Beautiful Images You Missed From This Year’s MISS UNIVERSE 2016 Event In Philippines.

Year 2017 started on a good note for President Rodrigo Duterte and Philippines, where the 65th Miss Universe pageant was held on 30 January, 2017.

Pia Wurtzbach, Iris Mittenaere

The global beauty contest, Miss Universe 2016, was scheduled to hold at the Mall of Asia Arena as approved by the country’s Tourism Secretary Wanda Corazo Teo.

However, the Philippine Arena in Bocaue, Bulacan, was later confirmed as the main venue by the Miss Universe Organization after it rejected Wanda’s proposal due to “security reasons.”

At the glamorous event, Pia Wurtzbach [former Miss Universe from Philippines] crowned her successor Iris Mittenaere of France.

With the victory, Iris ended her country’s 63-year-old hunger for the crown. She also became the first European Miss Universe in 14 years.

Russia’s Oxana Fedorova won it in 2002 but was later dethroned.

Here are some pictures from the colorful event:
