MANILA – Filipina beauty queen Ariella Arida was among the 12 Miss Universe 2013 candidates who were featured in the music video of “In Another Life,” a song by Russian singer Emin.
While the music video was uploaded on YouTube last November 20, 2013, Filipino fans of Arida only had a glimpse of the clip on Thursday, when the Filipina beauty queen reposted it on her Twitter account.
In the video, Emin is seen dreaming about being with the Miss Universe contestants, including Arida, until he was “brought back to reality” with businessman Donald Trump of “The Apprentice.”
Arida makes her first appearance at the 2:43 mark, where she walks down the stairs with other candidates.
Another scene shows Arida wearing a sexy white bikini.
Arida was named Miss Universe 2013 third-runner up last November 9, replicating the success of one of her predecessors, Shamcey Supsup. She continued the string of beauty pageant victories for the Philippines led by Megan Young, who was crowned the country’s first ever Miss World.
The Laguna-born beauty graces the January 2014 cover of the local fashion magazine Metro wearing a bikini designed by Hermes.
