Isabelle Daza won Best in Costume at Tim Yap’s 40th birthday bash—where he got down on one knee and made his boyfriend Javi Martinez Pardo his fiancé.
Understandably so: The party had a Miss Universe theme and Belle came as her mother Gloria Diaz aka Miss Universe 1969. She was dressed in a simple white one-piece, that red cape draping sexily over her sholders. The crown on her beautiful head was there as was the sash, and that famous wing-eye makeup. She even cut her sideburns and twirled it to remain ever-so-faithful to the winning look.
When she was announced the winner, Belle even reenacted her mother’s reaction when Tita Gloria won in ’69. Haha, gotta love Belle’s sense of humor.
According to Belle, it was Liz Uy who styled her overall look, with Nante Alingasa doing her hair and Jed Root Manila-representated makeup artist Anthea Bueno taking care of makeup.
Actress Lovi Poe and beau Chris Johnson won the Couple Costume Award, Iza Calzado won Best in Filipiniana, Designer Rajo Laurel won first runnerup, and Cristalle Belo was a finalist.
