Ex-Supermodel finalist wins Mrs. Philippines Globe 2013


A former Supermodel finalist and mother of two was crowned as Mrs. Philippines Globe 2013, besting 17 other empowered married women and single mothers in the second annual beauty pageant held at the Sunset Pavilion of Sofitel Philippine Plaza Hotel in Pasay City last Saturday.

Ruby Jane Magsipoc-Lehmann, a 39-year-old, 5’9 former Supermodel Philippines finalist (in 1990), won the coveted crown, succeeding last year’s winner Joyce Pascual-Agsaway and went home with more than P300,000 worth of prizes. Lehmann will represent the Philippines at the 2013 Mrs. Globe Pageant to be held in Shenzhen, China from September 19 to 29 this year.

Displaying charm and confidence during the swimsuit and long gown competitions, Lehmann also aced the question-and-answer round. When asked by pageant judge and Bb. Pilipinas-Universe 1985 Joyce Ann Burton-Titular, “If your best friend is struggling with very low self-esteem, what would you advise her?” Ruby Jane replied “I would emphasize the positive aspects of her behavior and compliment her performance and accomplishments. That way, she will develop self-confidence and start to believe in herself.”

Lehmann also won the Most Elegant Woman of the Year (equivalent to Best in Long Gown) award for her impeccable way of carrying her long gown created by Pablo Cabahug, who, in turn, won as Best Designer.

Married to German cruise liner Captain Ronald Lehmann, Ruby Jane is also mother to their two children Jessica Janine, 21, and Carlo, 18.
