Our 2014 Bb. Pilipinas Queens - MJ, Kris, Bianca, Yvethe and Parul - as photographed by Bruce Casanova
The Queens clowning for the camera
When Photographer Bruce Casanova uploaded the five-in-one portrait (see above
) of our Bb. Pilipinas 2014 Queens, I got inspired once more to come up with this short Sunday feature on who among them will be the best ever in this batch.
Without a doubt, Miss Universe Philippines 2014 Mary Jean ‘MJ’ Lastimosa could be it if she wins our 3rd Miss Universe crown. Bb. Pilipinas International 2014 Mary Anne Bianca Guidotti and Bb. Pilipinas Supranational 2014 Yvethe Marie Santiago are also in the running if they achieve the rare back-to-back wins in Tokyo and Krynica-Zdrój, respectively. And not to be outdone, Bb. Pilipinas Intercontinental 2014 Kris Tiffany Janson can also pull some weight if she nails the country’s first victory in Jordan. I really wish I could say something about Parul at this point. But the lack of clarity regarding a pageant assignment leaves me no choice but to simply wish that something is in the offing for her.

In the end, I want 2014 to be the best group of Bb. Pilipinas winners ever – much better than their predecessors.
Is that too much to ask, dear readers? ;-)

The ladies doing some dance moves with the Toka-Toka mascot
Last Monday, the Bb. Pilipinas 2014 Queens graced the launching and educational gallery opening of Manila Water’s Toka-Toka Water Advocacy at the Araneta Center. The ladies wholeheartedly obliged to the appearance and support because its objective is to “…ensure cleaner and safer rivers in Metro Manila, particularly the Marikina, Pasig and San Juan rivers.
As further explanation of the campaign, “Toka-Toka stems from the root word “Toka” means to share and commit.
TokaToka has four “ownable” acts where an individual or institution can contribute as his or its “toka” (share) namely: proper disposal of garbage; desludging of septic tanks; connecting to Manila Water’s sewer network; and supporting the company’s community-based sanitation and used-water projects.“

Below is a behind-the-scenes video of the photoshoot of the Bb. Pilipinas 2014 Queens – MJ, Bianca, Kris, Yvethe and Parul – for Sense&Style Magazine’s August 2014 issue. It’s really a nice watch. Enjoy! :-D

Our Bb. Pilipinas 2014 Queens – MJ Lastimosa, Bianca Guidotti, Kris Janson, Yvethe Santiago, Parul Shah and Hannah Ruth Sison – took the time to attend the Love Yourself Foundation
seminar on HIV/AIDS Awareness so as to further their knowledge about the same and, in the process – help spread the word as well as the support system that the organization
can provide to those diagnosed with the disease.
By the way, if you want to help the project, be a Volunteer by signing up HERE. Dare. Care. Share. :-)
The Bb. Pilipinas 2014 Queens on the Body Issue of Sense & Style
Mr. World Philippines 2015 Sam Ajdani on the inside pages
I never imagined this magazine cover to be just their first. But indeed it is. The August 2014 issue of Sense & Style has our five (5) Bb. Pilipinas 2014 Queens – MJ Lastimosa, Bianca Guidotti, Kris Janson, Yvethe Santiago and Parul Shah – gracing the glossy top, as well as filling in a few of the inside pages where they reveal some of their best beauty secrets.
But not to be outdone, Mr. World Philippines 2015 Sam Ajdani occupies fourteen (14) pages of his ‘glorious’ photoshoot. Hmmm…
Anyways, grab a copy of Sense & Style in your favorite magazine stands and/or bookstore now. It could run out fast! ;-)

During the recently-concluded International Franchise Expo 2014 at the SMX Convention Center, the Araneta Center booth definitely had the most gorgeous representatives with the Bb. Pilipinas 2014 Queens taking time out from their busy schedules to man the space for a good hour or two. And what a refreshing sight it must have been to see these ladies effortlessly promoting Araneta Center. ;-)
Next to Elie Saab, Zuhair Murad is my favorite fashion designer. And since he just unveiled his latest, let’s do some sort of a wishful thinking gown assignment if you will.
Which of the six dazzling creations below – all part of his Haute Couture Fall 2014 collection – will you select for Miss Universe Philippines 2014 MJ Lastimosa, Bb. Pilipinas International 2014 Mary Anne Bianca Guidotti, Bb. Pilipinas Intercontinental 2014 Kris Tiffany Janson, Bb. Pilipinas Supranational 2014 Yvethe Marie Santiago, Bb. Pilipinas Tourism 2014 Parul Shah and Miss Philippines Earth 2014 Jamie Herrell?
Assign a Zuhair Murad gown to our Queens.
If you ask my choices, then they are already numbered accordingly, with #1 for MJ, #2 for Bianca, #3 for Kris, #4 for Yvethe, #5 for Parul and #6 for Jamie. I took into consideration the level of sexiness in each piece and how the cuts will most likely compliment their respective competitions and the host cities (for most) where the pageants will be held.
I’m sure some of you will have differing opinions on which gown should be worn by who. So indulge me with this one, dear readers. ;-)
