Thailand’s national costume revelation and surprise from Sophida with her newly-refined look!

Miss Universe Thailand Organization has launched the annual national costume selection today. There were 7 designs selected to advance to this final decision and the winner is ‘Chang the Icon of Siam’ designed by Tee Phasux.

Additionally, elephants are pretty much like a symbol of Thailand. They represent power and strength over enemies. They’re sacred animals especially white elephants. Thais normally give away white elephants to their king as they have long believed that these animals reflect the power and perfection of the king.

Apart from the national costume selection, we think we have seen dramatic improvement on Sophida Kanchanarin, Miss Universe Thailand 2018. She has been well-refined as we can see from her total look today. It was smart and elegant and it helped make her become more confident.

We’re not really sure if the confidence is from her new look or from massive & intensive training but what we can really say is that she has improved quite a lot right from the start. She gave interview with high level of confidence that we haven’t seen before from her. This is a good sign of improvement from Sophida and we believe that she will do her best in tweaking her weaknesses and refining her strengths.

Advancing to the final 5 in Miss Universe competition isn’t something out of her reach. Trust me!!!

It’s not easy to continue the legacy of Miss Universe Thailand as there would be a lot of pressures coming from all directions from the fans to successful achievements that her predecessors have accomplished.

66th Miss Universe Updates Part 1

The competition has officially started with the contestants coming to join the pageant from around the world to register for the 66th Miss Universe! Here are some overview for you.

001

Thailand – A very standout for the very first day of the competition. She, in person, is as beautiful as in her photos. She was chosen by CHI to do the first official Instagram live for this edition of Miss Universe. Laos is her roommate.

006

Philippines – Her styling for the first day wasn’t what we expected to see. I mean she has very perfect figure but the outfits covered all her beautiful curved lines. One more thing, We’re bored with turtleneck top. Get rid of them Rachel!

002

Sri Lanka – We’re a bit disappointed with her as she hasn’t got that charisma to be the winner, honestly. But anyway, she’s very lovely and very natural and still one of those who would make the first cut to the final round.

005

Venezuela – She’s not that strong. I mean Misses Venezuela haven’t been as super strong as before. And I think they need professional stylist to look after them. I mean seriously from Makeup to the wardrobe.

003

Colombia – Yeah! She’s beautiful but not sure if she could make it to the finals. Let’s take a look at her performance during the competition and we’ll discuss about this again.

004

Indonesia – Keep an eye on her wardrobe as this year ASEAN girls are bringing with them lots of beautiful clothing.

Laos – A gorgeous young girl. She reminds us of Aniporn Chalermburanawong from Thailand in the 2015 edition.

Watch out for their photos circulating online on Friday, 3 November 2017 as Miss Thailand & Miss Indonesia will meet the press in their hometown before heading straight away to Las Vegas to compete in the Miss Universe 2017.

Miss Thailand, Maria Lynn Ehren Poonlertlarp, will showcase her national costume and her gown for the competition. Let’s keep an eye on her event as Miss Thailand’s wardrobe is something we should be afraid of.

Miss Indonesia, Bunga Jalitha, will meet with the press and show her readiness for the upcoming competition.

No comparison! It will be such a great fun to see these 2 girls meeting with the press on the same day as Thailand and Indonesia are very strong contenders to pass through the finals!

Laura Gonzalez, How far she can go in the upcoming Miss Universe 2017?!!

Undoubtedly, Colombia has been the most successful country at Miss Universe as Paulina Vega won the crown in 2014, Ariadna was placed 1st runner up in 2015 and Andrea Tovar was a 2nd runner up in 2016. Personally, we think the secret behind their huge success is the training and the ability to adapt to the change of circumstances which we think Venezuela is far behind as they too stick with their past formula of success!

This year, Laura Gonzalez, a 22 beauty queen, will compete at the Miss Universe competition in Las Vegas. Guys! We think she’s one of the sweethearts of the competition already. Her body is perfect. Her face is super sweet like a goddess. But hey! Being crowned Miss Universe is not that easy. It takes a lot of things involved to be qualified as the winner. We love to see this girl in the top 6 or even in the final but what she needs to get to the top is being natural! Having said that, we didn’t mean she’s a plastic or a fake candidate. But take a serious look at the past 2 winners in the IMG era, it surely guarantees that apart from being beautiful from head to toe or being an unbeatable runway queen isn’t enough.

It seems like Miss Universe needs someone who is natural and down-to-earth to be the spokesperson of their organization instead of a robot-like beauty queen. Gonzalez has to up her game and show them her real self and her genuinity to the judges to make sure that the crown will be hers!!

 

Miss Universe Laos to compete in the Miss Universe competition for the first time. . . Well begun is half done!

It’s the first time in the history of Laos to send its representative to compete in the Miss Universe pageant this year in Las Vegas. Suphaphone Somvichith, the 20-year-old beauty, was crowned Miss Universe Laos 2017. And it looks like Laos has done quite a good research in the Miss Universe pageant since they have selected somewhat a strong representative assuming it’s the first time for them. Suphaphone is a model who works in both Laos and Thailand. She has enough experience in the showbiz which is significantly useful for her in competing in Miss Universe.

Rumor has it that Suphaphone is now in Thailand to prepare herself for the upcoming competition. She has been trained a lot and it’s speculated that all her photo shoots will be done in Thailand.

Personally, we love to see Asian nations being placed in major beauty pageants so no wonder we want to see this beautiful lady do her best once the competition has started.

What we expect to see from Miss Universe Thailand. . . The Wardrobe!!!

Hi, Miss Fashion!!! It can be no one else but Miss Thailand. In Miss Universe 2015, Aniporn Chalermburanawong surprised pageant fans around the world sporting model-like outfits throughout the competition. In 2016 edition, Chalita Suansane made headlines globally with her 17 bags during airport check-in. Now we really expect kind of surprise from Maria Poonlertlarp as well! In this article, we will take a quick look at what she will bring with her. Yes, the wardrobe!!!

When it comes to fashion, MUT organization has never compromised since outfits can turn an ordinary girl to a standout. It seems like there’s a big collaboration in Thai fashion industry in preparing Maria’s wardrobe for Miss Universe. From top stylist, top local & international designers to the top makeup artist, Maria really has a good team to help support her all the way to the crown.

This year we can expect to see something more fun compared to 2016 edition as the pageant will be held in Las Vegas where it is colder than in the Philippines. Apart from flashy outfits, Maria will bring with her Thai silk garments from The Foundation for the Promotion of Supplementary Occupations and Related Technique of Her Majesty Queen Sirikit of Thailand. And don’t expect to see ordinary pieces from her team. I can guarantee you will be surprised. Yes! we call this the ‘WOW Factor’ of Miss Thailand.
