LOOK: Celeste Cortesi Is Slaying Her Pre-pageant Looks for Miss Universe

On Instagram, she captioned her photos with “This is it Philippines!”

In New Orleans, Cortesi wore a neutral custom outfit designed by Chynna Mamawal and styled by Perry Tabora. She wrote, “Goodnight New Orleans.”

Her latest look is an all-black ensemble by Chris Nick, styled again by Tabora.
