This costume has made Susie one of the 15 semifinalists in the known pageant. Hence, she was not able to get the crown as the hailed Miss Universe 2003 was Amelia Vega from the Dominican Republic.

2. Yuumi Kato

Yuumi Kato became the representative of Japan for Miss Universe in 2018. For her national costume entry, she has chosen one of their country’s famous superheroes, Sailor Moon.

With its appearance during the Miss Universe pageant, the makers of today’s local television series Darna gave acknowledgement to Cortesi for presenting the said superhero on stage.

“We hope that, like our beloved Filipino superheroine, Celeste will continue to serve as a source of inspiration and empowerment for women all around the world,” makers of “Mars Ravelo’s Darna” said.
