Miss Universe 2016 Iris Mittenaere passed on her crown wearing a stunning gown by Dubai-based Filipino designer Michael Cinco.
Mittenaere looked stunning in what Cinco described as a “scarlet red ombre couture gown in full Swarovski crystals” as she handed over the title to Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters of South Africa during the Miss Universe 2017 coronation night in Las Vegas.
In January, when Pia Wurtzbach passed on her Miss Universe crown to Mittenaere, who represented France, in the Miss Universe 2016 pageant held in Manila she wore a blue gown by Cinco.
Cinco, who set up his couture label in 2003, has dressed a number of international stars including Jennifer Lopez, Lady Gaga and country singer Carrie Underwood, Miss World 1994 Aishwarya Rai, and Mariah Carey.
This year alone, he’s dressed crystal heiress Victoria Swarovski for her big day, as well as several royals and even his own niece.
