Quirino asked the Miss World supporters to come in blue, the color of Miss World crown, where she will be welcomed with blue confetti raining down the street as she goes by. "The (Miss World) crown is patterned after the medieval crown (of England). It has a long history and is most coveted," she said.
When asked if she feel pressured to produce another title for next year's Miss World, Quirino says she's not pressured at all.
"I don't have anything to prove anymore. But it doesn't mean we won't send our best candidates next year. There are countries that won the Miss World for two consecutive years. And we hope to continue the winning streak."
"Megan won because of her garce and natural beauty," she continued. "She has no airs. She remained humble throughout the pageant even if she was leading in global surveys."
The 23-year-old beauty queen bested 128 candidates from all over the world and became the first Filipina to ever sit in the Miss World throne. The pageant was broadcast to more than 180 countries where she made all Filipinos proud with her wit, beauty and elegance.
