Celeste Cortesi dazzles as ‘Darna’ in Miss U national costume competition

After her impressive performance during the preliminary competition of the 71st Miss Universe on Thursday (Manila time), the Philippines’ very own Celeste Cortesi remains to be the crowd favorite during the national costume competition held on the same day in New Orleans, Louisiana.

The 25-year-old conquered the stage wearing the country’s iconic superheroine Darna designed by Oliver Tolentino, the same designer who created her sky blue evening gown for the preliminary competition.

The costume was complimented by a sun and stars headpiece with some metalwork accessories which was inspired by the national flag of the Philippines that was designed by Jerome Navarro

The winner for the best national costume will be announced during the 71st Miss Universe coronation night which will be held at the New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center, New Orleans, Louisiana.
