MANILA, Philippines – The Miss Universe 2012 National Costume Show went underway on December 14, 8 pm in Las Vegas (December 15, 12 nn in Manila).

Rappler live-blogged and streamed the event in our Life & Style section.

Hours before the National Costume Show, we posted a photo of Miss Universe 1973 Margie Moran-Floirendo in costume, after the Janine Mari Raymundo Tugonon Facebook page hinted that Janine’s national costume was inspired by Ms. Moran-Floirendo’s outfit in the photo.

True enough, Janine emerged in a singkil-inspired costume with a sablay. The glittery fabric moved perfectly with her walk.

There may have been more elaborate national costumes in the show but Miss Philippines’ costume was definitely one of the more elegant and memorable.

Watch Janine walk proudly in her national costume here:
