The 24-year-old Filipino-Italian model and beauty queen stunned in a black gown by Anthony Ramirez as she received the award alongside nine other well-accomplished incredible women in politics, arts, business, fashion, tourism, and international relations.

"I am extremely honored to be able to stand alongside brilliant and empowered women, thank you People Asia for this award as a woman of style and substance," she wrote in a statement on social media.

"I will cherish the meaning of this award for the rest of my life and I hope to continue inspiring people through authenticity, relatability and kindness," she added.

Celeste also considered the award as a constant reminder that "beauty should always go beyond physical appearance, how you inspire others and what you do to help your community is what truly matters."

The reigning Miss Universe Philippines has been preparing to represent the Philippines at the 71st Miss Universe pageant in New Orleans, Louisiana, USA this January.
