The 2022 edition of the Miss Universe Philippines (MUPH) pageant may be over, but we’re still recovering from the coronation night’s fashion hangover. 

Beauty queens and music icons made a splash at the Miss Universe Philippines 2022 coronation night in their most glamorous looks. It was a beautiful moment in the universe, so it’s fitting for these celebs to show up in their best looks. 

So, allow us to cure your fashion hangover with these scene-stealing outfits from these iconic queens and singers.

Pia Wurtzbach

Pia transformed the MUPH stage into her personal runway as she showed up in four gowns inspired by Filipinas who were crowned Miss Universe.

One of the standout gowns Pia wore was a fiery red gown inspired by the lava gown of Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray. The asymmetrical dress with strategic cutouts was designed by Gladi Echavarre and Atsuko Kudo.

Beatrice Luigi Gomez

Pageant fans were at the edge of their seats when Miss Universe Philippines 2021 Beatrice Gomez pranced down the MUPH stage in a custom-made suit by Francis Libiran. The androgynous suit in wool brocade is sexy and chic, and it suits her to a tee.

Beatrice also donned a sophisticated, purple Francis Libiran creation when she passed on the MUPH crown to her successor Celeste Cortesi. The figure-hugging dress, inspired by the “vast beauty of the cosmos,” includes many shades of purple to keep it from looking one-dimensional. 

Iris Mittenaere

Even if she’s donning a simple pair of jeans or a t-shirt, Miss Universe 2016 Iris Mittenaere looks effortlessly elegant. The MUPH 2022 coronation night was no exception. 

Iris wowed pageant fans in a dramatic gold gown from Michael Cinco’s Spring-Summer 2022 collection. The dress is adorned with French paillettes, glittery accents, and floor-length sleeves. Stunning.

In her second look, Mittenaere expressed her love for the Philippines in an all-crystal number that pays homage to the Filipiniana. The eye-catching piece is also created by Cinco.

Iris also looks divine in a Francis Libiran custom-made piece adorned with multi-toned crystals, inspired by the mythical bird Sarimanok.

Demi-Leigh Tebow

Miss Universe Demi-Leigh Tebow looks like royalty in a purple velvet gown designed by Nicolas Jebran. With a gown as dramatic as hers, simple accessories are the perfect way to finish off the look.

Demi-Leigh also channeled her inner mermaid in a formfitting Michael Cinco piece from his Spring-Summer 2022 collection. The gown is adorned with crystals, making her look like a glass of champagne. 

Harnaaz Sandhu

Harnaaz embodied queenly vibes in this fiery custom-made number from Filipino designer Mark Bumgarner. The gown’s red color is to die for, and the gold neckpiece is the cherry on top of an already stunning look. 

Even Bumgarner couldn’t contain his excitement with Harnaaz’s sophisticated look. “Truly a dream to have met you and dressed you up Harnaaz,” he wrote.
