It will all happen at the SM MOA Arena on October 12, 2014.

Trust Ms. Cory Quirino to fill the SM Mall of Asia Arena for the Coronation Night of Miss World Philippines 2014 on October 12. While the Official Candidates have not yet been announced – let alone screened – she will definitely undertake to make this year her biggest production for the nationals. With the outgoing titleholder being Miss World 2013 Megan Young, there is simply no room for a ho-hum conduct of the finals.
And with GMA-7’s help, the pageant will definitely get a boost in terms of scope and coverage. Do I see Mikael Daez (Megan’s rumored boyfriend) solo-hosting? I doubt it, but if he is joined by Tom Rodriguez and Carla Abellana, why not?
Watch out for my coverage of Miss World Philippines 2014 starting very soon! :-D
The Atelier Versace sketch of Angelina’s wedding gown

Who doesn’t like getting that intimate wedding at Château Miraval
in the South of France?
I would. In a heartbeat. But only if he is either a Thai-Belgian actor like Chaiyapol “New” Poupart or an Irish food writer like Donal Skehan. ;-)
Seriously now, the Atelier Versace gown Angelina Jolie wore in her secret wedding with Brad Pitt is absolutely divine. For me, simplicity is an effortless standout. There is always something positive to be said about a creation that doesn’t take away too much from the natural beauty of the wearer.
While that may not be followed in the world of pageantry as a rule, there will always be that one delegate whose minimalist formal attires will take our breath away.
Personally, one of my all-time favorites is the Francis Libiran gown Megan Young wore in Bali when she was crowned Miss World 2013. That coral pink number may not be anyone’s idea of a showstopper, but it certainly helped make our Queen become the most outstanding belle of the night.
Can you name me your idea of simple elegance, dear readers? :-)
MW2013 Megan Young with Miss Mundo de Puerto Rico 2013 Nadya Lee Torres
Megan with the Miss Mundo de Puerto Rico 2014 Candidates
Over the weekend, Miss World 2013 Megan Young was in San Juan, Puerto Rico to help judge the Beach Beauty and Top Model competitions of Miss Mundo de Puerto Rico 2014. She would have stayed on till after 13th to take part in the finals of the same, but schedule conflicts prevented her from helping crown its next Miss World representative. At the very least, she was able to meet up and spend time with Nadya Lee Torres who was her fellow delegate in Bali last year.
By the way, did you know that our Queen had an appendectomy earlier in the month? She had to miss a previous engagement in Alberta because of the minor surgery. But ever the trouper that she is, the succeeding travels were handled as planned and she was up and running in no time at all. The pictures in Puerto Rico are proof positive that she is A-okay now.
Take it easy, Megan! :-)
Our Queen Megan will be going to San Juan to grace the Miss World Puerto Rico 2014 finals.
Continuing with her Miss World duties and travel diaries, Miss World 2013 Megan Young just left New York for San Juan, Puerto Rico where she will be a guest of honor in the Miss World Puerto Rico 2014 finals as well as help crown the winner. This will also be her perfect opportunity to reunite with their rep last year – Nadya Lee Torres – as well as to check out the ongoing BWAP project being conducted.
Hopefully, our Queen Megan will start preparing for her trip to Manila for Miss World Philippines 2014. Her tight schedule is now being finalized to make sure that she is present during the entire pre-pageant period of our nationals up to the time she crowns her successor here. ;-)

The TV spots are running in full over at GMA-7 on a regular basis. In fact, the above video can be seen at least once in every primetime program of the network, plus a healthy frequency during the highly-rated afternoon soaps.
This only means that Miss World Philippines 2014 will go on full swing mode next month. The exact finals date has not yet been finalized, but it will definitely air either last week of August or very early September.
And Miss World 2013 Megan Young is visibly excited to find out who will vie for the national crown she has beautifully held for one year.
Your blogger will definitely cover the whole nine yards. Stay stuck for all the highlights, sidelights and spotlights of the competition. ;-)

Nicklas Pedersen has now internalized his role as Mr. World 2014. Late last month, he was still battling with himself on how to get into the responsibility and meet everyone’s expectations. But it really didn’t take him too long to settle in. This Danish hottie dreamt of acting in movies and becoming a celebrity. So the glamour of being the World’s Most Desirable Man should now be second skin. Aside from traveling with Miss World 2013 Megan Young, he is also making his own personal appearances. And by the time Miss World 2014 has been set in motion in London, expect more of him to show up in the pageant activities. ;-)
Miss World 2013 Megan Young with Miss World USA 2014 Elizabeth Safrit (right)
There is a new Miss World United States 2014. And she is not Miss USA 2014 1st Runner-Up Audra Mari of North Dakota. The reigning Miss North Carolina United States has been crowned by Miss World 2013 Megan Young as the US representative to Miss World 2014 in London come December.
The 21 year-old Political Science graduate from the University of South Carolina is the winner of the Miss United States 2014 Pageant held in Washington, D.C. And the girl is not just passionate about pageants. She also started a Rock the Vote initiative to spread the word about voter registration for young people. While the cause may not be the kind Miss World Organization is always impressed with, I am certain that her work with teenagers and the youth could be translated to a beautiful purpose that she can max to the fullest in the international competition.
For now, I can only wish Elizabeth the best of luck in Miss World 2014. :-)
