One of the anticipated pre-pageant activities leading up to the finals happened today, as Binibining Pilipinas Charities, Inc. (BPCI) formally presented its official roster of candidates before the press.
In a warm and exclusive gathering at the Sunset Pavilion in Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila, the thirty-four delegates of Binibining PIlipinas 2015 displayed sultry elegance as they walked the ramp before the discriminating eyes of sponsors, guests, and the media.
These gorgeous Filipinas came from all over the country, besting over a hundred aspirants who joined the rigorous four-day screening back in January.
The lineup consists of local pageant winners, graduates from top schools, artists, and working professionals who excel in their respective fields, befitting the profile of modern-day Filipinas.
