Miss Universe: Maxine Medina photos at Preliminary Competition.

The Preliminary Competition

Date: 01/28/2017

The Preliminary competition - the scores from the night’s event along with an interview portion will help determine the Top 12 during the Miss Universe broadcast hosted by Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach and Derek Ramsey. Re-watched here: https://youtu.be/t9Kk_obFRhI


Long Gown

Miss Universe Philippines, who unsurprisingly received the loudest applause for being a candidate from the host country, wore an emerald green gown.

National Costume

For her national costume, Medina wore an ensemble inspired by the traditional vinta boat. Her headdress was meanwhile inspired by the country’s famous coral reefs.

Honest mistake: Medina later clarified that she indeed used the wrong word but meant to say "popularized".

In a video showing the terno fashion show in Vigan City held last January 15, Philippine bet Medina wrongly mentioned that the traditional Filipino dress was invented by former first lady Imelda Marcos.

"The terno was actually invented by our former first lady, Imelda Marcos. She invented these butterfly sleeves and they use these for covering their face," Medina said.

Miss Universe 2015, Pia Wurtzbach defended Medina from bashers but cautioned her from being more mindful next time.

"Perhaps next time she could be more mindful of the facts she shares especially now that she's the host delegate. But it's not over yet. We still have the final night," Wurtzbach said in an interview.

It’s a mistake. It wasn’t done intentionally. She honestly did not know. Are we really going to put our girl down? And now we know, if it wasn’t pointed out then it might have been not corrected but she didn’t know. Let’s not put her down,” she added.

She also said that Medina had been training for many months and needed all the encouragement she could get. (PNA, 01-27-2017)
