Hail to the King and Queen.

At the jam-packed Kallang Theatre yesterday (February 26, 2017), Dream Top Model 2017 crowned their newest King and Queen: Paulo Canlas (Male Grand Winner) and Irayori Gonzales (Female Grand Winner).

The two competed against 22 other male and 22 other female candidates in the grandest Overseas Filipino Workers (OFW) modeling competition in Singapore.

The candidates competed in various categories: Production Wear; Street Wear (designs by top fashion designer Yves Camingue); Sexy Creative; Creative; and Evening Wear. From 46 candidates, they were then trimmed down to the Top 20.

Paulo stood out from the rest for his surprising and daring presentations: from wearing lighted bulbs hanging on his t-shirt as his introduction to dragging a gigantes costume for his creative production number. Meanwhile, Irayori exuded beauty, confidence, and charm all-throughout the competition.

The event was organized by Morpheus Hub Events and Productions (with founders/star builders Arthur Jake Villanueva, Dhave Dela Cruz, and Maria Anthonethe Lim).

Congratulations to the organizers and all the candidates!
