The Philippines’ Alison Black finished in the Top 24. The former professional ballerina now owns her own ballet school after graduating cum laude at the University of the Philippines Diliman.

She was also proclaimed Miss Supra Talent in an awarding conducted after the coronation show.

Black is the second woman to be sent by the Miss World Philippines organization after it secured the license from the Miss Supranational pageant, which was previously held by the Binibining Pilipinas Charities Inc.

Mutya Johanna Datul, the first and so far only Filipino woman to win the Miss Supranational crown, was sent by Bb. Pilipinas to the global tilt’s fifth edition in 2013.


Since last year, the Miss Supranational pageant has adopted the theme “Aspirational, Inspirational” in its quest to seek women who can inspire people to aspire for greatness.

On July 16 (July 17 in Manila), the partner pageant Mister Supranational will stage its sixth edition in the same venue.
