She also thanked her glam team, she calls “MarianxMissU,” for being with her in Israel.

“Of course to the #MarianxMissU team 💕 Love you all! Thanks for joining me in this memorable trip. Here’s to making more memories together! 😍” Marian wrote.

Marian also thanked designer Francis Libiran and his team for creating her outfit for the finals night.

She said the piece was made in such a short notice.

“Maraming salamat for helping me look my best that evening,” she said.

The actress attached her photos during her judging stint where she wore a dazzling pink off-shoulder dress.
