Miss World 2016: The Secret of Winning Evening Gown!
The 66th edition of the Miss World pageant took place on 18th December 2016 at MGM National Harbor in Oxon Hill, Maryland, United States, Washington, D.C. During the conclusion of the pageant, Miss World 2015, Mireia Lalaguna Royo of Spain passed on her crown to Stephanie Del Valle from Puerto Rico.
Behind the winning mantra of crown, there is always an evening gown supporting the queen from within. So let’s delve into the secret behind the winning evening gown of Stephanie Del Valle, which you must know.
The magnificent evening gown of the newly crowned Miss World was designed by the ace fashion designer Carlos Alberto. The stunning evening gown was a reminiscence of the former Miss World queens who reigned supreme when they competed in pink evening gowns. Be it Megan Young, Rolene Strauss or Ivian Sarcos, everyone dazzled when they donned the pink evening gown on the coronation gala. Coincidentally, the newly crowned Miss World was also dressed in pink!
This is not the first time when Carlos Alberto’s creation has won an international crown. Prior to Stephanie Del Valle’s winning evening gown at Miss World, Carlos Alberto came into fame when he designed the winning evening gown of Zuleyka Rivera, who won the Miss Universe crown back in 2006.
After winning the Miss World crown, Stephanie Del Valle confessed in an interview that she always wanted to represent her country in the most philanthropic pageant of the world, which was of course, the Miss World pageant. When Stephanie Del Valle won the Miss Mundo Puerto Rico 2016 crown, she soon got in touch with Carlos Alberto, reflecting that she wants a very wide ball gown for the finale night of Miss World 2016.
The winning evening gown of Stephanie Del Valle which is light pink in colour is made in the fabric of silk with ruffles. The evening gown contains 24 thousand swarovsky stones and has bodice with transparency at the sides. Carlos Alberto even exclaimed, “God gave me the best girl to represent my dream design.”
