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!

MJ as she's fondly called be her fans, won on her 3rd try! She's now a beacon of inspiration for aspiring beauty queens and seasoned pageant contestants!

a new title is added to the roster! Bb. Pilipinas Intercontinental is Kris Tiffany Janson! Can she win this elusive title for her country?

Kris Tiffany Janson was awarded Bb. Pilipinas-Intercontinental and will compete for the Miss Intercontinental crown in Germany this winter.

She's one of the major favorites!
one of the major favorites: Yvette Santiago has a big shoes to fill as the reigning Miss Supranational is also a Filipina. But with a face like that? Her lowest placement can be 2nd place at the very least!

Yvethe Marie Santiago won the title of Bb. Pilipinas-Supranational, and will travel to the Miss Supranational 2014 competition to take place in October.
