Yesterday marked 27 years since Phonthip “Bui” Simon became the second Miss Universe from Thailand after the eternally gorgeous Apasra Hongsakula.
Phontip, who’s now 46 and happily married, won the crown in 1988 and became the United Nations Goodwill Ambassador of Thailand. She currently serves on the boards of several children’s charities including Angels Wings Foundation, which she founded.
Here are photos of Bui when she was announced Miss Universe 27 years ago in Taiwan.
Here’s the latest photo of Bui we have. It was for a Lips magazine shoot two years ago, proving her lasting loveliness.
