Miss Universe 2015 first runner-up Ariadna Gutierrez is stealing the spotlight once again after the Colombian beauty queen was criticized for her dress choice when she attended a White House event on Friday.
Gutierrez was one of the delegates who accompanied Colombian President Juan Manual Santos during his meeting with U.S. President Barack Obama to discuss the future political relations between the two nations after signing the peace agreement with militant group, FARC, Latin Correspondent reported. The 22-year-old stunner was also joined by Miss Universe 2014 winner Paulina Vega.
While Vega was smartly dressed for the occasion with her white blouse, black pants and blazer ensemble, Gutierrez opted to wear a floor-length mauve Oscar dela Renta gown. Unfortunately, Colombian media weren't happy by her choice of gown, claiming her attire was inappropriate for a formal meeting between heads of state, ministers, senators and other officials.
In addition, the press also claimed Gutierrez was "too overdressed" for the event. They even claimed the beauty queen looked like a "cake," and noted that the gown was more appropriate for a gala or red carpet event, according to Pulzo.
Aside from Gutierrez and Vega, Santos' sons Martin and Esteban, actor John Leguizamo and journalist Luis Carlos Velez were also present during the event.
Meanwhile, Gutierrez also recently made headlines when she reportedly received $135,000 (450 million pesos) for her interview with Steve Harvey that aired on Jan. 19. Her Tom Ford dress and shoes during the interview also raised some eyebrows because they cost more than $6,800 (23 million pesos) and $740 (2.5 million pesos), respectively.
In other news, Gutierrez's Miss Universe rival and the pageant's 2015 winner Pia Wurtzbach of the Philippines was recently spotted with a hot date during the fifth annual National Football League (NFL) Honors at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco on Saturday night.
Wurtzbach was spotted on the red carpet with fellow Miss Universe candidate Olivia Jordan of the U.S.A., PhilStar Entertainment noted. She was also one of the presenters along with New England Patriots player Rob Gronkowski at the NFL Honors awards.
Aside from turning heads on the red carpet, the 26-year-old Miss Universe 2015 winner also charmed the audiences as a special correspondent for "Inside Edition's" coverage of the recently concluded "Super Bowl 50."
"Super Bowl" host Levi's Stadium even posted a short clip featuring Wurtzbach and Jordan in the stands, GMA News Online revealed.
"Hope you're enjoying the Levi's Stadium experience Miss Universe!" the Twitter post read.
