MISS UNIVERSE PHILIPPINES 2021 – Here are the 2021 Miss Universe Philippines contestants in their national costumes.
Reigning queen Rabiya Mateo, who placed top 21 on the Miss Universe 2020 pageant will crown her successor in the much-awaited MUP 2021 pageant. The new date for coronation night has yet to be announced after MUP postponed the initial Sep. 25 schedule.
The winner of the pageant will represent the country in the Miss Universe 2021 to be held in Israel in December. In a previous article, two of the top 30 delegates had to withdraw from the pageant.
Davao City’s bet Ybonne Ortega tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19) while Zambales’ representative Joanna Maria Rabe caught dengue. The remaining 28 delegates are currently in their bubble set-up at a hotel in Clark, Pampanga for their pageant activities.
On Thursday, September 23, the Miss Universe PH organization released the video of the candidates in their national costumes on its Youtube channel. The 28 candidates were dancing to BGYO’s “Kulay” while showing off their gorgeous outfits.
The 7-minute clip features the 28 Miss Universe Philippines 2021 candidates showcasing a variety of Maria Clara ternos for the national costume competition. They were divided into 4 groups: National Capital Region, Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao.
MUP director of communications Voltair Tayag told ABS-CBN news that they “wanted a fresher and younger vibe by doing a fashion music video.”
“We featured modernized forms of the Manila Carnival Queen theme that all the ladies were required to have… having a mix of old traditions presented in a new way makes for a more interesting experience. You can watch it repeatedly like a music fashion video,” he added.
