Miss Universe Philippines 2020 Rabiya Mateo had everyone’s jaws dropping as she elegantly posed for the cameras wearing a gown inspired by the Philippine flag for a photo shoot.
In an Instagram post by beauty camp Aces and Queens on Monday, April 26, the beauty queen was seen decking out the beautiful Filipiniana in a photo taken by Los Angeles-based photographer Filbert Kung.
“LALABAN PARA SA PILIPINAS,” Aces and Queens wrote as the caption.
The gown has predominantly red and blue colors with white accents and a sheer skirt that is shining in glitter. According to the beauty camp, the chic item of clothing was a “creation that reflects the Philippine flag.”
Last April 18, Fil-Am designer Kirsten Regalado, the creator of Rabiya’s Filipiniana, called the creation a “sunrise gown in red, white, and blue” in a video showing the beauty queen behind-the-scenes.
“How sweet the morning air is!” Regalado wrote. “Sunrise gown in Red White and Blue. Beautiful [Miss Universe Philippines Rabiya Mateo] in [a Kirsten Regalado] gown.”
Rabiya is currently staying in the state of Florida in the United States in preparation for the 69th Miss Universe pageant in May.
If crowned Miss Universe, Rabiya would be the fifth Filipina to win the crown after Gloria Diaz, Margie Moran, Pia Wurtzbach, and Catriona Gray.
