Controversial Gown of Miss Bohol Sandugo 2013

A collective gasp and then a momentary silence greeted the entrance of Miss Alicia during the Evening Gown Competition of  the 2013 Miss Bohol Sandugo Pageant

You see, she wore one of the newest trends in evening gown design.

The so- called " Flash Your Knickers or Grandma's Panties"  gown is designed like a leotard wrapped with a skirt overlay.

Lara Quigaman started the trend

2005 Miss International Precious Lara Quigaman started the trend in 2011 when she hosted the Bb Pilipinas Pageant that year wearing a Michael Cinco gown that was later copied around the world

Miss Mexico, Miss Russia and even our very own Miss Philippines Janine Tugonon wore similarly- designed gowns in the 2012 Miss Universe Pageant.

Part  Three: Love My Panties? want to see More? 
During the 2013 Miss North Carolina wore a similar gown too . Too bad that her very awkward presentation skills made her look trashy and most probably the reason why she didn't advance to the Top Five

Back to Miss Alicia's gown. The crowd reaction was expected for Bohol, in general, is very modest and conservative when it comes to dressing up
Personally, I am among the undecided as to what I think of the gown.

It was Miss Alicia's classy and very confident way of carrying the gown that saved it from being a fashion faux pas. She was such a diva onstage and she just lit up the entire stage with her beaming smile.

Lucky her that the judges looked beyond the gown and went for the presentation and overall impression.

How about you my dear blog readers? Can you share your opinions?
