Nikki de Moura, the representative of the Miss Grand Philippines pageant, caught everyone's attention during the Miss Grand International 2023 preliminaries with her stunning evening gown and swimsuit attire. She chose a mesmerizing Rian Fernandez creation in various shades of pink, adorned with glitter and featuring a deep neckline and sheer overskirt for a subtly seductive touch. The bodice of the gown was meticulously crafted, encrusted with glass crystals and rhinestones. Nikki complemented her look with long, dangling earrings, smokey eye makeup, and curly hair. Later, she graced the runway for the swimsuit competition, wearing MGI Swimwear x Bikini Passport, sporting the same accessories, makeup, and hairstyle. The highly-anticipated Miss Grand International coronation night is scheduled to take place on October 25th in Vietnam. Nikki's participation marks a significant moment as she is the first representative of Miss Grand Philippines under ALV Circle. While the Philippines has yet to win a Miss Grand International title since the pageant's establishment in 2013, the country has achieved notable placements, with Nicole Cordoves and Samantha Bernardo securing first runner-up titles in 2016 and 2021, respectively.
