Margie Moran-Floirendo

Maria Margarita Moran-Floirendo, (born Maria Margarita Roxas Moran) from the Philippines, won the Miss Universe crown in 1973 in Athens, Greece. She is also known as Margie R. Moran or Margie Moran-Floirendo, and is a granddaughter of former Philippine President Manuel Roxas.

The full-time university student and part-time Auggie Cordero model won the right to represent the country in the Miss Universe pageant after winning the Miss Philippines competition. Moran said that she entered the contest because of the incessant urgings of friends and family.

The 19-year-old, 5 ft 6 in beauty was one of the favorites during that edition, also garnering the Miss Photogenic title.

She eventually married Congressman Antonio "Tony Boy" Floirendo and settled in Davao, managing a resort called "Pearl Farm" in Samal Island.
