LOOK: Kylie Verzosa’s first official shoot as Miss International
Days after winning the crown, Miss International 2016 Kylie Verzosa is living the dream as reigning queen, and one of her first tasks is an official photoshoot.
The official Miss International Instagram account on Sunday shared a photo of the first official shoot of the pageant winners.
The photo showed Verzosa at the center wearing her crown surrounded by her runners-up from Australia, Indonesia, Nicaragua, and the United States.
Besting 68 other contestants, Verzosa bagged the sixth Miss International title for the Philippines last Thursday in Tokyo, Japan. Bea Rose Santiago last won the crown for the Philippines in 2013.
Other Filipino winners of the Miss International pageant were Gemma Cruz (1963), Aurora Pijuan (1970), Melanie Marquez (1979), and Precious Lara Quigaman (2005).
Verzosa, a favorite in the 2016 Bilibining Pilipinas pageant, said international understanding and mental health awareness will be the focus of her advocacy projects./rga
