The event is billed as ‘Grit & Glam’, a fashion show brought to us by Front Row. Aside from the Miss Universe queens, The World’s Strongest Man participants will also grace the event.

“A royal reunion at Cove Manila! Join reigning Miss Universe Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters, Miss Universe 2016 Iris Mittenaere, and our very own Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach Official for a fashion show with The World’s Strongest Man this coming Tuesday, May 8. Don’t miss out on this rare gathering!” said the announcement.

But, there are rumors that this is more than just a fashion show. Reportedly, the Miss Universe Organization (MUO) and the Department of Tourism (DOT) will use the event to formally announce that Miss Universe 2018 will be hosted by the Philippines later this year! And front Row is one of the major sponsors.

Still waiting for news if MUO president Paula Shugart will attend. If Shugart arrives in Manila specially for such an event, then we know it is more than a ‘fashion show’!

UPDATE: Paula Shugart is already in town. According to ABS CBN, Shugart is in Manila and attended a dinner with Chavit Singson on Sunday.
