MANILA, Philippines (UPDATED) – Winwyn Marquez showed another side of Filipino culture, as she presented her national costume at the Reina Hispanoamericana 2017 competition in Bolivia on Thursday evening, October 26.

Wyn wore a Pintados costume made by designer Edwin Uy. On Facebook, Edwin explained the inspiration behind the outfit: “The Pintados Warrior Queen from Cebu. When the Spaniards came here in the Philippines, the very first people they saw were the tattooed people from Cebu, which they called the Pintados,” he wrote.
