Miss World Philippines 2018 Katarina Rodriguez made it to the Top 32 of the 1st Fast Track competition of the annual Miss World Beauty Pageant.
World Fashion Designer Gala
Before the Top Model competition, Miss World delegates get to wear a gown made by a designer from their country in a fashion showcase.
Five (5) designs – not girls – were chosen as winners of said fashion gala. Scores in this segment does not count as part of the Top Model Fasttrack.
For this segment, Katarina wore a lilac and wine dress with beaded elements and an embellished belt bodice over a tiered velvet skirt by Rosanthal Tee.
The strategy here is for her to look like a young princess to appeal to the Chinese community.
The coronation look will be a stark contrast because then she will look like a queen in her very beautiful sequinned gown by Francis Libiran.
