Former Miss Universe Pia Wurtzbach set for Dubai visit

DUBAI: Miss Universe 2015, Pia Wurtzbach, is gearing up to visit Dubai on March 14, she announced on her Instagram page recently.
The beauty queen, who is the third Filipino to win the Miss Universe crown, said she would be visiting The Dubai Mall and meet with fans.
“See you for a meet-and-greet with the Filipino community. Beyond excited,” the 28-year-old who last visited the city in 2016 said on her Instagram page.
“I will be visiting Dubai next week! See you in The Dubai Mall, The Watch House, on March 14 from 6pm till 8pm,” she added.
Wurtzbach became an Internet sensation back in 2015 when she was part of the snafu by contest host Steve Harvey who wrongly announced Miss Colombia as the winner of the Miss Universe crown, before he backtracked and triggered a series of hilarious reactions online.
She is known for her humanitarian work and has, in the past, visited wounded soldiers in the Philippines. She is also a UNAIDS goodwill ambassador for Asia and the Pacific.
Wurtzbach is also starring in a Filipino movie alongside actor Gerald Anderson.
The romantic comedy, titled “My Perfect You,” will be helmed by director Cathy Garcia-Molina.
“This is another dream come true for me,” Wurtzbach posted on Instagram about the movie, which is set to be released in the country on March 14.


Gigi Hadid celebrates birthday with a funny tweet

Gigi Hadid celebrates birthday with a funny tweet

DUBAI: US-Palestinian model Gigi Hadid celebrated her 23rd birthday yesterday, a few days after she marked the birthday of a close friend in New York.
Hadid spent time in the Big Apple and stepped out to celebrate the 35th birthday of American reality TV star Tan France at his home in the city earlier this week.
A day before her birthday on April 23, Hadid took to Instagram to ask her fans to mark Earth Day, which lands on April 22.

She posted a photo of a forest with a caption that read: “I’m still just a (little) Taurus girl who finds so much happiness, contentment and inspiration when I take a minute in nature and look around.

“May we celebrate Mother Earth every day for all she gives and teaches us!”

In honor of her impending birthday, the fashion star took to Twitter on Sunday night to share a humorous message with her nine million followers.

“As we close in on midnight, I would like to share that my final meal as a 22-year-old will officially be Cocoa Krispies. Thank you for your attention.”


She has every reason to celebrate this year, as the star has been riding a wave of success that would make even the most experienced models nod their heads in approval.

A few days before her birthday, she unveiled her Vogue Japan cover — the latest in a clutch of coveted magazine covers that the young beauty has managed to nab.

“So happy and excited to share my @voguejapan June cover story!” she captioned one of the snaps on Instagram.

The cover image features Hadid wearing a high-collared leather jacket and sporting slicked-back hair, a bold red lip and minimal additional make-up.

For the inside pages, the model posed wearing various masculine, edgy outfits in a series of black-and-white shots. In one particular photo that oozed cool factor, Hadid was snapped wearing a leather jacket-and-trousers combination with a broad tie that would not look out of place in a 1980’s film about the perils of Wall Street — or on Donald Trump circa 2018.

Besides her fashion credentials, the model, who recently spit from singer Zayn Malik, is fast becoming known for her social media clap backs.

She made international headlines in February by discussing her weight loss and said it was the result of learning to manage her Hashimoto’s Disease, not because of an eating disorder or drug use.

The model sent out a series of tweets stating that she would no longer respond to comments on her appearance.

“I will not further explain the way my body looks, just as anyone with a body type that doesn’t suit (your) ‘beauty’ expectation shouldn’t have to. Not to judge others, but drugs are not my thing. Stop putting me in that box just because you don’t understand the way my body has matured,” she said on Twitter.
