There is no doubt that our very own Miss Universe candidate Celeste Cortesi has been making noise in the upcoming pageant as the beauty queen landed on the frontrunners’ list of two international publications.

On the other hand, on Saturday, Sash Factor released on its Facebook page that Celeste placed third in their Miss Universe 2022 Final SashPick. Also, they named Dudamel as its top pick, followed by Miss Colombia in the second spot.
