Pia Wurtzbach told she'd 'never make it to fashion weeks,' Jeremy Jauncey reveals

Pia Wurtzbach finally made it to Paris Fashion Week, but it turned out that the journey was not easy even for the Miss Universe 2015.

On Instagram, Monday, Pia's husband Jeremy Jauncey shared a photo of the beauty queen's look during her PFW debut.

He also penned a lengthy caption, revealing Pia's three-year struggle to make it to the European fashion scene.

"We had no network, no opportunities and no credibility," he said. "I've been with you as you worked every angle, took every meeting, trusted many who promised so much and delivered so little."

Jeremy wrote about his wife's "passionate, relentless, undefeatable drive to achieve" in order to chase her dreams.

"But quietly, under the radar, you grinded. And grinded. And grinded. And despite even as early as this year being told you'd never make it to fashion weeks and your best years were behind you, you did," he said.

"And you delivered. To a level even we didn't hope for in our wildest dreams."

Before gracing Paris, Pia was also at the Milan Fashion Week, generating high media impact value along with Heart Evangelista and Liza Soberano.

"So whilst social media only shows the glitz & the glamour, never forget that every story starts somewhere... and I know how far away this story started for you. I'm so proud of you @piawurtzbach," Jeremy said.

Pia, 34,  has been quite the achiever recently. She published her first book, "Queen of the Universe," and attended the Manila International Book Fair.

She also graced the Cannes Film Festival red carpet.

Pia and Jeremy got married in a private wedding in Seychelles last March. The couple got engaged last year.
