Jessica Rose McEwen, Miss World Philippines 2015 Official Candidate by Lito Caleon
Jessica during Mutya ng Pilipinas
Here’s another crossover beauty from Mutya ng Pilipinas 2015 where she represented Central Luzon and made it to the Top 10 finalists. Jessica Rose McEwen has successfully made it as Miss World Philippines 2015 Official Candidate. She is with Kagandahang Flores.
This 18 year-old lass possesses a pair of green-greyish eyes that mesmerizes any onlooker who will get to look at her winsome face and stance. One might ask her ethnicity. Well, this nature lover is half-Filipino, half-Kiwi who originated from Whangarei but moved to Angeles City, Pampanga where she majored in Journalism at the Angeles University Foundation. She speaks Kapampangan, aside from being fluent in English, Maori and Tagalog.
Let’s follow Jessica Rose’s journey in Miss World Philippines 2015! :-)

Miss World Philippines 2015 Official Candidate Kiara Giel Gregorio
Kiara by Lito Caleon
Kiara Giel Gregorio will be remembered by many as the representative of the Filipino Community of UK during Mutya ng Pilipinas 2015 which finished just last August. Not wanting to waste the pageant opportunities available immediately after, she trained with Kagandahang Flores and polished herself even more in preparation for Miss World Philippines 2015 where she is now an Official Candidate.
This London-based 18 year-old who stands just a tad shy of 5’7″ is more confident than ever. She wants to do better than her Mutya efforts. And by the looks of it, she has bloomed into a more competitive player now. Will her efforts be rewarded with a good placement come October 18, or can she jack it up even more with the crown itself?
Let’s all wish Kiara Giel Gregorio the best in MWP2015! :-)
Miss World Philippines 2015 Official Candidate Emma Mary Tiglao
Something has definitely changed. And it’s looking good in my eyes. Emma Mary Tiglao is back in the pageant scene, and Miss World Philippines 2015 is where we can now see her new transformation. The face is more ravishing, and in the expert hands of Kagandahang Flores (including HD Make-up Artist Gio Lazaro Flores), she has a clearly more defined beauty that has effectively made her one of the top contenders in this year’s derby. In fact, I just couldn’t stop staring at her face now.
Emma is waging a beauty war that puts her on the lead charge of her camp. And she is very likely to be on a collission course with co-candidates Hillarie Danielle Parungao (formerly with KF), Cassandra Naidas and Mia Hernandez Howell.
How are you sizing up Emma’s chances compared to how she competed in Bb. Pilipinas 2014? I really think she has what it takes to finally nail KF’s very first Miss World Philippines victory. :-)

Mia Hernandez Howell, Miss World Philippines 2015 Official Candidate by Lito Caleon
One look at Mia Hernandez Howell’s pictures in this post and you would easily ask why she was not presented this way during Bb. Pilipinas 2015 last March. Because from where I am looking at, she could have been a major contender back then. Her peg for Miss World Philippines 2015 is now more elegant and sophisticated. Her high definition make-up more outstanding. And her overall stance more commanding. The walk and presentation has definitely improved by leaps and bounds.
I can safely say at this point that the former national fencer is now a true-blue pageant fighter who can give the other early favorites a good touche’ for the money. I am interested in seeing more of her, especially with what has been shown as the new and improved version during Final Screening.
Watch out for Mia. This girl has the clear fighting spirit to give Miss World Philippines 2015 a very good fight.
What say you, dear readers? ;-)

Miss World Philippines 2015 Official Candidate Vianca Louise Marcelo by Lito Caleon
There is a Bulakenya in the ongoing Miss World Philippines 2015, and she is an entry of Kagandahang Flores (KF). She is Vianca Louise Marcelo of Malolos, Bulacan, who you will remember as the Singkaban Festival Queen of Reyna ng Aliwan 2015.
Vianca belongs to Jaja Model Management where she was discovered for the beauty competition. A student of De La Salle-Saint Benilde, she is entering the pageant with high hopes that previous related experiences will hold her in good stead, aside from the polishing she got from the experts at KF.
Since Vianca and I come from the same province, my hope is that she does well in the same. Despite the stiff roster, she will give her personal best to do Bulacan proud.
Bring it on, Vianca Louise Marcelo! :-)

Interestingly enough, the top two titles of Mutya ng Pilipinas 2015 were ‘somehow split’ by the country’s top beauty camps. Mutya ng Pilipinas Asia-Pacific International 2015 is Leren Mae Bautista of Laguna who has been ‘fleetingly guided’ by Aces&Queens but officially trained and managed by Ghune Katigbak (of Ara Arida fame
). Mutya ng Pilipinas Tourism International 2015 went to Janela Joy Cuaton of Doha, Qatar who is a product of Kagandahang Flores. The third title, a special one, was awarded to Nina Robertson of the Filipino Community of Australia. She is Mutya ng Pilipinas Overseas Communities 2015.
Julee Bourgoin of Cagayan de Oro City was named 1st Runner Up, with Brenna Cassandra getting Gamboa 2nd Runner-Up.
Congratulations, ladies! :-)

Rodgil Flores: The Main Man behind Kagandahang Flores
Rodgil (in red shirt) doing what he does best
I thought of doing a Sunday Senti Special on Rodgil Flores today after the “Tiis-Ganda
” post I featured a week ago. Let’s focus on the man behind Kagandahang Flores himself.
Below are the videos – exactly a year old – where he guested on the ‘Success Secrets’ program of DZRH Radio Television. Do watch both so you can get an idea of the successful beauty queen maker’s humble beginnings, and how a Chemical Engineer transformed himself into the uber successful pageant personality he is today. ;-)
