#Pasabog from #Binibini40 Roberta Tamondong:
THE BINIBINING PILIPINAS & ITS CROWNS | MISS INTERNATIONAL
Did you know that the first Miss International title holder is Madame Stella Marquez-Araneta, the chairman of Binibining Pilipinas Organization? And today, she deserves the spotlight.
MARÍA STELLA MÁRQUEZ-ARANETA,
the First Miss International Title Holder
At age 23, she competed in the first Miss International pageant held in Long Beach, California in 1960, becoming the first Miss International, and also the first Latin American titleholder in that line of pageants.
Miss International is a Japanese-based international beauty pageant organized by The International Culture Association. The pageant advocacy is to achieve a world where women can live with positivity, inner strength and individuality. The slogan of Miss International is to “correct understanding of Japan in the international community” and “the realization of world peace through mutual understanding”. The Miss International Organization has opened doors to 6 Filipinas, making Philippines the second country to win the most number of Miss International titles.
Today, Mrs. Araneta is working as the chairman of the Binibining Pilipinas Charities Incorporated for more than 5 decades. BPCI is the organization that gave the Philippines pride and honor in the world of pageantry.

This “tribute” is just wrong on so many levels.
OMG. I hope this will not set a trend.
I don’t know what is worse : a girl posting photos channeling Jonas Gafud or another one channeling Arnold Vegafaria. Char!
The photos above while admirable is not giving me Stella Marquez vibes, but more Stella Suarez! Lol.
Magagalit si Nawat dito kaya dapat di siya sa MGI.
Well birdies fr Araneta said Tamondong is a favorite along w Lakrini and Basiano as in halata
Sip sip but brilliant move. Still have to see a pasilip appearance of Mdme Stella. No sighting of her in the last 3 years from the start of the pandemic. Has she been relegating her chairwoman powers to other people in the Araneta grp or is she hands on with the functions behind the scenes?
Great strategy.. Suck up to the owner of the pageant… Tomondong’s eyes are definitely on the biggest prize… I wonder what Borromeo, Fernandez and Bassiano would do to beat this uber grand gesture..
Very nice tribute and timely release to generate some noise ahead of the sprint to the finish.
Did BBP asked for this? However well intended, unsolicited gestures can be construed as presumptuous.
Her own call, DanDan
It’s ballsy, hopefully it works to her advantage 🙂
This is a brilliant idea and a very good strategy.
She is very lovely
But this is a brilliant maneuver for those handling her. It would definitely make Madame and her ilk sit up, notice and consider her for the MI pageant
Channeling her inner Stella Marquez would have been right on the money had she worn a less provocative swimsuit. Not like this where her a spillage of melons is about to happen
I find it tastefully done maybe because the pose is not provocative in any way.
Love her on these photos.
It exudes vulnerability that reminds me of Marilyn Monroe
