Celeste’s striking aura and understated elegance have been making waves on social media because of her looks that were styled by Perry Tabora, who is also the mastermind behind beautiful numbers of other beauty queens like Pia Wurtzbach and Kylie Verzosa. Before focusing on the universe’s prestigious pageant, we should first see Celeste Cortesi’s five glamorous pre-pageant looks.  

Lady in red

Celeste Cortesi stuns the universe in her touchdown fit at Los Angeles International Airport. She wore a striking red leather ensemble that conveyed the strong message of a regal woman. The beauty queen kicked it up a notch with her long faux-fur coat and knee-high boots. 


From wearing a vibrant-colored look in the airport, Celeste brought no less than glitz and glamour as she donned a neutrally coordinated yet equally blinding outfit. The Miss Universe Philippines’ statuesque physique was highlighted by pairing her neutral bodycon top with a blazer and wide-leg trousers in a sparkling neutral hue.

Reign in sophistication

The force of Celeste Cortesi while wearing an all-black outfit is never unnoticed. The simple look showed off her poise perfectly as she was wrapped in a show-stopping crystalized coat by Chris Nick, paired with a tube mini dress and knee-high boots.

La vie en rose

Celeste Cortesi also leaned on the Barbiecore trend, wearing a custom feathered mini dress in hot pink. The Miss Universe candidate kept her accessories to a minimum to make the strapless creation effortlessly stand out. 

Iconic in black 

Black fashion never fails to communicate the message of power, triumph, and beauty. That’s why Celeste Cortesi always aces the fashion classic during her memorable stay in New Orleans. Even though the days are getting busier for the Filipina beauty queen, she never fails to deliver snatched looks overseas. Celeste wore a classic black dress with a plunging neckline, topped with another Chris Nick coat, and a pair of knee-high boots, exuding an edgy and powerful vibe outside the pageant stage.
