ELLE: Bernadette Belle Ong is Owning It

Written by: Chelsea Tang
Gracing the Magazine's Cover in their August 2021 issue, ELLE does a deep dive with me during my Miss Universe Singapore reign. Hailed as the "New Age Queen" by ELLE themselves, we go through topics like the stigma associated with pageantry and how I was able to flip the tables around and drive a more meaningful conversation that touches on more pressing socio-economic concerns, like #StopAsianHate in the midst of Covid-19.

I aboslutely love how thorough this piece is! Written eloquently with mentions of pop-culture references that leave strong messages in the fashion, entertainment and reality TV space, this article is a 6-page spread gives you an enthralling look into my experience as a beauty pageant queen.
