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. ;-)
P.S. Click on the links above if you want to see the complete collection.
Five of the 7 Bb. Pilipinas 2014 Queens (L-R): Kris Janson, Bianca Guidotti, MJ Lastimosa, Parul Shah and Hannah Sison visited the offices of the Philippine Daily Inquirer for an interview.
The Queens with their “guyitos”
The other day, our Bb. Pilipinas 2014 Queens (minus Yvethe Santiago who was in Legazpi City and Laura Lehmann who was in school
) trooped to the offices of Philippine Daily Inquirer for a group interview with some of the media reporters and professionals of the well-respected newspaper. It was a fun talk where questions thrown veered away from very serious subject matters and focused more on their individual personalities, lifestyle and plans during their respective reigns. Photo ops galore followed but not after they were given their complimentary “guyito” stuffed toys (the Inquirer’s mascot
The “Inquirers” and the Queens in a photo op.

This is a belated post about the activity of the Bb. Pilipinas 2014 Queens last Fathers’ Day when they personally appeared at the Gateway for ‘All-Out Freedom: A Celebration of Freedom and Father’s Day Back to Back’ followed by the Looking For Juan Art exhibit where the seven ladies got themselves caricatured by guest artists.
By the way, the artworks on exhibit – organized by Center for Art, New Ventures and Sustainable Development (CANVAS) – will run at the Gateway Activity Center up to June 21 (which is today) so you still have time to catch the same.

Aside from taking part in the “Gift of Smiles Philippines” activity for Operation Smile and appearance during the formal opening of the Uniqlo store at Gateway, the Bb. Pilipinas 2014 Queens were also kept busy by various TV guestings during the past month till a couple of weeks back. Watch below.

Will Parul Shah start and end her reign without representing us overseas?
Will BPCI find a beauty competition for Laura Lehmann and Hannah Ruth Sison to join abroad?
The spotlight may not go their direction as often as they would want the attention lingering in their midst. Take for example Bb. Pilipinas Tourism 2014 Parul Shah. With the supposed affiliation of Miss Tourism Queen International with BPCI, she should have already prepared and left for China to take part in the former. But somehow, that prospect doesn’t seem to be shaping up in the immediate horizon (unless fresh developments in the last 24 hours will say otherwise). While there are countless other “Tourism” titles available, the organizers are careful in forging ties with just any foreign group with no impressive track record. It’s enough that MTQI is no longer giving out a prestigious vibe. I’m still keeping my fingers crossed for Parul, though.
And as runners-up, both Laura Lehmann and Hannah Ruth Sison could only hope for the best and pray that something more productive lands on their laps by way of a beauty contest fielding abroad. It could be a double-edged sword should something of the sort takes place, however. It will definitely prevent them from re-joining next year if a formal title is bestowed on their behalf. Just ask Elaine Kay Moll who was declared Miss Supranational Philippines in the middle of serving her 1st Runner-Up status back in 2012.
So how will the rest of their respective Binibini experiences unfold in the coming months ahead? Well, your guesses could just be as good as mine. ;-)
The Bb. Pilipinas 2014 Queens guest on TV5’s Good Morning Club with hosts Martin Andanar (far left) and Lourd de Vera (far right)
Just hours ago, our Bb. Pilipinas 2014 Queens – MJ Lastimosa, Mary Anne Bianca Guidotti, Kris Tiffany Janson, Yvethe Santiago, Parul Shah, Laura Lehmann and Hannah Ruth Sison – woke up very early for a before-sunrise call time at the TV5 studios to guest in the network’s wake-upper show Good Morning Club. Hosts Martin Andanar and Lourd de Vera had a nice time interviewing and chatting with the ladies.
And for a change, it’s cool to see the two runners-up with Parul and Yvethe taking the seats (with MJ, Bianca and Kris standing up) during the 2-on-7. :-)
