Gowns & Tiaras: Miss Earth 2015 Finals, Vienna Austria
December is quickly becoming "International Beauty Pageant Month"--Last Friday was the Finals of Miss Supranational 2015 with over 80 contestants competing for the crown and Miss Paraguay eventually winning. December 19th is the date of the Miss World 2015 Finals occurring in Sanya People's Republic of China, and on the next night, December 20th, the Miss Universe Pageant will take place in Las Vegas. And on top of it all, in this blog, I will be talking about the Miss Earth 2015 Finals which happened this past Saturday in Vienna Austria...

The Miss Earth Beauty Pageant--organized by Carousel Productions and based in Manila Philippines--is considered part of the top "Grand Slam" International Beauty Pageants (the Most Important ones in the eyes of fans, pageant followers, TV and web viewership, publicity, how many contestants compete, etc.) and stands out as not just about beauty, but it also, according to Wikipedia "promotes environmental awareness". The reigning titleholder uses her year promoting specific projects that deal with the environment and earth-related issues...as well as looks FAB-u-LOUS and beautiful!
This year's winner was...
Two for Two: Miss Earth Philippines 2015 Angelia Ong is crowned Miss Earth 2015 by the previous titleholder, also from the Philippines, Jamie Herrell. This was the first time in the 15-year history of the pageant that the same country won back-to-back.
Angelia is 25 years old, stands 1. 72 m (5' 7 1/2") tall and hails from Iloilo City, Philippines. She is Filipina-Chinese.
