Binibini fans can get up close with their favorite 2023 candidates via the Binibining Pilipinas Glam Shot Photo Exhibit at the Gateway Mall Activity Area in Araneta City.
Officially opened to the public on April 12, the traditional Binibini photo exhibit showcases the 2023 batch in 7-feet portraits shot by official lensmen Raymond Saldaña and Owen Reyes. Each glam look was styled by Patrick Henry Mergano and Macky Combe, and paired with the ingenious designs by Odelon Simpao and Allan Laserna.
A ceremonial ribbon-cutting was attended by Binibining Pilipinas Charities Inc (PBCI) Executive Committee member and trustee Irene Jose, BPCI Head Gines Enriquez, Araneta City AVP for Marketing Marjorie Go, swimsuit provider Justine Aliman, Saldaña, Reyes, Mergano, Combe, Laserna, and the 2023 candidates.
BPCI Chairperson Stella Marquez-Araneta made a special appearance at the event. Binibining Pilipinas Grand International 2022 Roberta Tamondong hosted the mini program.
After the program, the candidates headed to the Gateway Cineplex to have a relaxing time and support the 1st Summer Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF).
The exhibit is open for public viewing at the Gateway Mall Activity Area until April 14, at the Gateway Cineplex Lobby from April 15 to 19, then at other Araneta City malls until the Grand Coronation Night.
Grabenh hina ng mga batch .
Bb. Pilipinas is still the gold standard in pageants. In training, it used to be A&Q but I think they are losing spark.
In a totally unrelated topic,
Congratulations to Eva Patalinjug for passing the Bar. Life works in mysterious ways indeed. Not even getting a decent placement in MGI a few years ago must have been an embarrassing chapter of your life — only to find out that the universe is redirecting you to a greater path many years later.
So many pretty faces but Standouts are Hipolito and Lakrini
Hipolito is giving me Miriam Quiambao vibe!
Anonymous. Strongly agree
Beautiful portraits. I like the cleaner with flowers.
Dapat yung photo shoot na walang make up para mag ka alaman na kung sino yung budol oh yung hindi.
sis Ivan, walang ganon…hayaan na natin ha…kahit naman kasi yung mga past winners since the beginning of BBP needed talaga ang make up. <3<3<3
This is where I admired the works of the best photographer Raymond Saldaña. He captured through the lense the inner the soul of the lovely ladies. He always makes the photos of candidates looking so classy and expensive. Way to go Raymond.
I am sorry but those photos are tacky! I thought mga manok at palaspas sila. Lol. Instead of focusing on their faces, we are distracted by those props. And those soft filters … mukha silang mga drawing na lang.
Whoever thought of this concept as “glamour shots” should be flogged with chicken feathers and palm leaves until he / she / it is blue in the face. Lol.
Why do I get the feeling that 2023 pageants in the Philippines have regressed to 1980s?
Wa ka malibat, bayota ka? Manok ug lukay gyuy tan-aw nimo ana nila? Ka-klaro anang ilang mga dagway !!! Basta lang gyud maka comment, kay aron ingnon nga expert on beauty ? Panamin oy … kay mitalipsay na nang imong panan-aw, bayooootch !!! Attention: Raymond Saldaña, Owen Reyes, Patrick Henry Mergano, Macky Combe, Odelon Simpao and Allan Laserna … angay kuno mong latoson hangtud ma-blue na mo sa mga bun-og. The temerity to say that !!! Ikaw na gyud, Tomasa … ang rayna sa tanang nagkagidlay !!!
Sorry. I don’t talk to Aliens. Lol.
