ICYMI: Emmanuelle Vera is representing the country at the Reina Hispanoamericana 2021 after winning the title Reina Hispanoamericana Filipinas during the Miss World Philippines 2021 pageant on October 4.
With only a few weeks to prepare after being crowned, Emmanuelle flew to Bolivia for the international competition's coronation night, which will be held on October 30. We can already tell that Emmanuelle has been eagerly fighting to win the crown for the Philippines, as seen on her social media updates.
One thing that caught fans' attention was Emmanuelle's national costume. Emmanuelle stunned the audience as she flaunted her traje típico, a design made by Louis Pangilinan which was meant to "represent the hardworking Filipino fishermen who strive to thrive and succeed amid the increasingly tumultuous times."
If you're wondering why the gorgeous silver frock looks familiar, Emmanuelle wore the same national costume Miss Universe Philippines 2021 First Runner-Up Maureen Wroblewitz donned during the Miss Universe Philippines pageant. Despite having a short time to prepare for the international competition, Emmanuelle gave her best during the national costume presentation and carried her look with elegance.
Friends and fans of hers expressed their support for Emmanuelle in the comments section of her post, including Miss Eco Philippines 2021 Kathleen Paton, who said, "SO elegant and stunning queeeen!!! Enjoy every bit of the journey pretty gal! You're doing amazing with so little prep time."
Aside from being a beauty queen, Emmanuelle is also a singer-songwriter and actress. She was part of several music competitions and shows in the Philippines, including The Voice Philippines and We Love OPM. She also starred in TV shows and movies, most notably in the TBA Studios films Ang Kwento Nating Dalawa and Tayo Sa Huling Buwan Ng Taon.
