She wowed by the crowd to make friends with as many Chinese when she competes in the Miss World pageant in China in August. But the 23-year-old Pakistani-Filipino beauty, Queenierich Rehman, crowded 2012 Miss World Philippines in a glittering beauty contest at the historic landmark Manila Hotel on Sunday last night.
It was the time for the beauty to compete with the fashioners as she earned the night to represent the Philippines in 62nd Miss World beauty pageant to be held in Ordos, Inner Mongolia, China on August 18, 2012. The Miss World contest is said to be the longest running beauty contest.
In last year this award is announced for Gwendolyn Ruais, half French. But this year it was for Queenierich Rehman, who joined the 2011 Bb. Filipinas beauty pageant won by Miss Universe third runner-up Shamcey Supsup. In the same year, Rehman also made the top 15 semi-finalists and won the Best In Swimsuit award, the same special award that she won the in this year’s Miss World Philippines contest.
It is a second time in history that a former Binibining Philippine candidate awarded with the Miss World. Rehman honoured with a car and P1 million cash as prize from this year’s sponsors. She stood 5’7” and measures 33-25-34.
Despite winning from this year’s Miss World Philippines she also awarded seven other awards as follows: Miss Pantene, Miss AMA Beauty and Brains, Miss Photogenic, Miss Talent, Miss Philippines Prudential, and Miss World Traveler.
She impressed the whole judge’s panel in the Q&A portion in which the top candidates answers and questions form Tweets. The question she picked up, “As an ambassador of the Philippines, what are the best features of your country that you can project to the world?”
Rehman replied, ““I believe that wherever you will go here in the Philippines, it’s not the islands that make us special but of course the Filipinos who have warm hospitality, who are having smiles on their faces, and of course who will treat all foreigners the love and respect, and hospitality that they can give to them. I believe that the Philippines is a country that we can be proud of.”
Rehman started her learning in high school at Southville International School. She was a varsity player in her school and college life, and even she was announced Rookie of the year in her college.
