Who says that only women are interested in beauty queens?
While we don't have the slightest idea about how these contestants keep those oversized headdresses on, or how they manage to walk in those sky high heels, we still love watching these stunners do their thing.
But what’s actually more interesting for us is what happens after all the glitz and glamour has been washed away—when the these women are back to their normal, everyday routines. It's when they're in their most natural state that they give off that queenly glow.
You see, when our past and current queens are back in their comfort zones, that's when they seem to be blooming more than ever. In fact, they look more confident (and sexy, of course) when they're out vacationing than trying to prove their mettle under the pageant spotlight.
These beauty queens (and certified beach babes) prove that Filipinas are the most beautiful creatures in the world. To give us a glimpse of just how fantastic these women look while winding down, we compiled our favorite ladies’ best Instagram beach snaps below:
This sunkissed goddess never fails to make us double-tap whenever she updates her Instagram feed. Just the mere sight of her basking under the sun makes us want to book a trip to the nearest beach ASAP.
Oh how we’d love to go on an adventure someday with this doll-like stunner!
Whatever she does, whether it’s modelling or acting, there’s one thing consistent about Max—and that’s her love for the beach!
Our favorite #BalakangBabe just keeps rockin’ our world with her posts. Keep on flaunting those deadly curves, our forever Miss World!
Do you know that aside from being the country’s pride, MJ is also an engineer? Now that’s sexy!
She wouldn’t be crowned Miss Universe for nothing. Pia is the perfect combination of beauty and brawn. She’s always in demand and busy with her career, that’s why it’s such a refreshing sight to see her having fun. We all need some R&R, and Pia definitely deserves that!
Whenever we miss the waves, we visit Miss Universe Philippines 2017 Rachel’s Instagram account for our daily dose of the sea. Her well-curated IG feed is full of wonderful sights from both here and abroad. But our most favorite is whenever she visits the picturesque island of Siargao, giving fans a glimpse of the businesswoman behind Bake Siargao.
