Last Sunday, Laura Lehmann was crowned as Miss World Philippines 2017. The 24-year-old beauty will represent the country in the Miss World 2017 pageant in China.
If Lehman’s pretty face looks familiar, it is probably because you’ve seen her as a former UAAP courtside reporter and as a TV host. This isn’t her first time to compete in a pageant too, as she was a runner up in Binibining Pilipinas in 2014.
Last night’s Gala Night gown by @markbumgarner. 💛 Proceeds of the night went to the Jose Reyes Memorial Medical Center & that was the best part about it. 🙂 🙏 Thank you so much to everyone who came out last night to support this Beauty With A Purpose project. We met the kids at the hospital and being with them reminded us why we joined this pageant. 🙂 The greatest beauty is truly found in giving. #MWP2017 #LauraForTheWorld
“Maraming maraming maraming salamat po. I heard all your cheers here in the arena. It gave me power and the energy to perform. Maraming, maraming salamat po. I will make you proud,” she says prior to winning the title.
As you can see, as usual I was not ready for the photo but…. 😅🙈 Surreal. 🙂 ❤️ That’s the only word I can use to describe what I’m feeling right now. 🙂 This is a dream to me & I feel like it’s going to end any moment. 🙂 I woke up this morning just like YOU – with my oversized pajamas, ripped blankets and two dogs beside me not believing someone as normal as me had a crown on her head. 🙈 But when I took a moment to reflect, I realized instead that’s the best thing about Miss World Philippines. 🙂 A Miss World queen is just a girl, like me, like YOU, with a passion, a purpose, and a dream. She is someone who loves her country and someone who wants to help make the world a little lighter, a little brighter, in whatever way she can. I know that there is a lot of hate and sadness in the world today but I have always believed that people are good by nature. They are deserving of all the smiles and all the happiness in the world. 🙂 I joined this pageant because I truly believe in everything in stands for. @MissWorld reminds us all that the greatest beauty is that in giving, and I am so proud to be part of it. Maraming, maraming salamat po. Hindi ko po makilimutan ang gabi na to. Para sa bayan. 🙂 🇵🇭❤️
Aside from winning the crown of Miss World Philippines 2017, Lehmann was also named Miss Cosmo Skin, Miss BYS Philippines, and the Multimedia Fast Track winner.
