Camille’s message to past Queens

“Many have made today and my journey as Queen Universe possible. But one thing I have learned is that it is the generous spirit of every person’s support that has made my reign so meaningful and memorable.
Special thanks to all the past Queens for all your support not only throughout my reign but through your daily contributions to the community to make a difference. May we all continue to inspire others especially the youth!!!
It was a great opportunity for me to meet you all and make memories i will never forget! ❤❤❤  ”

Queen to Queen Birthday Greetings

From Queen of the Universe 2015 Camille to Gender Proud founder and Queen of the Universe 2002, Geena Rocero:

“Happiest birthday to this beautiful, iconic and strong woman i know! More power to you and may you continue to be an inspiration in the community! “


2014 Queen Veejay Floresca at LA Fashion Week

Our 2014 Queen, Veejay Floresca, was the grand champion of the LAFW Design Competition in 2014 and she is the featured designer this year. She showcased her Reform Collection S/S2016.  She partnered with Queen USA 2005 Genesis Ilada, who provided the makeup design.   Among the models were Queen Universe finalist Sabel Gonzalez,  last year’s Universe 2nd runner-up, Maya Besana,  Queen USA 2006 Kendy and USA 2012 finalist Lee Faelnar Te.

In Veejay’s words:

“My collection is called “Reformed”. It is my Spring/Summer 2016 collection that I designed as my thesis collection in my masters degree in Academy of Art University in San Francisco. I did this as my final collection before I graduate in December. This collection did not make it in New York Fashion Week, but I did not stop. I continued working and finished this collection and showed in LA Fashion Week.


As part of my advocacy to change the wrong perspective about transwomen, I decided to collaborate with another creative transwoman I know. She is Genesis Ilada who works as a creative makeup artist. We talked about the overall look. She did an amazing job.


I decided to use transwomen as models because I believe in them. I believe that transwomen can be runway models as well, and i want to promote that.


With this collection, it proves that fashion is beyond gender, it is about pure creativity and hard work.”

A message from Queen Camille

Earlier this year, our Queen Camille Anderson travelled to the Philippines to deliver supplies to those affected by the devastating Typhoon Haiyan.  Her home city of Tacloban was hardest hit.  Thank you Camille for improving the lives of others, while fulfilling your role as a true Queen.  From Camille:

“Before my reign ends in a month, i would like to thank thise who have supported me in this cause. You all have given me the opportunity to share a smile with these kids amidst the calamity they have went through after the Typhoon Haiyan in Tacloban City.”
