NANG madapa si Stella Marquez Araneta habang lumalakad papuntang parking lot matapos lumabas ng venue na pinagdausan ng Miss Universe pageant ay maraming Pinoy ang natuwa.
Marami kasi ang inis na inis, asar na asar at buwisit na buwisit kay Aling Stella. Ang tingin ng marami ay nakarma si madam.
Ang kanyang statement na Pinoy designers ”were no good” para lang i-justify ang pagkuha niya sa Colombian fashion designer Alfredo Barraza ay umani ng batikos.
Bakit, hindi ba niya kilala ang mga top Pinoy designer na gumawa ng matinding impact sa world fashion like Monique Lhuillier, Ezra Santos or Michael Cinco?
Ang talagang ikinabaliw pa ng marami ay ang sinabi niyang ipinanalo ni Miriam Quiambao ang national costume ni Barraza sa isang Miss Universe pageant. Fact is, iba pala ang nanalong candidate ng best in national costume.
Kaya nga hindi na kami nagtaka nang marami ang natuwa nang madapa si Stella. Kulang na lang ay ipagdiwang nila iyong pangyayaring iyon.
“Nowadays, karma is digital….kaya ang bilis.”
“Congratz! You DESERVE IT stella araneta! I wish u were wearing that CAKE gown when u tripped!”
“I told you Diyosas and Bil**chinas, eto ang isa sa mga hiniling nten during our vigil. Hahahaha magbago ka na kasi Madame!”
“Parang final destination movie! You better sleep with one eye open! Mahirap iwasan ang sumpa ng sangkabekihan!!! Hahahaha.”
‘Yan ang comments ng marami nang madapa si Aling Stella.
Perong isang guy na napakagaling ng explanation kaya makinig ka Aling Stella.
“This is not just about blaming someone because we lost. This about finally speaking up against the fact that the people handling our country’s beauty pageants are Colombians. There are a lot of talented Filipino designers around the world. Like Francis Libiran that was featured in America’s Next top model. Like Monique Lhuillier or Michael Cinco. Instead, Stella Araneta who is a Colombian National chose to hire a Colombian designer who knows nothing about Filipino culture. She even said in a media interview that Filipino designers are not good. That angers us because she has been wearing designs of Filipino designers as well. We welcomed her and accepted her as our own. But to say that our Designers are not good enough is a great disappointment. This is an issue we have been fighting for decades. The only reason why we did not react like this before is because we respect Stella Araneta before. But this time, we will not let our country be tricked nor controlled by someone whose heart is not Filipino. This is not about winning miss universe anymore. This is about getting what we deserve and that is freedom from her clutches of lies and deceptions.”
O, loud and clear ‘yan, Aling Stella. Tsupi!!!!!!!!!!!!!
