First, Philippines sent their representative to Miss Universe in the person of Miriam Quiambao to Venezuela in 1999 to have her be trained by the famous Osmel Souza who have earned the reputation for having a Midas hand by turning ordinary Venezuelan ladies into doll-like uber gorgeous candidates; and, she ended 1st runner up.
Second, Dominican Republic, in 2003, sent Amelia Vega for training also in Venezuela and she ended up winning as Miss Universe 2003.
Now, it is Ecuador’s turn to send Constanza Baez who will be competing in Moscow, Russia comes November for the Miss Universe 2013 title. Will she have the same fate as experienced by the beauty queens from the Philippines and Dominican Republic?
After sending a quality candidate last year who was touted by pageant pundits and netizen as a front-runner but failed to advance, Ecuador is stepping up its game plan to start building its reputation as one of the powerhouses of beauties in South America.
Will Constanza Baez be able to achieve what Carolina Aguirre failed to do last year?
You decide whether she has transformed worthy for a spot in the finals of Miss Universe 2013. Recent pictures of Constanza’s transformation are doing the rounds on beauty pageant websites and blogs around the world-wide-web. Below are pictures of her right after her crowning as the national winner and during her hair and make-up sessions done by the Venezuelans for comparison.
But let me just remind everyone that not everybody who were sent for training in Venezuela were able to shine in their respective pageants. The beautiful Lalaine Edson of the Philippines knows this better when she didn’t place at Miss World 1999 despite having an week-long training by Osmel himself.
Let just cross our fingers that this effort by the Ecuadorian beauty queen will pays off.
