It’s not easy being ~confidently classy~ when someone’s getting on your nerves.
Miss Universe 2015, philanthropist, activist, actress, and role model, Pia Wurtzbach just has it all.

At this point, she’s bullet-proof and no one can drag her down. Scroll down below for all the times Pia Wurtzbach kept it real and sassy on social media. We love a queen who’s not afraid to be sweet and a little spicy!
