Then it was the turn of the typical costumes and the moment in which Michelle presented to the world her Protectora de Our Coasts dress, with which she sought to honor her African roots and promote recycling.
The dress, blue in color, is inspired by the coasts of the Island.
“It was really a choice of mine, since both of my passions are visiting the beach and seeing that community impact that we can have with our coasts and the environment. I wanted to bring that ecological message to Miss Universe, but combining it with my passion for the Puerto Rican bombshell ”, the beauty had said about her typical costume.
