My Binibining Pilipinas 2013 Top 15 Final Hot Picks!

After some careful deliberation, looking at all the pictures and watching all of their videos, most importantly seeing them live in action (during their fashion show a while ago) – I finally was able to come up with the 15 girls whom I thought should advance to the semifinals and win the coveted 2013 Binibining Pilipinas crowns come Sunday night!

My Top 15 Final Hot Picks!

My Top 15 Final Hot Picks!

My Miss Universe Philippines 2013

Binibini 13 Charmaine Elima

Binibini 13 Charmaine Elima

CHARMAINE ELIMA (13)

Charmaine easily became a favorite the moment she submitted her application. This Cum Laude from Sienna College has been consistent all through out the competition. Her beauty won’t be ignored wherever in all of seven continents. Her universal appeal and calm demeanor catapult her on top of my list thus having the edge over 49 other girls. As I’ve said, it’s the MUP title or nothing for her.

My Binibining Pilipinas International 2013

Binibini 31 Maria Angelica De Leon

Binibini 31 Maria Angelica De Leon

MARIA ANGELICA DE LEON (31)

Maria Angelica or Mariel’s beauty is without question a unique one for a Filipina. This celebrity daughter may not be the cup of tea of everyone but her mere facial beauty could easily toppled most of the girls in the competition. Mariel would go on to win one of the crowns and that is with certainty – and by her own merit, of course!

My Binibining Pilipinas Tourism 2013

Binibini 19 Hannah Ruth Sison

Binibini 19 Hannah Ruth Sison

HANNAH RUTH SISON (20)

Hannah could easily win the Universe or the International sash had Maine and Mariel not entered this year’s competition. This title may not be the most prestigious one but winning one of the crowns, nonetheless is already a big honor.  Miss Sison is pure class and just smart enough to clinch one of the title, I believe. After she went down on my second to the last hot picks, my faith in her got revived believing that she’s after all a deserving queen for the golden edition!

My Binibining Pilipinas Supranational 2013

Binibini 39 Mutya Johanna Datul

Binibini 39 Mutya Johanna Datul

MUTYA JOHANNA DATUL  (39)

I figured Mutya with her perfect face and figure would go on to win the rights to represent the Philippines at the Miss Supranational where mere beauty and presence is what matters most. Mutya is perfect for that pageant because no pageant in the world would ignore such beauty!

MY SEMI-FINALISTS

5TH. RIA RABAJANTE (NO.1)

1 Ria Rabajante

6TH. BEA ROSE SANTIAGO (NO.20)

My Top 5 For Binibining Pilipinas 2013 Best In National Costume!

The Binibining Pilipinas 2013 had its Press Presentation last March 18 at the grand ballroom of the Makati Shangri-la Hotel where the girls also presented their National Costume where the best one would win an award come finals night on April 14. The girls opened the presentation wearing swimsuits in different prints and proceeded with the “NatCos” presentation.

Here are my five favorite costumes from the bunch of 50 lovely ladies!

Binibini No 38 Mariz Ong

Binibini No 38 Mariz Ong

I love the traditional yet modern flare of this costume. It’s like a mix of everything else but a Filipiniana dress which is what I love most  about it. She looked like a daughter of a certain Sultan! Bravo!

Binibini No 33 Parul Shah

Binibini No 33 Parul Shah

This Filipina-Indian goddess is looking oh-so-mighty fine wearing this Sarimanok-inspired Filipiniana! When we say ultra modern terno sleeve – Parul coined the definition!

Binibini No 3 Zandra Florez

Binibini No 3 Zandra Florez

At last year’s Miss Philippines Earth, Zandra rocked a similar national costume and eventually won the award.  I can totally see her winning the same award this year for this year’s edition of the Binibining Pilipinas! The stunning “flowery” details of her terno top  infused with religious symbolism are just  beyond!

Binibini No 45 Imelda Schweighart

Binibini No 45 Imelda Schweighart

What I probably loved about what Imee’s wearing are the leggings! Now, that’s a cool Filipiniana dress! Color matching the 50th anniversary of the pageant, Imee carried this with ease and confidence!

Binibini No 47 Aiyana Mickiewicz

Binibini No 47 Aiyana Mickiewicz

This is sophistication at its best! This could even pass for an evening gown in an international pageant! I love the pearl details on the sleeves and the bodice! Matching the dress with an Imeldific hair is perfection! Plus, the lower part is a welcome twist for it gives the wearer something to play on! Aj werked this to high heavens!

So who do you think will win the National Costume award? To see the rest of the costumes click HERE
