Bb Pilipinas 2014: Head shots on exhibit at the Gateway Mall

Wondering where the official head shots of Binibining Pilipinas 2014 are? They are on exhibit at the Gateway Mall ground floor.

Since not all of these photos are available online, I took the chance yesterday to take a picture of all of the panels. Who do you think has the best face among them all?

Bb Pilipinas 2014: Top 15 Catwalk Divas

In 2010 Venus Raj’s pilapil (rice paddies) walk rocked the Miss Universe stage. A year after, Shamcey Supsup made big waves with her tsunami walk. A year after that, Janine Tugonon placed 1st runner-up in the pageant with her deadly cobra walk. And just last year, the salagubang walk took Belarus by storm as Mutya Johanna Datul won for the Philippines the Miss Supranational crown. These are some of the living proofs that a polished and distinct pasarela could make-or-break a girl’s chances in beauty pageants.

After months — and even years to some — of duck walks, catwalk trainings and modelling sessions, the Binibining Pilipinas 2014 40 official candidates finally hit the Big Dome stage for the annual Fashion Show, clad in JAG’s summer collection.

It was a fierce event, and I was fortunate enough to have witnessed it in person. And after all the walks, turns and sultry poses, here are my list of this year’s Bb Pilipinas catwalk divas. (Photos from Bb Pilipinas)

Bb Pilipinas 2014: Top 15 Best in National Costume

I WAS fortunate enough to witness the Bb Pilipinas 2014 National Costume Competition, which was part of the annual Fashion Show held last night at the Big Dome. As we all wait for the announcement of the Best in National Costume, let me play judge and enumerate the best girls and National Costumes for me.

Here are my considerations for choosing these girls. First, the costume must strongly reflect Philippine culture. Second, how the girl presented and carried her costume. I’m really not into the flamboyant, over-the-top designs. As long as each detail shows coherence to the costume’s theme and that the girl was able to give justice to the costume through a solid presentation, then that is enough to say it is a good national costume.

Bb Pilipinas 2014: Top 10 Best Swimsuit Bodies

Having a killer bikini body is one of the keys to winning in a pageant. It shows how disciplined a girl is and how far she is willing to take to win.

This year’s Binibining Pilipinas candidates surely take this belief by heart as most of them have pageant-ready bodies when they strut their stuff during the official presentation. But here are, in my opinion, the top 10 girls with the best swimsuit bodies. Photo credits to Rappler’s Jose Del.
