MANILA – Karen Gallman’s “very hard” preparations paid off as she dominated the Miss Intercontinental media presentation on Thursday.
There were two special awards given during the event held at Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila -- – Standout Beauty and Media Favorite -- and Gallman won both.
During the media presentation, Gallman wore a revealing version of the Philippine terno.
She graced the stage in a white mullet dress with a low neckline.
Dubbed a look-alike of American model Kendall Jenner, Gallman is hoping to win the country’s first Miss Intercontinental crown.
The Philippines came close to winning Miss Intercontinental twice – Christi McGarry and Katarina Rodriguez both finished first runner-up in the pageant in 2015 and 2017, respectively.
The 47th Miss Intercontinental coronation night will be held at the Mall of Asia Arena on January 26.
