Say them loud and clear-sheer glamour, pure elegance, ultra sophistication, beaming class, beauty queen confidence, oozing sex appeal, striking choice of exquisite ensemble, perfect queenly walk, slow music, and such would all lead to mean the evening gown competition.

Some noteworthy ensembles are better appreciated in motion more than in still. With the most appropriate do, make up, walk, stare, pose, feel, etc., the ensembles are even justified more and thus the ladies donning them appear more striking than usual. Any that is too flashy suck up the wearers to dismay. Any that is too plain needed to be worked on too much by the wearers to stand out in the crowd of many goddesses of beauties.

At the Grand Ballroom of the Crimson Hotel at Filinvest City in Alabang on November 29, a total of 87 delegates competed in 2013 the Miss Earth pageant evening gown presentation.
