year ago, Pia Alonzo-Wurtzbach gave the Philippines its third Miss Universe title. She also made the blue gown she wore the winningest creation by a Filipino designer.


Sunud-sunod ang posts ni Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach sa kanyang Instagram account ngayong Miyerkules, December 21.

Binalikan ni Pia ang pagkapanalo niya sa prestigious beauty pageant isang taon na ang nakalilipas.

Nasungkit ni Pia ang pangatlong Miss Universe crown ng bansa noong December 20, 2015 sa Las Vegas, Nevada.

Sa unang post niya, sinabi ni Pia na napagtanto niyang hindi lang personal achievement ang pagkapanalo sa international pageant.

“Throwback to the night that was about to change my life forever.

"Coming into the competition, I was ready to do my best to make my childhood dream come true. I really wanted to be Miss Universe.

“But as I was doing the years of training prior that night, I realized that there was something more to attain here than personal achievement.

“I wanted to proudly represent the Philippines and bring back home the crown.”

Sa isa pang post ni Pia, binanggit niya ang kanyang kontribusyon upang mabigyan ng pansin ang local Filipino designers pagdating sa international beauty pageants.

Hiniling daw niya sa national director ng Binibining Pilipinas Charities, Inc. na si Stella Marquez-Araneta na gawa ng isang Filipino designer ang isuot niya sa Miss Universe pageant. 

Sinang-ayunan daw ito ni Mrs. Araneta, pero may kondisyon.

Sa loob ng maraming taon, ang Colombian na si Alfredo Barraza ang lumilikha ng gowns ng Philippine representatives sa Miss Universe.

“After years of saving my brownie points from Madam Stella (national director) she finally agrees.

“But on one condition, 'Just make sure you win.'

“After being doubted for my color of choice, (I was told nobody wears blue in competitions anymore) I stood by my gut feel and advance to the next round.”

It's about time for Filipino designers! Months before competing I thought about what change I can do to the Bb Pilipinas organization to improve and help future Miss Philippines'. It didn't take long before I made a promise to myself that after years of not really having a choice on our final look, it's about time we show a Filipino made gown. Especially at Miss Universe. Tangkilikin ang sariling atin, diba po? The story behind this evening gown is long but quite interesting. Maybe one day I can tell a more detailed story. Basically this blue @albertandrada gown almost didn't make it in time for the final night because of flight cancelations due to bad weather in Manila. But to the rescue was another Filipino designer who is based in LA, @theolivertolentino. He lent me his beautiful red gown that I wore for the preliminary competition. (Judges select top 15 to compete for final night during prelims. I wouldn't have made it this far onto the competition if I didn't pass that round.) But then this blue gown finally makes it 2 days before the final night and with a little lambing I'm finally getting our national director, Madam Stella's permission to wear Filipino designers. Years of saving my brownie points from Madam Stella and she finally agreed. But in one condition, "Just make sure you win." ???? After all the drama and getting doubted for my color of choice, I stood by my gut feel and advance to the next round ???? Wahey! #insertbbp2014answerhere #pressurenamanmadam #challengeaccepted #luckycolor ????????
