It was a night of beauty and talent. And rising above the rest was Megan Young. The ABS CBN actress bested 24 beauties for the coveted crown.
The event was held last Sunday, August 18, 2013 at the Solaire Resort and Casino in Pasay City. Megan not only got the crown but a contract worth one million pesos form the Miss World Organization as well as gifts and services from various sponsors.
Aside from winning Ms. World, Megan also got Best in Fashion Runway, Miss Figlia , Miss Sports by Fila, Miss Olay, Miss Reducin, Miss Laguna World, Miss Bold and Glamorous by Revlon, and Miss Bench Body. Despite getting negative comments about her win, Megan deserved it as what she portrayed during last night’s show. Even the fashion and pageant world says she deserved her win.
Coming in at second, or the First Princess was Janicel Lubina from Palawan who is also the reigning Miss Bikini Philippines. Lubina also got Miss Photogenic and Best in Swimwear. Second Princess went to Zahra Bianca Saldua of Las Piñas City. Zahra is a Muslim and she was the only candidate who walked the stage in a one-piece swimwear without taking off her sarong. Zahra also got the Miss Pantene and Miss Friendship. In fourth place or the Third Princess is Bianca Paz of Nueva Ecija. Paz got the same award when she joined during the first ever Miss World Philippines Pageant. She also won Best in Long Gown and Miss Redoxfat. Closing the top five candidates is Omarie Linn Usana of Olongapo City.
Megan will try to get the crown this coming September 28, 2013 as the 63rd Miss World Pageant happens in Indonesia. Check out the gorgeous Megan and the rest of the winning candidates in the photos above courtesy of Rappler.
