Isabelle Daza-Semblat is indeed a spitting image of her mother Gloria Diaz, and her recreation of Diaz’ winning moment as 1969 Miss Universe serves as proof.
The 28-year-old actress sent social media abuzz after she dressed up as her mom, the 1969 Miss Universe titleholder, during the costume birthday party of Tim Yap on Thursday, January 19. Guests at Yap’s party were equally impressed over the astounding resemblance between Daza and Diaz.
“When your mom is iconic enough to be a costume. Thanks for the crown,” Daza captioned a black and white photo of her Gloria Diaz impersonation.
The model-actress revealed that she even cut her side burns to perfectly recreate her mom’s iconic look.
Daza also reenacted Diaz’s reaction during her crowning moment as she was named best in costume in Yap’s shindig. She received a ticket to Europe from the eventologist as her prize.
Daza thanked hair stylist Nantey West, make-up artist Anthea Bueno and fashion stylist Liz Uy for helping her attain a spot on transformation.
The birthday party was also punctuated by Yap’s marriage proposal to his partner Javi Martinez Pardo.
