MANILA, Philippines – We are counting down the hours to the 2013 Miss Universe coronation night on November 9, 8 pm, in Crocus City Hall, Moscow, Russia (November 10, 2 am, Philippine time).
Rappler contributor Jory Rivera sent us these coronation night rehearsal photos, taken last November 6.
The candidates were dressed casually, comfortable enough for them to dance in. Jory spoke with Miss Philippines Ariella Arida who expressed excitement over the approaching coronation night. Ara also expressed sadness since the coronation night also meant the end of their journey together as the 2013 batch, and she had grown close to some of the candidates.
Based on the pre-coronation night events this past week — National Costume, Preliminary Competition (swimwear, evening gown) — who do you think will bring home the crown?
