  1. Alita: Como Esta? Por que? No entiendes? Que barbaridad!

    Having said that, she nailed this shot. Elegance and Class personified.

    For a funky, not so common Philippine national costume, Dindi.

    Kudos to Bessie and Cherry Veric for thinking out of the box with regards to the natcos presentation!

  2. It’s Prongoso vs. Malpaya for me😃
    Kahit sino sa kanilang dalawa puedeng manalo.
    Pero kung ako papilin, mas gusto ko ang kay Prongoso for its simplicity and message. Pero kung sa mapangahas na design ay napakaganda ng gown ni Malpaya 😃
    Malpaya or Prongoso will win😃
    Sana Tie na lng😉

  3. Just visited a latin beauty page. A pic of Pia’s arrival in the Phils was posted. Mga colombians “poor Pia” daw quasi she’s only been travelling to the Phils. But Paulina didn’t even travel that much either… Wala daw mga projects si Pia unlike Ariadna. Umm heller, Pia is MU2015, that’s her main priority. Ariadna doesn’t have the same obligations.. So she can do a shit ton of projects. Plus MU is under a new organization na, so maybe they don’t have as much money anymore kaya hindi masyadong nagtratravel si Pia. Whatever. One thing is for sure though, Pia is the most famous MU ever.

    • Pia went to Indonesia and Canada aside from travelling all over the US and the Philippines… She will be traveling some more for sure….

    • Not really. IMG/WME is a big and wealthy multinational organization if you look it up.

  4. Nicole Cordoves pang Miss U pero medyo maliit hinaharap.. sergury lang katapat… and her name is not ending in A… She cant be Miss International dahil galit ang Japan sa China ngayon…

    Nichole Manalo- She has the body for MU but waley ang kanyang comskills… Miss I sya pwede since pwede memorized? But would BPCI choose a 26 year old for MI?…

    Apriel Smith- hindi rin A pero pang MU ang beauty and brains… parang medyo kulang sa hinaharap pero pwede na… surgery lang katapat.. MI pwedeng pwede din.. problem is ang beauty standards ng mga Pinoy.. Im sure ang BPCI hindi papanalunin sya dahil ang masa mapanglait sa negra… paano na product sponsors?

    Angelique- hinfi A pero pwedeng pang MU or any crown… kulang lang sa trainning.. pulutika lang din ang hadlang para makauwi ng crown.

    Gigante- mukhang pungok… pero pag dinaan sa talino kaya… problem is bashing dahil sa before and after pics…

    Dindi- pang MU ang katawan… kulang lang ng comskills… kung kaya isingit sa Supra pwede pero bka maubusan sya ng crown yun lang.

    Kylie- medyo kulang din sa comskills and hinaharap pero sya parin isa sa pinaka maganda… She can win any of the top crowns or at least Supra…

    Maxene- asa kanya na ang lahat…. pati panfalan pasok sa banga… tagisan nalang ng talino sa pagitan nya Apriel, Nicole and Angelique…

    Angelica Alita- pinaka magandang mukha kulang lang sa height at fitness ng katawan… yung katawan mababago pero ang height?… may ibubuga nman sa comskills…

    • Kylie actually has great comm skills, where did you base your statement C2F?? Search for the ambush question by her fans in youtube and/or read her tweets, you’ll know what i mean. 😉😉😉

      • Yes, she can speak in English and I know that…. but… I want to see an interview where she really proves herself worthy of the Miss Universe crown.

  5. I am sorry pero nilamon ng natco si Alita.
    It was wrongly designed for her.
    I’d go for Prongoso for elegance
    Bartolome for simplicity and cleanliness in execution
    Malpaya for Royalty… yes ROYALTY dahlinnn

  6. Alita, Paula (Told you she’s a threat), and Dindi para ditetch. Alita’s expensive aura and face ehh yung natural hindi yung through poses and movements lang, hindi forced kung baga. Paula is sleek and clean pero sultry. Dindi, amazona pak!

  7. Ok yung kay Bessie Besana…pero bakit ganun pag wala yung pang taas na panuelo eh parang gown sya on its own!!! Ganun ba talaga ang cut ng terno de meztiza…gown na pinatungan lang ng panuelo? Though maganda talaga ang dating…modern..just that naisip ko lang ganun na ba talaga…ordinary gown lang tapos papatungan ng panuelo para maging national costume na?

    Just my thoughts…i will go for Frederick Peralta, Dindi Pajares costume and yung terno na may bamboo design.

  8. In all fairness to Paula and Alita, ang expensive ng dating ng aura nila. 🙂 But Dindi is seriously giving me Dayana Mendoza vibes – fun, flirty and sexy. Lamonera ang datingan ni Ate. 🙂

  9. I am wondering, ano kaya ang reaction ni Alfredo Barraza sa mga Filipino designed national costumes na ito? Doon pa lang sa national costume na isinuot ni Pia sa Miss Universe, siguro pahiyang-pahiya na s’ya dun.

  10. Lakas maka Gloria Romero ni sissy ang ganda ng hem and sleeve details ng kay Bessie. Lahat sila ang gaganda. Pero yung terno ni Malpaya….super cute. Unexpected color. Linis ng sparkles. I love sparkles!!!!!

      • ‘Yung kay Paula kase, Laila, sobrang elegant ng pagkagawa tapos binagayan pa ng styling niya. Paula and her costume complement each other, ‘yun actually ‘yun. Kaya malakas ang feeling ko na s’ya ang mananalo sa National Costume. Alam mo naman ang taste ni SMA, she goes with elegance. She doesn’t care kung ano ang history ng costume or intricacy ng design and she has been stuck with ternos, Maria Claras, or Filipinianas. Kung sa Binibining Pilipinas, modesty and elegance ang batayan sa Natcos, sa Miss Universe naman flamboyance ang hanap.

  11. Actually based sa video and motion:

    Ang bet ko tlga natcos kay malpaya

    pero dito sa photoshoot na eto parang di nakita ang detalyado ng natcos niya natabunan dapat frontal ang pagkuha ng pic hindi side view.

    next bet ko Dindi, i love it

    also maria prongoso and paula…. angela malinis tingnan ang natcos niya

    basta either dindi or malpaya ang mananalong natcos…

    • True! I love Malpaya’s terno. kaya lang sad natakpan ang details! 😦

  12. I love these portraits! They’re so high-quality. I can easily envision Jennyline’s or Paula Rich’s as portraits of royalty or heads of state. Angelica’s looked very Philippine Tatler. Manlangit did so well in directing this shoot! The way he posed the girls showed off the best parts of each costume. Even the presentation (the typography!) is very alta. It makes me forgive the awkward we-shot-this-from-the-backstage vibe going on. Well done, BPCI. It doesn’t get any classier than this.

  13. If were gonna stick with the typical maria clara, I would say Prongoso’s costume is the most elegant one. But if we’re steering away from that, I would go for Dindi’s costume!

  14. It’s Dindi’s or Paula Rich’s. But, I love Bessie Besana’s creation here.

  15. wow. level up talag ang BPCI!!! hahaha

    Sa photos na to,

    Bessie Besana’s mestiza terno stood out! mukhang mamahalin, mukhang yayamanin. mukhang alta nung sinaunang panahon! Maganda naman in motion, mas maganda lang sa photo. Love this for MU!

    Cherry Veric – I love it. ganda ni Dindi. isa na rin siya sa bet ko for MUP. although sana mas malalaki ang feathers sa headdress. but overall, I love Dindi’s projection at ang kulang nag pop up bigla from dark backrgound. Also love this for MU!

    Paula Bartolome – MADAM! Very elegant. simple pero ang lakas ng dating! i love the fitting and her pag emote sa camera!

    Maria Lina – Mas bet ko ung terno niya sa malapitan. I mean di ko makita ang details. her photo is bordering to bride’s photoshoot. lol sorry. but the terno is gorgeous!

    Malpaya – One of my fave!nung napanood ko sa video, ang ganda pala talaga ng terno na ito in motion. naalala ko ung terno ni Venus Raj noon, yung white na may something na mga nakalaylay din.

    Naisip ko lang, siguro kaya sila pumili ng top 6 national costume is that BPCI is now having 6 titles at stake. So if iisipin niyo, ung mananalo na best in NatCos is for MUP then next is MI and so on. Sana yung kay Dindi or kay Bessie ang manalo. Yung kay Paula bagay for MI e. malinis, elegante, mala manika ang dating.

    On still pic, Bessie Bedana’s creation is magnificent. However, it doesn’t look equally magnificent in motion. Just saying…

    • I think its because it needs to be tighter on the knees and fuller on the hem to create a more curvaceous fish-tail serpentina look… but its not bad.. For a new designer, i think he did great…

      • I think so, too. The gown should hug the curves from bust down to the knee and the blouse should show the beauty of the model’s shoulder. 😋😝😜

      • The panuelo’s purpose is actualy to emphasize the decolatage and soften the angle of the shoulders for a more feminine look…. To expose more skin on the upper chest, it would need a more structured fabric which would lessen the comfort and breathability of the whole ensemble.. or they could do it old school where they actually stiffen the panuelo or collar panels with cornstarch back in the day when it was the height of fashion… No wonder Maria Clara was so prim and proper… she can hardly move…

  17. Wow, Angelica Alita nailed this shot! And Bessie did a great job on the pattern-making and tailoring… kudos!!!
