For the first time, all the three Miss Universe Queens that the Philippines has produced shared the same stage during a dinner party held on Saturday, January 21, at Okada Manila; a casino and hotel complex in Parañaque City.
As mentioned in the ABS-CBN story dated January 21, 2017, Okada Manila hosted the dinner that paid tribute to the three beauty queens namely, Pia Wurtzbach, the reigning Miss Universe, Gloria Diaz, the first Pinay to win the Miss Universe crown in 1969 and Margie Moran, Miss Universe 1973.
Pia said she was honored albeit a bit nervous to share the same stage with the two women she looked up to.
“First of all, this is the first time all 3 of us are together, so I’m a bit nervous right now. It’s truly an honor to be standing next to these two iconic ladies who I just used to watch on TV, and now I’m standing beside them, so thank you,” Miss Wurtzbach said.
The dinner party was attended by the candidates to the 65th Miss Universe competition that will be held on January 30 at the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City.
