The 74 women of the 69th Miss Universe walked the stage confidently in swimsuits by Ema Savahl Couture for the swimwear segment of the pageant's preliminary competition in Hollywood, Florida on May 14 (May 15, Philippine time).
Rabiya Mateo, the Philippines' delegate to the pageant, was dazzling and sexy in her sexy swimwear, wearing nude lips, a pink cape, and silver hoop earrings. The 24-year-old Filipina beauty queen is definitely a standout in this segment of the prelims. In the Miss Universe Philippines pageant last year, Rabiya won the Best in Swimsuit special award.
Of course, the other girls of the 69th Miss Universe pageant were also breathtaking. It’s definitely going to be a tough competition for the show's finals night on May 16 (May 17, Philippine time).
