Did you know that at this date, exactly 40 years ago, Margarita “Margie” Moran won the Philippines its second Miss Universe crown? The pageant was held in Athens, Greece. She also won that edition’s Miss Photogenic.
Later when asked about the difference between a Filipina and a Miss Universe, Margarita Moran said that "Being Miss Universe is like having a birthstone, you may lose it. Being a Filipina is like having a birthmark, it's forever."
