Now that you have seen the 30 Official Candidates of Bb. Pilipinas 2012 in their elegant National Costumes, it is time to log in your Top 3 choices – one winner, 2nd place and 3rd place.
Let me start by posting mine.
In third place, wearing a creation that highlights the use of indigenous materials weaved in fine detail and evoking the true beauty of the Philippine terno is candidate #27 Golda Mae Soller!
In second place, garbed in an edgy version of the Philippine terno that not only accentuates the shapes and curves of the wearer, but also shows some stylish deconstruction of the traditional costume is candidate #18 Janine Tugonon!
And lastly, my winner of the National Costume Competition is lavishly attired in a tribal-inspired number that exudes the joyous spirit of the islands, adding more zest to the line ‘It’s More Fun in the Philippines’ and carried with such an exacting flair for maximum effect…here’s candidate #8 Nicole Schmitz!
My honorable mentions would be the simple sophistication of an all-white Filipiniana worn by #28 Marie Irisha Arcenas and the eye-catching – albeit verging on the busy side – interpretation of the terno presented by #7 Patricia Lae Ejercitado.
Who are your winners?
