MANILA, Philippines — Nine days after her rumored boyfriend, Von Pessumal, won gold at the Southeast Asian Games, former Ateneo courtside reporter Laura Victoria Lehmann was crowned Miss World Philippines on Sunday night, September 3, at the Mall of Asia Arena.

Lehmann succeeds Miss World 2016 Top 5 finalist and Miss World Philippines 2016 Catriona Gray as the country’s new representative to the Miss World 2017 pageant to be held in China late this year.

Lehmann also received special awards such as Miss BYS Philippines and Miss Cosmo Skin.

“Aside from being sporty, Laura's life revolves around traveling. Having found her fondness for the islands of the Philippines — specifically her favorite, Batanes — she's currently hosting for a travel show in Asia. This eventually translated to advocating for PREP (Promoting Rural Education in the Philippines), in which she spends a day with elementary kids in different parts of the country to prepare lessons and build libraries for them,” Miss World Philippines, in its Facebook page, says of Laura, who was a courtside reporter for two years.

During the question and answer portion, Laura was asked what she would say to convince pageant non-believers. Her answer was "To anyone who don’t believe in pageants, I would ask them to take a look at the girls tonight because we have lawyers, architects, women of substance who are here not only because of what they look like but because of what’s in their hearts, what’s in their mind, and because what they’ve brought forth beauty with a purpose. they’re helping represent the Philippines and become the best version of the Filipina and for me that’s something only to celebrate."

 

 

 

The Miss World Philippines 2017 coronation night was hosted by Iya Villania, Carla Abellana, KC Montero and Miss World 2013 Megan Young. The judges included TV host Willie Revillame, actor Diether Ocampo, Miss World 1993 2nd Princess Ruffa Gutierrez, broadcaster Vicki Morales, Miss World 2016 Stephanie del Valle, Mr. Chinatown Philippines 2014 1st Runner-Up David Licauco, international model Paolo Roldan, film producer Roselle Monteverde and blogger and former “Pinoy Big Brother” housemate Ann Li.
