LTE's 63rd Miss Universe TOP 15

Again, this is not a prediction. It's our annual LTE Miss Universe post. It's been a year na pala. bumabalik lang sa blog kung MIss Universe Season na. Hhahaha! OK Go na! Our choice for Miss Universe: From Top 15 to Winner:

TOP 15

Tatlong words lang: Modern, Kaka-iba, Bago.  The latter-day Manpreet Brar. Charot!

She's our Best In Gown pero... yun lang ata. Her body is for modeling and doesn't spell 'Pageant' at all... but we really love Russia for her fashion sense. Bengga!

There is something we like about Israel that we cannot explain. Ang lakas ng X-Factor ng babaeng hudyo na itits! Kaya pasok sya! Don't be surprised if her name is called tomorrow night mga badush. Promise.

We love Venezuela's angelic face, genuine smile, and bubbly personality but there's one "BIG' problem.... kaya Top 15 na lang ang lola mo.

11. USA
Confident si bruha! As in kitang kita ang confidence at di pilit ha. We heard her talk naman and she seems sweet at may sense talaga. Kaya lang parang di namin feel ang beauty nya. Parang kulang.

TOP 10

O, eto na. We know that your waiting kung pasok nga si MJ sa LTE Top 15. Oh ayan, pasok nga pero sorry mga bakla, medyo ambivalent ang feeling namin sa kanya. Her EG was a disaster for us. as in sayang, shes our sentimental fave pa naman. She has the best catwalk kaya win sya sa SS presentation nya. The thing is, she sometimes look matured and short and baduy. We also noticed that she over-does things eg. Smile, to the point na parang fake na. Pero in fairy ness to her, she looks like a goddess naman if properly styled. We wish we can put her up more in our list pero sorry, hanggang Top 10 lang siguro sya (unless papalitan nya ang gown nya and styling (hair) sa Finals). Good luck MJ! Pls prove us wrong.

Taray! Parang OK na sana lahat eh (Bengga ang Gown and SS presentation) pero medyo walang charisma.... or parang may hinahanap lang kami na wala sya. Basta. 

A Breath of fresh air. Youthful and fresh. Clean-looking yet sultry. Maamo ang mukha ni Indonesia. Like na like namin. Winner din ang EG nya in fer. She deserves to be in the Top 10, Please lang!

We didn't notice how she walk or what she was wearing in the pre-lim show because we were all focused on her beautiful face. Her universal appeal is evident and she was one of those who gave us a cute and witty interview. (Pero we have this funny feeling na sya ang tatanghaling winner ng Ruth Ocumarez Award this year). Say nyo?

She surprised us at the pre-lims. Both EG and SS kaloka sya. Demure pero strong ala Ximena ang drama! Eksenadora, kaya pasok sa tough 10! (Chaka lang ang placement ng mole sa face nya. Tse!)


4th Runner Up: INDIA
Kaloka tong si India. Miss Universe na Miss Universe na sana ang fez eh pero chaka ng styling. 
Her cheap-looking wardrobe is pulling her down. 4th Runner-Up for the fez alone. That is how beautiful she is to us. (Wag lang mag smile palagi. Queen na Queen na!)

3rd Runner-Up: ARGENTINA
Argentina is the most relatable amongst them all. She's the girl-next-door type na mamahalin mo. Etchos! Pero yeah, totoo, we love her for being simple pero noticeable. Tahimik lang pero may ibubuga pala. She doesnt exalt herself too much to be noticed, pero ayan na-notice! Yan dapat!

2nd Runner-up: JAMAICA
Sophistication. May command si bakla sa stage. May authority mag walk and pose. Di mo sya ma miss. Kitang kita mo talaga sya with her short hair. And hello, she's a good speaker too. Humanda kayo bukas!

Colombia was a showstopper at the pre-lims. LTE's Best in Swimsuit. Perfect 10 if we were to judge.  Super gandara ang katawan. Her only problem is medyo di sya sweet. Parang may pagka-maldita sa pics kung minsan. At parang di tunay ang smile. Ewan, parang nakikita namin si Zuleyka at Cynthia Olavarria sa kanya. Wit type! She has the face and the body and the moves, lahat na sa kanya but... does she have the heart and the right attitude?

LTE's Miss Universe 2014: SPAIN
Walang ka effort effort ang baklang eto. Beautiful face and body. Most importantly, abot penthouse ang charisma. She moves and smile like she's wearing the crown na. Kaya ibigay na sa kenya! Ikaw na ang reyna! Viva España!


Top 20: Dominican Republic, Lithuania, South Africa, Costa Rica & Netherlands
Disappointments: Austria, Gabon,  & Australia

Our Predictions: 
Philippines and Brazil will be in the Top 5 again
Two remaining girls will be Colombia and India
Argentina is Best in National Costume
Italy and South Africa in the Top 15
No Serbia and Russia in the Top 15

Babu na mga bakla! Sana di tayo sawi bukas. Hoping the best for our MJ. Until next year!

LTE's Miss Universe 2013 Top 15

Here's our annual LTE's Miss Universe Choice. After watching the pre-lims, we came up with our Top 15. This is not a prediction, but our own personal picks. Here they are.....

TOP 15

TOP 10


And LTE's Miss Universe 2013 is..........

Congratulations, Philippines! We hope we're right come Saturday. Good luck! 

Surprises: Bolivia, Nigeria, Vietnam
Disappointments: France, USA, Venezuela
Dark Horses: Argentina, Curacao, Netherlands

------ O ------

LTE Remarks:

1. Philippines is a chameleon. Her candids dont give her justice. Her wardrobe simply shows she's from the third world. But with the right styling and make up, she transforms into a siren with different looks. And wait til she moves....

2. France is a disappointment for us, big time! She was LTE's early favorite but her preliminary presentation was unexciting at all.

3. Spain should have won LTE's Miss Universe 2013. Blame it on the dull gown. 

4. Speaking of dull gowns,  another letdown coming from USA.

5. Nigeria! You surprised us the most! The styling, the confidence, the stage-presence. We will not be bowled over if your name will be called come saturday.

6. Only if Venezuela doesnt look old.

7. We are not sure about Curacao, but we have the feeling.....

8. Philippines and Puerto Rico's yellow rivalry. Monic has a better gown, but Ara just made hers more beautiful with her spunk.

9. Poland was our early favorite to win. We were hoping she'll pull it off at the prelims, but what she showed us was a mediocre performance, #12 is just right. 

10. LTE dont get it right all the time. Here's LTE's Miss Universe picks through the years:

2007: GUATEMALA (Unplaced)
2008: BELGIUM (Unplaced)
2009: GREAT BRITAIN (Unplaced)
2010: IRELAND (Top 10)
2011: GREECE (Unplaced)
2012: FRANCE (Top 10)

So, Philippines.... the best of luck to you! Mabuhay!

LTE's PFW S/S 2014 Top Picks

 Here's our favorite list from the recently concluded Philippine Fashion Week S/S 2014:

Overall, PFW was quite a yawn this season. Maybe Philippine fashion is all about playing safe. Or we could be wrong for we were not there personally. Thanks to the PFW Website for the photos! And don't worry, LTE is still a big fan of Philippine Fashion! Labyu!

Miss Universe 2013 Best and Worst in Gown

Imagine those pictures of Miss Universe 2013 ladies in their gowns placed on a red carpet at a gala event such as the Oscars, .......who stole the show... as the best... and worst?

LTE rounds up the Best......

 And the lady who wowed us the most  is.........

But teka... who were the losers on the red carpet?

 And the worst goes to...... 

We thought it's all cultural when a lady is choosing a gown for herself, but then again, the contestant from a Muslim country was who we admired the most. Tse ninyong lahat!
