The Binibining Pilipinas 2014 Top 40 is officially presented to media
Forty of the country’s most beautiful Filipinas were presented to the members of the press and other guests during the Binibining Pilipinas 2014 Official Press Presentation held 19 February at the Luzon Ballroom of the Sofitel.
The stunning young Filipinas who came from all over the Philippines walked the ramp in front of sponsors, guests, and the media. The 40 beauty queen hopefuls were trimmed down from over a hundred aspirants during the rigorous four-day screening back in January. Since 1964, the Binibining Pilipinas Charities, Inc. (BPCI) has been the country’s prestigious discoverer and trainer of young ladies who represent us in well-known international beauty tilts. In a span of five decades, BPCI has proven its caliber as a credible institution that eyes these potential candidates, vaunting a resume that begins with Gloria Diaz’s Miss Universe win in 1969. In the last few years, the Philippines has been rising through the ranks as a beauty powerhouse with the impressive top five finishes of Venus Raj, Shamcey Supsup, Janine Tugonon, and Ariella Arida in the last four Miss Universe contests.
Last year’s golden batch of winners, led by Miss International 2013 Bea Rose Santiago and Miss Supranational 2013 Johanna Datul, Miss Universe 2013 3rd runner up Ariella Arida, and Miss Tourism Queen International 2013 Top 10 finalist Cindy Miranda, brought immense pride to the country by doing well in their respective international competitions.
This year’s roster of candidates include local pageant winners, graduates from top schools, artists, working professionals, and models who went through months of extensive training even before they joined the pageant.
The 2014 Binibining Pilipinas candidates still have a lot on their plates leading up to the Grand Coronation Night. The Fashion Show is set on March 6, and the much-anticipated Parade of Beauties will be held on March 22. The Grand Coronation Night will be held on March 30 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum and telecast live at ABS-CBN.
Miss Universe 2013 Maria Gabriela Isler of Venezuela and Russian pop star Emin will be two of the special guests in the Binibining Pilipinas 2014 Grand Coronation Night. Gabriela will be one of the judges during the pageant and will help crown this year’s winners, while Emin will lead the list of the hotly-anticipated performers in the 51st edition of the most prestigious beauty contest in the country.
