The stage shone with all three queens slaying together.
In this Instagram photo posted by Mercator Artist and Model Management president Jonas Gaffud, the reigning Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach was seen standing on stage with previous queens Gloria Diaz and Margie Moran during a tribute dinner hosted by Okada Manila last Saturday.
“All together for the very first time, Filipina winners at Miss Universe : (l-r) Gloria Diaz 1969, @piawurtzbach 2015 and Margie Moran 1973. #missuniverse #philippines #filipinas #okadadinner,” Mercator wrote on Instagram.
In the photo, the ladies were seen holding up bouquet of flowers.
The Philippines last took home the crown in 1973, courtesy of Moran. It was a short wait after the victory of Diaz in 1969.
Wurtzbach won the most controversial Miss Universe in history after its host Steve Harvey wrongly crowned Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez. Gutierrez had to be decrowned on live telecast to give way to the rightful queen.
Wurtzbach has led an advocacy for HIV awareness during her one-year reign.
After she turns over the crown, Wurtzbach would be serving as a Miss Universe ambassador and was also set to appear as special guest in the fifth cycle of the model search “Asia’s Next Top Model.”
Recently, Diaz’s daughter Isabelle Daza channelled her mom’s Miss Universe 1969 look during Tim Yap’s 40th birthday bash. RAM
