NEW YORK, New York (The Adobo Chronicles, Washington Bureau) – It was supposed to be an artistic, uneventful photo shoot for Miss Universe Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach, but things didn’t turn out so well.
On a cold night in the heart of Times Square, Wurtzbach posed for a photographer of a well known New York fashion magazine, donning a stunning black coctail dress and a faux fur coat draped over it. She looked stunning.
Alas, two things went wrong:
The photo shoot caused a traffic snarl in all of Manhattan which became a virtual parking lot. Every New Yorker wanted a glimpse of the Filipina beauty.
Then, when the photographer downloaded the digital photos for submission to the magazine’s editors, he realized that he had forgotten to either remove or hide the coat’s price tag and laundry instructions (see photo).
The Adobo Chronicles learned that the coat was borrowed from Macy’s Department Store in New York for use in the photo shoot.
Now, the magazine’s editors had asked that the whole photo session be done all over again. So, brace up for another traffic snarl, dear New Yorkers!
MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles) – Leave it to the Filipinos to correct a major error, like Steve Harvey’s announcement of the wrong winner in last month’s Miss Universe beauty pageant in Las Vegas.
Miss Colombia wore the crown for several minutes before Harvey came back on stage to admit he mistakenly announced the South American beauty as the new Miss Universe. But after everything was corrected, the television coverage of the live event had already ended.
So to give back Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach that lost moment at the pageant, the Philippines recreated the traditional Miss Universe Walk.
