Here’s another unique national costume donned by one of our Philippine delegates in the international pageant. This time, it’s the pilot beauty queen Nelda Ibe now competing at the 43rd Miss Globe beauty pageant in Albania.

This Sampaguita and Ilang-Ilang inspired costume was the creation of fashion designer Frederick Berches.
In my opinion, it’s not as spectacular as Karen Ibasco’s Filipiniana costume but I loved that the designer incorporated the fragrant ilang-ilang flower into this piece! It’s quite refreshing to be honest! And kudos to our designers showcasing their talents in the international stage! Bravo!
It is such a busy month for pageants fans and pundits because of the simultaneous staging of different beauty pageants this month virtually all over the world.
One of these pageant is the Miss Globe which is currently being held in the southern European country of Albania. Binibining Pilipinas – Globe also known as our Pilot Beauty Queen Nelda Ibe has safely arrived a few days ago and is already making her presence felt in the competition. Nelda was recently chosen as one of the delegates who will be showcasing their talents. I’m not entirely sure how this would affect her standing in the competition but ya’ll know that it doesn’t hurt to be noticed.
So to Nelda, bring back the crown to the country! Mabuhay ka!
