Amid reports of score leakages, Miss Philippines Ariella Arida continues to shine in the Miss Universe 2013 pageant by bagging the Ice Princess title.
The winner was based on a glam photo shoot among the 86 candidates. In selecting Ariella as the Ice Princess, photographer Fadil Berisha said, quoted by Pep.ph, "In this glam shot, Arida transformed from her exotic sultry look into a high class fashion model."

Berisha added, "From her frizz mane to her pout and down to her skin tone, Ara Arida is a force to be reckoned with as she can transform from different looks as long as she wishes."
Here's the winning photos of Arida in the glam shot.
With the new title, the photographer said Ariella is a major favourite to win the Miss Universe crown, especially if she continues to impress the judges.
The theme for the photo shoot was YAMAMAY FOR MISS UNIVERSE swimwear and faux fur.
Yamamay is an Italian swimwear and lingerie manufacturer and has entered into an exclusive deal with the Miss Universe Organisation to design, produce and distribute the Miss Universe swimwear collection.
Ariella has also became a viral video queen with her Truth and Dare video in the beauty pageant, seen below, logging almost 150,000 hits.
Her question was "What do you miss most about being a kid?" and her response was "Being fearless, young, and carefree."
In the dare task, she was ordered to act like a chicken, which she promptly did, clucking "Tik-tilaok! Tik-tilaok!"
