If you have always dreamed of seeing Pia Wurtzbach in person, now is your chance! The former Miss Universe will be at the Dubai Mall on March 14, from 6pm to 8pm. She will be there for a “meet and greet” session as a special guest of The Watch House.
The Filipina beauty won everybody’s hearts back in 2015, when she was crowned Miss Universe. The host, Steve Harvey, had mistakenly announced Miss Colombia as the winner. Moments later, he publicly apologized, then announced Miss Philippines, Pia Wurtzbach, as the new Miss Universe!
Former Miss Universe Coming to Dubai Mall
“I will be visiting Dubai next week,” Pia announced on her Instagram account. “See you in the Dubai Mall – The Watch House on March 14 from 6pm till 8pm for a meet-and-greet with the Filipino community! Beyond excited! See you there!”
Everyone is excited to meet the beauty queen — now a popular commercial model and actress in the Philippines. After all, who can forget that moment when she was crowned as the most beautiful woman in the universe:
I know it took me a long time to post this. I needed some time to get settled in cos everything was happening so fast. Now everything is sinking in and I’m almost done replying and thanking everyone as much as I can. Okay. Here goes. First of all.. Thank you, Lord! The countless times I begged you in tears to please grant me my one big wish! I prayed in every church I went into, in whichever part of the world I was. Wished on every wishing well I passed by and on every falling star I caught in the sky. When everything seemed unreachable or impossible, You found a way. I trained well & despite all the challenges, everything fell into place and I finally got the crown the whole country has been waiting for for 42 years. It is true. Focus on the ordinary and God will take care of the extraordinary. Second, thank you to the amazing team behind me. Aces and Queens. I am grateful for all the training I did with you. You were my family away from family. I found my confidence when you found my potential. To my family in London, Mama, Papa, Sarah, Charlie & baby Lara. Thank you for being so supportive in all my decisions. You guys are really the one I turn to when things get rough. And I’m so grateful that even when you’re far away, I never feel alone. And last but definitely not the least, to YOU. Thank you for cheering and rooting for me. Whether you were a die hard supporter at the Axis Theater in Las Vegas or just a silent supporter watching me from TV, thank you. Especially to those who voted for me during the Global Fan Vote. You were all instrumental to my victory. Mga kababayan, when I was walking on stage in that blue gown, wearing the Philippine sash in front of billions of viewers on TV and online, I’ve never been more proud to be a Filipina. I’ll never forget it. It was a proud yet humbling experience. And now as I continue on with my journey as Miss Universe, I hope I inspired you all. Not just my fellow countrymen but all of you. Keep your faith, fight for what you believe in and hold on to your dreams! They do come true! I know I still have much to learn and a huge responsibility ahead of me.. So thank you 2015 and bring it on, 2016!😄❤🙏👑HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Fan of Dubai-based Designer
Interestingly, Pia also happens to be a fan of Michael Cinco, a Filipino designer based in Dubai. He is a well-known designer, whose gorgeous creations are in-demand among celebrities in the Philippines, the Middle East, and even in Hollywood!
At last year’s Miss Universe Pageant, Pia wore a stunning gown created by Cinco during her “final walk.” Fans from all over the world absolutely loved it!
