Gloria Diaz Miss Universe Photo Album: Remembering The 1969 Miss Universe Pageant

"And the winner of The 1969 Miss Universe Pageant is..." Ang pagpanalo ni Gloria Diaz ng 18th Annual Miss Universe Beauty Pageant (held in Miami Beach) noong 1969, ay isa sa mga most memorable moments na hindi makakalimutan ng marami sa atin. Parang biglang nabuhay ang mga tao at muling nabigyan ng pagasa ang simpleng mamamayan.

Sa linggo ng kanyang pagpanalo, nagpadala ng sulat si President Nixon which read: "When America conquered the moon, the Philippines conquered the Universe!" Kahit saan ka pumunta nakatutok ang lahat sa kanilang mga tv sets at ini-replay ang pageant na paulitulit ng ilang linggo.

Dito nagsimula ang totoong hilig ng pinoy sa mga beauty pageants. Lahat ng mga barrio at baranggay ay nagpakulo ng kanilang sariling local pageants, at ginagaya ng lahat ang pagpanalo ng beauty queen. Si Gloria Diaz ang isa sa mga unang nagbigay insperasyon sa mga pinoy; at sa taong iyon nakatutok ang buong mundo sa ating bayan. For the first time in history, nagkaroon tayo ng isang tinaguriang: "World Class Beauty".

Yep, si Gloria Diaz talaga ang pinakamagandang hayop sa kasaysayan ng Ms. Universe!

Si Gloria Diaz yata ang unang Pinay brown skinned Miss Universe kandidata ng Pilipinas at nanalo pa bilang Miss Universe. Pang MIss Universe o Mr. Universe din ba ang naging bunga ng anak nila ni Vic Vargas?
