Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach served the looks in a new set of photos shot by fashion photographer BJ Pascual.

In one series of photos, Pia sported a sleek blonde ‘do as she posed with a variety of live snakes – calling to mind the mythical snake-haired creature Medusa, or even Britney Spears’ iconic performance of “Slave 4 U” with a yellow python.

In another series of photos, Pia channeled iconic pin-up model Bettie Page as she wore a blunt fringe and a latex corset while doing classic pin-up poses.

Vince Uy was creative director of the shoot. Styling was by Pam Quinones, make-up by Mickey See, and hair by Renz Pangilinan.

The photos were released to mark the anniversary of BJ’s YouTube channel and a celebration of him reaching 20 million streams. Pia will also be featured in his channel’s anniversary episode premiering on Sunday, August 8. – Rappler.com
