Continuing our winning streak in beauty pageants, Francesca Taruc took home the crown at the Miss Tourism World Intercontinental held this week in Nanjing, China.
Red seems to be our lucky color. Francesca wore a red gown embellished with the Philippine flag’s three stars and the sun. (You’ll recall that Catriona Gray won Miss Universe 2018 wearing her now iconic lava gown and “Three Stars and the Sun” ear cuff.) Designed by Benj Leguiab IV, Francesca's gown was previously worn by Alyssa Muhlach Alvarez, Philippine representative to the Reina Hispanoamericana 2018.
Hailing from Angeles, Pampanga, she is a print and commercial model with a degree in Mass Communication.
