Miss Universe Belize Unveils National Costume; Gives Update on Journey So Far

Today on Channel Five’s Open Your Eyes Morning Show the national costume for Miss Universe Belize 2020 was revealed to the nation. It is inspired by the Baron Bliss Lighthouse monument that sits on the coast of Belize City facing the harbour. This costume features the kite season that was brought to life by two Belizean designers. News Five’s Duane Moody speaks with Iris Salguero on her journey so far on the road to the Miss Universe stage in Florida, U.S.A.

Iris Salguero, Miss Universe Belize 2020

“We wanted to do something different apart from culture because every year we do cultural. But there are so many countries as well that represent Mayan culture so I said to stand out, we really have to come with something different; let’s go with something historical.”

Duane Moody, Reporting

As many other countries do in the weeks leading up to the international pageant, national costumes are unveiled and the Miss Universe Belize organization did just that this morning. Sponsored by the Belize Tourism Board, designers David Matus and Roberto Pasos took the inspiration of the Baron Bliss Lighthouse landmark and brought it to life as the costume to be presented by Miss Universe Belize 2020, Iris Salguero.

Roberto Pasos, Designer

“Around six months the entire process to brainstorm, get ideas together, decide which one we are going to work with, what materials we were going to us. So it took around six months.”

David Matus, Designer

“It entails the beautiful Belize Sea; it entails the kites which is a cultural part the costume and it entails history for who Baron Bliss was and what he did for Belize. Iris is a great person representing the whole country. She’s not representing Iris on the stage; she’s representing Belize. So when you see this costume, you supposed to feel a pride and joy knowing that everything about the costume is Belizean. You could relate to it. It is not like something you just pick out of a book and decide to do a costume. This is original, the first time on the big stage. We decide to go different; we decide to be unique about the whole idea.”

Iris Salguero

“Very proud of it and excited and moments like this is where everything just sinks in; the countdown has begun and I can’t wait to be on that international stage, but I am sure that we will make an impact.”

The international pageant is exactly one month away; it will be held on May sixteenth in Florida, U.S.A.  Final details are being ironed out for Salguero to be prepared to represent the Jewel.

Iris Salguero

“Training as much as I can with the opportunities that are given to me to work with a Venezuelan training and an interview coach from the states. They are amazing people and they’ve really been pushing me which I appreciate and so I’ve stepped up to the plate and we are still working, but I am confident. Before I leave, we will do a training session in L.A. with my catwalk coach and then a drilling session for my interview with my speech coach. These women are exceptional, they are powerful, they are inspiring and to be a part of something so amazing, I am so proud of that. And not only myself, but Belize is a part of that which is why we cannot afford to exclude ourselves from important events like this. To all my fellow Belizeans, download the Miss Universe app, you get one free vote and all those votes sum up. I am not really encouraging anyone to buy votes, but that one vote is already so much support and it creates a change. I will also be setting up a GoFundMe page for sponsorships. If you feel that you want to give anything from the bottom of your heart, anything is accepted and it goes towards covering the cost and little details that we still have to pay for to be able to go to Miss Universe fully prepared.”

Miss Belize Universe Is BHA’s Travel Ambassador

Bringing the industry back is no small feat, but small steps build to long strides. The BHA office has been working with the Ministry of Health and Wellness to sensitize and encourage people to get vaccinated. Earlier this month, the Belize Hotel Association assisted in the coordination of the first round of vaccinations for tourism workers at the Best Western Biltmore and Plaza. We then took to Turneffe Atoll, where three-member properties were visited for the administration of the vaccine.

A total of eight member properties and 400 hospitality personnel have received their first vaccine with our assistance thus far. We've also launched the BHA Travel Ambassador campaign in partnership with Miss Belize Universe, Ms. Iris Salguero.

She debuted our collaboration in the Cayo district, visiting a few of our hotel members like Ka'ana, San Igancio Hotel Resort, and The Lodge at Chaa Creek, all the while promoting safe travel. Whist she prepares for the Miss Universe Pageant in Hollywood Florida, she had some time to spare to also visit a few members of Ambergris Caye. Follow her Instagram and Facebook accounts to join her on her BHA travels so far. She will continue her travels upon her return.

We started membership drives in February, beginning in Caye Caulker and San Pedro. The most recent drive took us to the San Ignacio area and, we're happy to have signed a total of eight new members as a result! The Belize Hotel Association continues to work for the sustainable growth of our industry and to motivate our partners to work together.

The Story of Miss Universe Belize Iris Salguero

On Tuesday, Miss Universe Belize Iris Salguero got a hometown send off in San Pedro. A day before leaving the island on her journey to Miss Universe, Salguero was honoured with a farewell motorcade through the streets of the island town. Following the small parade, final preparations were made and today, the beauty ambassador arrived at the municipal airport in Belize City as the final stop before she departs the Jewel for Florida where the sixty-seventh Miss Universe pageant is set to take place. While she carries the weight of the crown to the international stage, Salguero is also taking her story – one of empowerment to women and children. News Five spoke with an emotional Salguero about her message.



Salguero began rising in pageantry in 2015, when she was crowned Miss San Pedro, and then went on to represent Belize in the 2016 Miss World Pageant. She also represented the country as Miss Earth in 2017 and Miss America Latina del Mundo in 2018.

Miss Universe Belize Arrives in Miami for International Pageant

Miss Universe Belize Iris Salguero touched down in Miami this afternoon for the official arrival to the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, where the sixty-ninth Miss Universe pageant takes place. Salguero will participate in the national costume competition on May thirteenth followed by the preliminaries on the fourteenth and then the live show takes place on May sixteenth. Today, News Five caught up with the Belizean beauty ambassador at the P.G.I.A. The confidently beautiful Salguero says she is ready to represent the country on the international stage.

Iris Salguero, Miss Universe Belize 2020

“I am so excited Duane. I would think that I would feel a little bit nervous, but no this is my fourth pageant so I have the experience, I have been training really hard. Everybody has been sending me amazing messages of encouragement and motivation and I am just grateful. And of course I have my flag with me; what more to feel proud and to feel comforted.”

Duane Moody

“Your anticipations when you arrive.”

Iris Salguero

“Well you know, as I arrive, I have to take another COVID test and then quarantine one night in my hotel room until we get my test results. After that, we will have orientation and some fittings to finalise the outfits for the opening dance number. I am excited of course to meet my roommate – it might be Bolivia or Belgium – whichever girl, I know they are sweethearts and I am just excited to start on this experience. You know my national costume is inspired off of Baron Bliss. We wanted something that was a pant suit that gave us kind of sailor vibes given that the fishing industry is a big thing in Belize as well. And of course my red flower, the island girl touch and the red white and blue – the colors of our beautiful flag. I will make you guys proud. Our presence will be felt, our voice will be heard. I know a lot of you believe in me and that is what just keeps me inspired and motivated every day. I have said it so many times and never get tired of saying it. This is not just my story, this is our journey. I am your Miss Universe Belize and I know that I will make every single one of you proud.”
