Mittenaere, meanwhile, showed herself with her luggage, apparently on her way to the airport, as seen on her Instagram Stories yesterday, April 28. She then disclosed that she arrived in Manila a few hours later on the same day.
“Well arrived in Manila. Relaxing time before the craziness of tomorrow,” she said.
During her flight, the Miss Universe 2016 winner had an online question and answer with fans via a series of Instagram Stories.
Mittenaere disclosed that she will be wearing a Michael Cinco gown for the Miss Universe Philippines pageant. She added that travel time from Paris to the Philippines lasts for 16 hours, though she decided to do a stopover at Dubai for a shorter flight.

The finals will be held tomorrow, April 30, at the Mall of Asia Arena. Reigning Miss Universe Harnaaz Sandhu will also be coming to the pageant as a special guest and judge. /ra
