She’s certainly looking very guwapa!

Sultry and sophisticated, Rabiya Mateo celebrated her 25th birthday with a photo shoot that is heating up November weather.

“A woman can be whoever she wants to be,” Rabiya says in one of her posts. And she definitely chose to be her most beautiful self on her special day. On her birthday, Nov. 14, 2021, the former Miss Universe Philippines shared through social media three sets of editorial looks shot by photographer Andrea Beldua, all playing with a sensual theme shown through dainty dressing, stylized swimsuit, and tasteful skin-baring moments.

For the first set of photos, Rabiya served face in a floral and moody wet editorial. Stylist Kenneth Ramil echoed the theme by dressing her in a black corset and bodysuit ensemble with sheer panels by Jhon Aliliran. Intergalactica eleganza is the category for the second editorial. Think of Ariana Grande’s look in the “Break Free” music video but even sexier. Rabiya is an otherworldly beauty wearing a silver swimsuit and metallic harness by Yeye Pantaleon. The last images are about elegance and allure as she poses in the middle of fall-colored blooms wearing a Manuel Fule Lpt dress with a major high slit. Complementing all her looks are sparkles courtesy of jewelry by Luna By Drake Dustin.

“I just want to let you know how grateful I am to be reminded that I am loved by many. It’s [an] overflowing feeling of joy,” Rabiya ends.
