It was a night of glamour and spectacle! As the 51st edition of the Binibining Pilipinas 2014 had come to a satisfying conclusion held on March 30th at the Araneta Coliseum in Quezon city, Philippines. The night was even extra special with the attendance of the reigning 2013 Pageant queens (Miss Universe, Miss International and Miss Supranational) plus as an added treat to pageant fanatics, 2 major Filipina queens Miss Universe 1973 (Margie Moran) and Miss International 1979 (Melanie Marquez), who were both absent at last year’s Golden anniversary, were also in attendance!
Mary Jean Lastimosa (25), bested 39 other hopefuls and was crowned Binibining Pilipinas-Universe 2014! She will represent the Philippines in the 2014 Miss Universe pageant later this year in a venue yet to be determined!
Armed with a stunning face is the new Binibining Pilipinas International 2014 Mary Anne Bianca Guidotti, who will try to capture a back to back feat in Japan later this year! She was crowned by the reigning Miss International 2013, Bea Rose Santiago!
Kris Tiffany Janson was awarded Bb. Pilipinas-Intercontinental and will compete for the Miss Intercontinental crown in Germany this winter.
Yvethe Marie Santiago won the title of Bb. Pilipinas-Supranational, and will travel to the Miss Supranational 2014 competition to take place in October.
Laura Lehmann and Hannah Sison completed the magic 7 as they were proclaimed the 1st and 2nd runners-up, respectively.
Completing the Top 15 semi-finalists were Julian Flores, Joanna Romero, Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach, Nichole Manalo, Zahara Soriano, Emma Tiglao, Kenneth Santiago and Mae Liezel Ramos.
Congratulations to the winners!
Standby for my Qualms and Quibbles….
