Miss Philippines Pia Wurtzbach Goes Make-Up Free Following Miss Universe Mishap


It appears the new Miss Universe is over the drama already.

Miss Philippines, 26-year-old Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach, officially commenced her Miss Universe duties today, after Sunday night's painfully awkward telecast, in which host Steve Harvey accidentally crowned Miss Colombia as the winner, before correcting the mistake live on air.

Her first order of business as winner? A make-up free Instagram photo!

My 1st day as #MissUniverse has officially begun! Starting it off fresh-faced and #ConfidentlyBeautiful #đź‘‘

A post shared by Iris Mittenaere (@missuniverse) on

"My 1st day as #MissUniverse has officially begun. Starting it off fresh-faced and #ConfidentlyBeautiful," Wurtzbach wrote, adding a crown emoji for good measure.

EXCLUSIVE: Host Steve Harvey "Did Not Practice" Announcing the Winner

Once the beauty queen was all dolled up, she posted another photo on her personal account with the caption, "42 years of drought and now it finally reigns :)"

We can't help but notice she's holding onto her crown -- though, after watching it get taken from Miss Colombia's head in front of millions of viewers, we don't blame Wurtzbach for playing it safe!
