LOS ANGELES – Beauty queen and actress Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach took the United States by storm recently.
After gracing the Los Angeles show of Filipino fashion designer Mark Bumgarner, the 2015 Miss Universe revealed she was planning to hold a book tour in the United States for her first ever novel, “Queen of the Universe.”
Earlier, Pia, now Mrs. Jeremy Jauncey, shined in the Milan Fashion Week 2023 in Italy. Published reports stated Pia’s Milan Fashion Week presence was marked by a stunning deep purple coat and matching black leather boots from Bally. She effortlessly pulled off looks from brands like Loro Piana, Fendi, Moschino, and Tod’s.
Pia was the final muse for the Mark Bumbarner show, Inquirer reported, adding she walked the catwalk with grace, donning a striking black strapless corset gown with a plunging neckline, a sheer bodice, and an elegant train.
Bumgarner’s collection was celebrated not only for its exquisite designs but also for the hard work of his team, the report added. “So many beautiful pieces in this new collection,” said Pia.
On Instagram and reported by GMA News, Pia posted some snaps of herself in Los Angeles, California, along with a caption of her future plans for her book.
“Short and sweet, but guess what… we’ll be back soon!” she wrote with the USA flag emoji.
“Currently planning a US book tour for #QueenOfTheUniverse next year, and we already have a few states in mind — Hawaii, SF/LA, Arizona, Oregon, Texas, and NYC,” she added according to the report.
The book tour is slated to happen next year.
“I’m already so excited and can’t wait to meet all of you in person!” she said.
“Queen of the Universe” was published and distributed in local bookstores last month. The book will also be released internationally in November, it was reported.
Pia follows fellow celebrities Heart Evangelista, Alden Richards, Maine Mendoza and Michael V who have written and launched their books.
