With just a few days away from the Miss Universe 2017 pageant in Las Vegas, we’re pretty sure the energy is as intense and palpable as ever. So we can only imagine what Rachel Peters felt when photos of her evening gown designed by Val Taguba were leaked online.
Tita Lavinia: Will we see this golden caped beauty at the MU finals? Stay tuned 😝 Eme eme lang mungtanga kase sana tumalab pa tong scheme na to. Kung May seatmates kayo di gets tong post na to paki tulungan nlang. Imbyerns mag explain 😡 Update: Mukang may bisa to. Anuvaaaaaa. Admin friends lam nyo na. Pa pick up sticks na to ng mga nasa kabilang ibayo. Need natin mag appear disappear one half one fourth yung truelaloo na pic. Kaya patungan nyo nlang nito. Again ha 👏👏👏 give na give kayo AWARD! 😂 📷 @valtaguba -Gold- Val Taguba Bridal Couture #valtagubabride #moulage #hautecouture @michaelcinco5 @ezracouture @bandoix @ilang_ilang_co #Rachel4MU #RachelPeters #PETERSfan #missuniverse #missuniverse2017
Rachel expressed her disappointment via Instagram Stories and even wondered what the intention was behind the leak. In the end, she assured all of us that it’s not about the dress that she will be wearing, but what’s important is that she’s kind and true to herself.
The evening gowns are usually kept a secret until the reveal onstage for that surprise element and in hindsight prevents others from copying or imitating the final look. But as Rachel mentioned, it doesn’t matter now. She’s going to represent the Philippines with the best of her abilities and we’re all cheering her on.
The questions is, will she be wearing the same gown that was leaked or will she change last minute? The Miss Universe 2017 pageant night will be held on Nov. 26.[Inquirer and Bandera]
