Miss Earth 2022

Kinoronahan si Mina Sue Choi ng South Korea bilang Miss Earth 2022

Miss Earth 2022Matapos ang 20 taong paglahok ng South Korea sa Miss Earth competition, nasungkit ng bansa ang una nitong major pageant victory nang ang 24-anyos na si Mina Sue Choi ay tinanghal bilang Miss Earth 2022.

Ipinanganak sa Sydney, Australia, si Choi ay isang communications student sa University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign at siya ang 2021 Miss Korea 1st runner-up (Sun) kasama si Kim Su-jin.

Ito ay nagsisilbing makasaysayang panalo para sa bansa matapos masungkit ang Miss Supranational 2017 sa pamamagitan ni Jenny Kim, na nag-iisang nagwagi sa bansa sa BIG 5 pageants (Miss Universe, Miss World, Miss International, Miss Earth, at Miss Supranational) bago ang makasaysayang panalo ni Choi.

Kasama sa iba pang mga placement ng Korea sa ME ang Yoo Hye-mi (ME 2005 Top 16), Seo Seol-hee (ME 2008 Top 16), Park Ye-ju (ME 2009 Top 16), Kim Sa-ra (ME 2012 Top 16) , Choi Song-yi (ME 2013 Fire/3rd runner-up), Shin Su-min (ME 2014 Top 16) at Lee Chae-yeung (ME 2016 Top 16).

Philippine Handwoven Fabric Inspired Makeup Looks ????

Despite the advocacy of aspiring and once beauty queens, they seem to be a common denominator in promoting the continuity of fashion with the introduction of the “new normal” caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

Just like the 2018 Miss Universe Catriona Magnayon Gray is redefining the country’s own product specifically the three Filipino fabrics inabel, inaul, and yakan mask.

On her Instagram, Catriona showed off her makeup and her choice of hand woven face mask.

If you remember the face mask of the 26-year-old Pinay beauty Bicol, Mak Tumang’s “lava” design will go with the “lava” concept during the 2018 Miss Universe coronation. Catriona’s “lava walk” and slow-mo twirl also wore her pink swim suit attire.

Also discussed is Gray’s brilliant red gown which is a clear symbol of the Mayon Volcano.

Several Miss Earth-Philippines candidates also first showdown this year in the production of face shield made from recycled materials.

For Iloilo’s China Jade Chu, not everyone is afforded to buy protective gear so there is an “eco friendly” suggestion to try plastic bottles as a face shield. In the image of the Ilonggo bet on Miss Earth Philippines, it can be seen cutting the top part of a large plastic bottle before it seems to be opened and sewn to the side to remove sharp textures.

Like Catriona, Roxanne Baeyens of the Cordillera Region supports her view of being “protected and crafty” in what seems to be a longstanding community quarantine in much of the country.
