Bb. Pilipinas Tourism 2014 in a painting-like photograph, wearing Rocky Gathercole and shoes by Nere Ku
From the back now, Parul sizzles!
Bb. Pilipinas Tourism 2014 Parul Shah looks like the beautiful apparition of a fallen angel in the photo above. Dressed in a white fantasy creation by Designer Rocky Gathercole and wearing a pair of red boot-like heels custom-made by Nere Ku, she embodies an out-of-the-box character who can very well be the representation of her under-utilized strengths as a Bb. Pilipinas titleholder – crowned but not fielded in competition.
Her breathless beauty notwithstanding, Parul has learned to take things as they come and go. While she could have been sent to any of those several permutations of Tourism-themed pageants abroad, BPCI is not about to compromise her image as a national titleholder by taking part in pageants that do not meet their strict standards.
Maybe it was meant to be. Or maybe something could have been done. Regardless, the reign is over. And life goes on.
This is going to be a big event next month! #Shoesyal
Nere Ku himself
If you love shoes, then Nere Ku
will make you happy. In celebration of his 3rd Year as a shoe designer, he will have a big exhibit and fashion event at the SM Megamall Fashion Hall from June 18-20
where a big group of our top fashion designers (read their names on the image above
) will showcase their fabulous creations with one common denominator – his shoes!
Nereku Manila promises to be a fashion spectacle you can look forward to. And for a change, you won’t be just staring at the models’ attires but also at what they are wearing on their feet.
You don’t want to miss this one! #Shoesyal ;-)
Nere Ku for the modern woman
Nere Ku for the stylish men
is a collaborative effort of various fashion designers, fashion stylists, hair)/make up artists and photographers in the country. Some of the familiar names who will walk the runway include Shamcey Supsup-Lee, Sam Ajdani, Angel Aquino, Tessa Prieto-Valdez, Parul Shah (photo below
) and Eula Valdez. #Shoesyal
May is the month of Flowers. It is also the season for Flores de Mayo and an excellent opportunity for some of our beautiful titleholders and handsome consorts to parade in public in traditional attires that symbolize an essence of the annual tradition.
At the SM Mall of Asia over the weekend, one such activity took place where the likes of Bb. Pilipinas Tourism 2014 Parul Shah, Miss Asean 2014 1st Runner-Up Ferina Ann Juny de Paz, Reyna ng Aliwan 2015 1st Runner-Up Faith Garcia, Mr. Global Philippines Joseph Doruelo and Mr. RP 2015 3rd Runner-Up John Ver Sibangan took centerstage to proudly display the creations of some of our local designers like Edwin Uy, Raphael Louis Gonzales and Renee Salud, as well as be part of the international retail chain’s version of the much-loved activity.
Check out the images in this post. Don’t they just look grand? :-)
Vijita Shah is the younger sister of Bb. Pilipinas Tourism 2014 Parul Shah

Some of you may not be aware that Bb. Pilipinas Tourism 2014 Parul Shah has an equally beautiful younger sister who might – just might
– follow in her pageant footsteps. But not to be too presumptuous, I simply reckoned that Vijita Shah has started showing interest, albeit on a small scale at the moment.
The younger Shah is currently participating in Limgas na Pangasinan 2015 where she is the entry of San Nicolas. While this province-wide competition is not looking at sending its winner to any of the national beauty contests, the experience should give Vijita a taste of how it is to face up to crowds in public and be appreciated for her natural beauty and charm. Of course, the comparison to Parul can’t be helped. But if she eventually decides to turn serious with her efforts and go for the more demanding affairs in Metro Manila, then there’s no choice but to muster enough guts and confidence to live up to her older sister’s pageant fame.

private Balesin Resort to do a sexy swimsuit photoshoot in the island for the BeMyWanderlust
swimwear line of Bb. Pilipinas 2007 Maggie Wilson. And you know how beaches bring out the best in her. She was, quite simply, in her best elements all throughout the pictorial.
Hopefully, she can get all the good breaks now that she is almost done serving her contract for BPCI.
Watch out for the sizzling photographs from Balesin very soon! Or you can also visit the site for some early stills. :-D

Bb. Pilipinas Tourism 2014 Parul Shah
A peek into her latest photoshoot
Now that Bb. Pilipinas Tourism 2014 Parul Shah has already turned over her crown to Ann Lorraine Colis, it’s high time to think about her next career move/s.
According to updates in her Facebook page, Parul has already started building up her portfolio for possible modeling projects that could possibly bring her outside the country and to other places in the region or beyond. She deserves to get her due recognition abroad, and if the route is by way of anything other than pageantry, then so be it.

Another Parul shot - sexiness personified
For now, enjoy her latest photos.
Be prepared for what she may have in store for fans and followers in just a month or two.
With well-intentioned individuals guiding her along the way, I’m pretty sure she is in good hands and will get her due rewards with a little more patience and determination.
I’m looking forward to that. ;-)
Parul, mysteriously now
