Precious Lara flashes precious undies during pageant night

Precious Lara flashes 'precious' undies during pageant nightMANILA, Philippines – (UPDATE) Following criticisms against Venus Raj’s controversial curly hairdo, beauty queen Precious Lara Quigaman also came under fire for how she looked during the Bb. Pilipinas 2011 coronation night.

The Internet was abuzz Sunday night with comments on Quigaman’s daring and sexy dress that showed off her gem-studded underwear because of the gown’s long slit.

In an exclusive interview with “Showbiz News Ngayon” on Thursday, Quigaman said people were probably taken aback only because she does not normally appear on TV wearing sexy dresses.

“Siguro ‘yong mga tao nanibago lang sa akin kasi usually kapag lumalabas ako very safe lang lahat ng suot ko, lahat ng damit ko. So siguro nabigla lang sila,” she said.

Quigaman stressed though that she does not think the gown is obscene.

“I don’t think it’s bastos. Hindi ko siya nakitaan ng kahit ano kasi hindi ko naman siya susuotin if it was. And tinanong ko rin ang mga tao beforehand kung okay lang ba and they said it was okay. Kahit ang mom ko tinanong ko siya, sabi niya okay naman,” she said.

According to the beauty queen, she already liked the design of the gown when she saw it the first time.

“Kapag nagsuot naman ako ng gown hindi para gumawa ng issue or para mag-ingay. Dahil gusto ko talaga. Kung ano ang nakita ko na maganda that would fit me at alam ko na hindi ako bastos, then I would wear it,” she said.

Meanwhile, Quiagaman acknowledges the fact that people have varying opinions and she cannot please everybody.

“Hindi ko iisipin kung ano ang iisipin ng ibang tao. Iba iba naman tayo ng tingin sa lahat ng bagay. Sa ibang tao gusto nila, sa ibang tao hindi nila gusto. Katulad ng lagi nating sinasabi, if you don’t have anything nice to say then huwag ka na lang magsalita. Pero siyempre hindi natin sila mapipigilan,” she said.

Quigaman was one of the pageant’s hosts last Sunday, together with Miriam Quiambao, Derek Ramsay and KC Concepcion. –Shiela Reyes, abs-cbnnews.com
