Miss Philippines Laura Lehmann has made it to the Top 40 contestants in the Miss World 2017 pageant. The finale of the event will be held today (November 18) at China's Sanya City Arena, at 7.30 pm SGT.
The beautiful TV host from Makati has already won in her group's Head-to-Head challenge and was also included in the Top 5 of the 'Beauty with a Purpose' segment of the pageant.
In the 'Beauty with a Purpose' challenge, Lehmann discussed her five-year plan of helping needy mothers under the care of Jose R. Reyes Memorial Medical Center in Manila. Her aim is to support the production of more breast milk that would combat malnutrition and reduce the number of underweight babies. She has helped the center with a milk pasteurizer, mechanical breast pumps and a special freezer to preserve breast milk.
She has rightly said in her 'Beauty with a Purpose' video, "I know that as Miss World Philippines, I'm not Superwoman. I can't change the world. But maybe if we just do the little things, then at the end it makes a difference."
The last Filipino to have won the Miss World crown was Megan Young in 2013. Will Laura be able to repeat Megan's magic?
While you wait for the final event to unfold, check out some beautiful pictures of Miss Philippines Laura Lehmann.

Today we are heading to Sanya! Our destination for the final night of @MissWorld :) ❤️ As we depart, I just wanted to bid a proper Goodbye to the beautiful Shenzhen province :) ⛰ We were so lucky to have stayed in such a fresh, clean & scenic environment and I wouldn’t have had it any other way! :) We travelled in groups all across the place and while people normally would have been bothered by the crowd we created, the Shenzhen people were the complete opposite - sooo honored, warm & excited to see us all! I’ve always known the Chinese to be a hardworking people, but coming here has taught me how well they run their communities & how warm their people are. I am in love. ❤️☺️ Thank you Shenzhen & I will most definitely be back :) @missworld @missworldltd #MissWorld2017 #MissWorld #MW2017 #LabanLau #LauraForTheWorld
Day 9: Touring more of the historic towns of China. ??❤️ This one is 1000 years old :) Love how @missworld is giving us chances to be travellers & students. Being a beauty Queen here is definitely not all about glitz & glamour :) @missworldltd #MissWorld #MissWorld2017 #MW2017 #LauraForTheWorld #LabanLau
Day 6: Last night’s @MissWorld charity dinner was a huge success as candidates auctioned off their gifts for a great cause!! ? We each offered just small & simple gifts from our countries, but when pulled together, these gifts created a profound and collective impact. :) ? The outcome was such a telling message of the powers of collaboration. If only the whole world worked this way... :) ? • • • Wearing @MarkBumgarner, Styled by @IAmKatrinaCruz, Jewelry by @jacatel #MissWorld #MissWorld2017 #MW2017 #LabanLau #LauraForTheWorld

Bench Fashion Week OOTD by the best @markbumgarner / Earings by @jacatel. ? It was so nice seeing the clothes & designs of rising Filipino designers. Besides the fact that everything was so new and fresh, I really appreciated the fact that everything was local as well. Good for the Philippines. :) #LoveLocal @bcbench
I know a lot of you have been wondering why I haven't been at the games lately. :) This here is the reason and the secret I've kept for quite some time. It's nerve-wracking, but I also just feel so excited and lucky to be part of something that makes our country so proud. :) With its Beauty With A Purpose projects, the Miss World Organization is truly unique as it centers and invests itself in the value of giving back to the Filipino - and that is really the reason why I chose this pageant. :) ❤️ And so - I am Laura Lehmann, Candidate #15, UAAP City :) (Hehe ?) See you all on September 3! #MWP2017 @msworldphil Makeup: @abtkurniawan Dress: @markbumgarner
