Stella Marquez Araneta @ Miss Universe Franchise

by: Psychic August

"How long will Stella Marquez de Araneta, now 77 yrs old,  keep the Miss Universe franchise?"

Madame Stella Marquez-Araneta keeps the Miss Philippines Universe franchise as long as she is alive, as the Philippine franchise was acquired for her by her husband; she still has several years ahead of her.

After her tenure, the chair of the Miss Philippines Universe franchise will be passed on to  male relative of her husband  (Araneta), but her South American friends and relations will still play an active role in it.

Although the head of the franchise, Madame Araneta has been delegating more and more work in the recent years, due to her age, to her close friends and even relatives.  The Colombian fashion designer Alfredo Barraza, who designs the gowns that Miss Philippines Universe gets to wear at the Miss Universe pageant, will stay. There will be no change in this set up in the foreseeable future.

In running the Miss Universe chapter here in the Philippines, Madame Araneta is basically serious, especially in her younger years, although at times her approach and policies have often bordered on being too commercialized.  It is after all, a major business for her and her husband.  But again in the recent years, she has left more of the operation of the franchise to her various South American friends, like the  fashion designer Alfredo Barraza, as mentioned earlier.  Her husband, every now and then, gets to lend a hand.

Admittedly these friends of hers, in taking over the hands on running the organization, have had a not so positive effect on the franchise which can often be seen in the approach and the presentation of candidates to the Miss Universe pageants.  With everything that is said, at the end of the day, the Araneta couple is generally pleased with the outcome of how their business is run, as well as the profits.

  1. She needs to stash away all BPCi's gowns in a museum or better yet send them to Tacloban. Please stop recycling them!

  9. Unawain na lang natin ngayon si Mdame STELLA ARANETA, 77 years old na kasi sya. Ang LOLA ko 77 years old din, she was diagnosed to have ALZHEIMER DISEASE, kaya yung fashion sense niya way back 1940's pa! Walang tiwala si Mdame STELLA sa FILIPINO DESIGNERS kasi nga masyadong way ahead ang fashion sense ng mga Pinoy designers. She's not aware kung gaano na kagaling ang mga FILIPINO DESIGNERS! Kaya dapat magising ang BPCI, allow MADAME STELLA ARANETA TO RETIRE! Mag-alaga na lang kaya siya ng mga pusa, bagay yun sa kanya kesa makialam pa sya sa BPCI di ba?
