The years 1969 and 1973 are probably two of the most important dates, so far in the history of Philippine Beauty Pageant because these are the years when the Philippine beauties (Gloria Diaz and Margie Moran) conquered the universe. Now that we are all looking forward to the 2010 Ms Universe, it’s nice to go back in time and relive the priceless moments of the Philippines Beauty Queens.
1969 – When a man conquered the moon, a woman from the Philippines conquered the Universe. The crowning of Ms. Gloria Diaz – the first Philippine Ms Universe.
1973 – Four years after, Margie Moran was crowned as the 2nd Ms Universe from the Philippines.
