Gloria Diaz, the Philippines first Miss Universe, has noticed that many older girls are still competing in beauty pageants these days.
Diaz made the reaction when she was asked to compare pageants then and now during an interview on CNN Philippines where she also talked about motherhood with her daughter Isabelle Daza.
“The girls are getting more beautiful, taller, healthier, but many are also older,” said the former beauty queen-turned-actress.
Diaz was only 18 when she was crowned Miss Universe 1969 in Miami, Florida.
She added that there was no plastic surgery before.
