The 59th Miss International pageant was held last November 12 at the Tokyo Dome City Hall. The Philippines’ candidate Patch Magtanong made a Top 8 finish.
In an Instagram post, Kylie praised Patch for her “exquisite performance” in the pageant.
“I felt like a mom watching the pageant for the first time live, I was so nervous. I don’t think I’m ever going to watch another pageant live again. You were amazing and a great representative of the Philippines.
“Your speech on women empowerment and gender equality was moving. Congratulations, this is only the beginning,” she said.
