Three days after Miss World Philippines 2018, people are still talking about the gown of Alyssa Muhlach Alvarez. Much like the ear cuff Catriona Gray wore during Bb. Pilipinas 2018, Alyssa’s gown earned praises for its patriotic theme.

It’s not noticeable at first but when Alyssa turns her back, the beautifully embroidered map of the Philippines can be seen prominently placed just below her right shoulder.

In an Instagram post, Alyssa credited designer Benjie Leguiab IV for the patriotic design though it was she who told Leguiab about the theme she wanted for her gown.

“I told him that I wanted my gown to show my love for the Philippines, and he was able to come up with this beautiful gown that did just that,” Alyssa wrote.

The result was spectacular, and proved to be good luck. Allyssa Muhlach Valdez, the daughter of Almira Muhlach and former basketball star Bong Alvarez, was named Reina Hispanoamericana Filipinas 2018 during the Miss World Philippines 2018 finals.
