Outgoing Miss Universe Pia Wurtzbach is the “lady in red” for her final photoshoot as queen of the universe.
On its official Facebook account, the Miss Universe Organization on Friday posted a photo of Pia in a radiant red gown wearing a Mikimoto crown.
The photo was shot by Filbert Kung.
“Lady in red: Pia embodies elegance, tradition and grace in the breathtaking Mikimoto crown for her final photoshoot,” the post read.
In a video posted on YouTube about her final photoshoot, Pia said she was excited to try on the different attire designed by the country’s own designers.
She described her year-long reign as “bittersweet.”
“This is going to be my last photoshoot officially as Miss Universe,” Pia said.
“Wearing the crowing and everything – it’s a little bittersweet, but I’m excited, because we got some great wardrobe in here,” she said, excited about the attire.
Pia is set to turn over the crown to her successor during the coronation night of the Miss Universe to be held here in Manila on Jan. 30.
After her reign, Pia 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.”
Filbert Kung gave a sneak peek of the photoshoot in his Instagram account.
