Fresh from her Top 15 placement at Miss International 2022, Hannah Arnold feels nothing but ecstatic about her newest achievement. In an Instagram story, she shares that she feels incredibly grateful for the love and support she has been getting.
Despite failing to advance further into the competition, Hannah’s performance was still impressive and remarkable. Giving us legs for days, she came out stunning in her green one-piece swimsuit. For her evening gown, her silver Leo Almodal gown made her glow from within, exuding grace and class.
Proving to be a quintessential candidate, Hannah definitely showed this when she came out during her national costume presentation.
Complimenting Hannah’s delicate features and elegant demeanor, her soft blue Filipiñana dress made her quite the modern Filipina barbie. Naming it “Pamana” or “heritage”, designer Manny Halasan gives a nod towards the concept of inheriting something sentimental. In this case, it fuses both his and Hannah Arnold’s childhood memories.
