This year’s Miss Universe Philippine National Costume theme is a celebration of a bygone era of elegance and sophistication—the Manila Carnival Queens.

Note that the Manila Carnival Queens are considered the first Filipina beauty queens remembered by historians and pageant aficionados. 

According to the organizer of the pageant, they wanted to bring this heritage back to life and imagine how they would have looked today.

“Our delegates’ costumes are all masterfully created for them by world-class Filipino designers. It showcases the Filipina beauty, heritage, and artistry interpreted in modern, traditional, and avant-garde ways. Regardless of its interpretation, at the very core is the heart of a Filipina who is proud of her history, heritage, and country,” they noted.
