Miss Universe Philippines 2020 Rabiya Mateo looked elegant and classy as she wore a gown inspired by the Philippine flag for a new glam shot.
“Lalaban para sa Pilipinas,” beauty camp Aces and Queens stated as it showed a photo of Mateo donning the Filipiniana on its Instagram page today, April 26. The picture was taken by Los Angeles-based photographer Filbert Kung.
The gown was in red and blue with white accents and a glittering sheer skirt. The beauty camp also said that it was a “creation that reflects the Philippine flag.”

“How sweet the morning air is! Sunrise gown in red, white and blue. Beautiful [Rabiya Mateo] in [a Kirsten Regalado] gown,” Regalado said in an Instagram post last week, April 18.
