Now, the designers have spoken to the Binibining Pilipinas leadership. They exclaim: Pinoy designs are not good enough for Miss Universe candidate Mary Jean Lastimosa? Here’s what we think MJ should have worn during the pageant!
Top designers Rajo Laurel and Eric delos Santos, who designed for Megan Young in her victorious romp of the Miss World title in 2013, revealed on Instagram the national costume and evening gown designs that would have catapulted MJ to Miss Universe glory!
Rajo first posted this design that should “be inspired by our nation’s fiestas, like the Ati-Atihan, I would take it from there and modernize it.”
Eric, on the other hand, posted the designs he would have created for MJ, plus echoing Rajo’s designs on his Instagram post:
Will Stella Marquez-Araneta consider tapping Pinoy designers next time? It’s a no-brainer. With the perceived debacle in the 2014 pageant, it’s certainly not a question anymore but a course of action.
