MJ doing her signature walk onstage
During the People Asia Magazine Women of Style and Substance Awards held at the Sofitel Philippine Plaza Hotel, Miss Universe Philippines 2014 Mary Jean “MJ” Lastimosa were among the awardees alongside Miss International 2013 Bea Rose Santiago, Bb. Pilipinas International 2014 Mary Anne Bianca Guidotti and Bb. Pilipinas Supranational 2014 Yvethe Marie Santiago.
Our MJ was cornered by a Philippine Star representative for a 4-minute interview backstage. And in the video below, you can see (and hear) how she feels about being the country’s Miss Universe bet. You will also get to know who her style inspiration is.

Ok, troops, time to fill this thread up. The comments/replies on the other post about MJ’s latest make-up is getting too long. ;-)

Jean Marie’s headshot for Miss World Philippines 2014
In the case of tall and shapely Jean Marie Feliciano
, she is striking while the iron is hot, so to speak.
After taking part in Miss Grand Philippines 2014 (where she made the Top 10 and almost snatched a Top 3 spot), she immediately decided to show up for Miss World Philippines 2014 during the screenings at Raven Boutique Club.
This Ilocana from La Union is hopeful that whatever she learned from John dela Vega’s pageant will be put to good use here. After all, she won Best in Swimsuit during the Miss Grand Philippines 2014 finals. That should amount to something in Miss World Philippines.

Good luck to you, Jean Marie Feliciano! ;-)
Miss World New Zealand 2014 Arielle Garciano (right) and Ms. Cory Quirino of MWP
The visiting Miss World New Zealand 2014 Arielle Garciano was so happy that she got the opportunity to meet Ms. Cory Quirino shortly after her arrival in Manila. Her Facebook page status has the following update:
“My body is still adjusting to the time difference and the hours spent flying from Christchurch to Auckland to Sydney and to Manila. However, my Day 1 has been really awesome especially when I met this amazing author, television and radio host – Miss Cory Quirino.
Miss Quirino owns the exclusive license and the national director of Miss World Organisation in the Philippines. Aside from providing opportunities for beautiful women to endeavor their passions, she’s also an active council member of the Philippine Red Cross.
Indeed a woman with a purpose! A true survivor and inspiration!”

So why is Arielle in town? My guess is that she will be filming some important footage for her BWAP (Beauty With A Purpose) Project which involves a young girl needing a life-saving plastic surgery.
Any other essential item on the agenda remains undisclosed for now. ;-)
The Maritim Sharm el-Sheikh International Congress Center will be the venue of the Miss Intercontinental 2014 finals on October 25, 2014
The ladies will be staying at the 5-star Le Royal Holiday Resort Sharm el-Sheikh
As I have mentioned in a previous post
, Miss Intercontinental 2014 will be jointly hosted by Jordan and Egypt – Tala Bay and Sharm el-Sheikh in particular.
Entry and exit points will remain in Amman. Important filming and initial pre-pageant activities will take place in Aqaba Tala Bay. From there, the candidates will move on to Sharm el-Sheikh (in the South Sinai Governorate of Egypt and on the far end of the Gulf of Aqaba).
Bb. Pilipinas Intercontinental 2014 Kris Tiffany Janson
Here, they will be staying at the plush Le Royal Holiday Resort Sharm el-Sheikh
for the remainder of the competition all the way to the finals to be held at the Maritim Sharm el-Shiekh International Congress Center
– considered as one of the biggest, most advanced and most successful congress venues in the Middle East.
It will definitely be quite the interesting beauty pageant experience for all the contenders, especially our very own Bb. Pilipinas-Intercontinental 2014 Kris Tiffany Janson who will attempt to win the Philippines’ first Miss Intercontinental crown.
Watch out for the send-off coverage of our bet tomorrow evening. ;-)
Miss World 2013 Megan Young for Palmolive Naturals
Our Miss World 2013 Megan Young is the new Palmolive Girl. And she is loving every minute of it.
Megan’s latest product TVC endorsement was launched recently and the title of this post fits her perfectly – the best hair ever for the best Miss World ever. And no, this is not a paid post for Palmolive Naturals Conditioner.
Watch the video of the commercial below, plus a second one that promotes the slumbook she started for the young users of the hair care brand.

Chritine Balaguer and her aerial yoga.
At the Eclipse Bar of Solaire Resort and Casino, the Talent Show of Miss World Philippines 2014 was held with the ladies showing off their skills outside of plain beauty and catwalk displays.
There were those who sang. Another big group who individually danced. Two of them played magicians. And one deaf risk-taker performed aerial yoga to the delight of the audience.
Christine Balaguer was the one who did the suspended acrobatics. Valerie Weigmann and Jean Marie Feliciano performed magic tricks. The rest either swayed to the groove of different music genres or exhibited their vocal chops in varying degrees of acceptability.
Who won Miss Talent? We’ll find out on October 12. ;-)
But if you ask me, it could be a toss between #21 Jean Marie Feliciano who delivered a smooth string of magic tricks and #4 Priscilla Kimberly dela Cruz with her nicely choreographed and executed interpretative dance number.

Ibiza Condo RCA in Bangkok
Below is the video of where Miss Grand International 2013 Janelee Chaparro resided in Bangkok, Thailand during parts of her reign when she is required to be in the Land of Smiles. It is the Ibiza Condominium RCA
located in Phetchaburi 47 Yaek 3-4, Bang Kapi, Huai Khwang.
Since Janelee will vacate the unit after crowning her successor on October 7, Miss Grand International 2014 will be moving in a week’s time from the date and have the place to herself for one full year.
What I would do to have my own place there! ;-)
