Miss World Guyana 2014 Rafieya Husain will be in Manila from 25 August to 5 September
After the ladies from Thailand and Myanmar, another foreign beauty queen is scheduled to arrive in the country on August 25 for a 12-day pageant training with Gouldian.
Rufieya Aasieya Husain, Miss World Guyana 2014, will be in the country to get further polish and improvement before setting herself up for the trip to London to vie for the crown of Miss World 2014.
But before going to Manila, Zara (as she is fondly called) made sure that she has already started her Beauty With A Purpose (BWAP) Project in Guyana where she helped raise funds for the Help and Shelter Organization which seeks to fight domestic violence in Georgetown.

In the ongoing search for Miss Philippines Australia 2014 (and Miss Charity Queen 2014
), one of the Official Candidates vying for the crown currently being held by Melanie Cristine Balagtas (who went on to place in the Top 10 of Miss Philippines Earth 2014
) is the beautiful Arianne Tan of Sydney.
Proudly representing the Philippine-Australia Friendship Association in the annual beauty contest, Arianne enters the competition armed with confidence and a good heart for charity. She is aiming to win in order to further her personal causes and espouse the organization’s ‘Beauty with Humanity’ thrust.
Miss Philippines Australia 2014 will be crowned during the 26th Grand Philippine Sydney Fiesta Kultura scheduled to happen in Prairiewood’s Fairfield Showground on October 6.
Good luck, Arianne! :-D
You can’t deny the fact that having a beauty-queen for a relative can help in creating awareness for a candidate in another pageant. Such is the case of Ibahn Corum Francisco (aka Justin Ryle Francisco) who is representing the Filipino Community of United Arab Emirates in Misters of the Philippines 2014.
Click above to vote for Ibahn
Ibahn is a cousin of Miss Philippines Earth 2013 Angelee delos Reyes (who is confirmed to be one of the hosts for the finals of the male contest along with Carlos Agassi
). In fairness to the other hopefuls, however, the constant connection stops there. The guy can stand out on his own merits.
An Interior Design student at Dubai’s Preston University, he also works with the Al-Futtaim Group. At the moment, he is focusing on the competition because he feels that he can make a good job of representing the Philippines internationally.
While his advocacy – “…to inspire and help others in my own simple way. It may not be that valuable or luxurious, but it would definitely be something that can affect and change their way of living. I believe in the saying that purpose is what gives life meaning.” – comes off a bit too broad, he might be able to zero in on a more specific thrust as he matures along.
Good luck, Ibahn! Vote for him HERE.
Molly challenges Megan with the ALS Ice Bucket
This ALS Ice Bucket Challenge craze is really spreading like wildfire.
After Miss Earth 2013 Alyz Henrich challenged Miss Universe 2013 to do the same thing, Gabriela Isler has challenged Miss World 2013 Megan Young to get splashed on as well.
Will our Queen bite? I’m sure she will.
Now the question is, who will she challenge forward?
Miss International 2013 Bea Rose Santiago? Or Miss Supranational 2013 Mutya Datul? :-D

It is always interesting to size up your opponent up close and personal even before the actual competition dates arrive. The other day, Miss Philippines Earth 2014 Jamie Herrell got the chance to meet one of her fellow delegates in Miss Earth 2014 in the person of Sasi Sintawee, Miss Earth Thailand 2014.
You know what happens when two friendly ladies get introduced to each other. Both Jamie and Sasi easily broke the ice and immediately clicked as if they have been pals reunited. Of course, it cannot be denied that they will still be fighting each other for the most earth-friendly crown this side of the pageant world. Regardless, it wouldn’t hurt to get an initial ally prior to battlefield encounters. And if they end up being roommates by November, then there’s no need for major adjustments anymore.
And since we’re in the subject of Sasi, check out the left photo above which shows the result of her first make-up transformation under Gouldian. Do you like it? :-)

After the dancing and pasarela
sessions, Gouldian scheduled the ladies of Miss Grand Thailand 2014 – Pla Disdamrong, Sasi Sintawee, First Wang, Ploy Wutthayakorn
and Miss Universe Myanmar 2014 Sharr Eaindra to their make-up (as coordinated by Gouldian’s Gian Quiballo
) classes which they met with much excitement. They had fun experimenting on different looks before finally settling with the one that works for them best and photo-worthy enough to upload online as the result of their first transformation. A styling class with Poi Subijano also followed.
Please take note that the images above are not the final results yet. There will be more to come as the out-of-town pictorials draw near. :-D
Glenn Suba is representing San Luis, Pampanga in Misters of the Philippines 2014
There’s another 20-going-on-21 comer in Misters of the Philippines 2014. And he is officially representing San Luis, Pampanga in the male competition.
A graduate of Pampanga Agricultural College, Glenn Suba compares pageants to the country’s love for basketball. He believes that the Filipinos enjoy seeing their countrymen fighting for the Philippines and bringing back an honor in the process.
Reading his online bio, I discovered that he gives a premium on what matters most to the youth – education. Quoting him, “My advocacy is to shed awareness about the importance of education. Education is really important and I want to be part of a group who can do community service for those people in secluded areas who can’t go to school.“
If you want to support Glenn Suba in his quest to become one of the Misters of the Philippines, cast a fan vote HERE.

When newly-crowned Miss Grand Philippines 2014 Kimberly Karlsson arrived in Puerto Galera for her scheduled homecoming, she was met by the locals with much funfare. The island is abuzz with joy in seeing a new beauty queen in their midst.
John dela Vega’s team also took the opportunity to have Kimberly’s pictorial (left photo) conducted inside the Tamaraw Beach Resort. The final shots will be used as her pre-arrival images for Miss Grand International 2014.
Between now and September 15, our Miss Grand Philippines 2014 will be busy as a bee training and preparing for the international competition in Bangkok.
I’m looking forward to seeing the final look in her send-off to the Land of Smiles. :-)

A Marine Transport graduate is carrying the colors of Aklan in Misters of the Philippines 2014. And his name is Elvin Tiel.
The 20-going-on-21 Filipino seafarer has been entertaining thoughts of joining national male pageants since he was a teen growing up in the province. Now that he is vying for one of the titles, Elvin is extra motivated in improving himself and hopefully becoming a better person in the process.
Advocacy-wise, he goes for education. He states in his bio that “…If we are all educated, we are aware of what we are doing. We could get good careers in the future.“
If you would like to know more about Elvin and his life priorities, read the full text about him HERE. While there, you can also cast a vote for him to become a fan favorite.
Remember the name. Elvin Tiel, 20, Aklan! :-)
