Behold your #Binibini35 Micca Rosal of Agoncillo, Batangas in her Bb. Pilipinas National Costume created by Chico Estiva:
My national costume is called MARY LOVE. This was made to pay tribute to our Mother Mary who has been our rock amidst the recent taal volcano eruption. We chose to wear something that will signify the strength and hope of all Batanguenos especially people of Agoncillo who was greatly affected by the recent calamity.
I carry with me the Holy Rosary same with what most of the families have carried during the afternoon of January 12. It was our weapon, our shield and our rock.
The trailing cape with thousands of swarovski crystals represent thousands of Batanguenos who is with me as I walk with this dress. Each step I take, is a step closer in resurrecting our faith that one day soon, we will be triumphant once more.
We also chose the color red as a manifestation of the burning desire of all Batanguenos to rise from the ashes.

Outgoing titleholder Cyrille Payumo of the Philippines was “present” to see her successor.
Below is a video of the announcement of winners.
It would be an understatement to say that I really enjoyed the #Upcoming Episode 7 of #PageantryNorms Season 3 with Mr Global Philippines 2019 Ricky Gumera and Charles Nathan of Bragais Shoes fame.
This has got to be my naughtiest one yet.
Watch out for their movie #AnakNgMachoDancer and its digital premiere on KTX.ph on January 30, 9pm.
A #Grand Wish
With Miss Grand International now confirmed to happen in Phuket, Thailand on March 27, 2021, will a Philippine representative be announced by Bb. Pilipinas soon?
I certainly hope it will be Aya Abesamis. Fingers tightly crossed for that! 🤞
No other potential bet comes close to her readiness in taking on the job.

“Gone from our sight, but never from our hearts.”
The pageant industry is deeply saddened by the recent demise of John De La Vega.
His passing will be felt by many people.
May his heart and soul find peace and comfort. 🙏🏼
PS. John’s final days were ladened with abdominal pain and fever – Cholecystolithiases (inflammation of the Gallbladder wall) and Cholecystitis (Gallstones).
Behold your #Binibini31 Graciella Lehmann of Oriental Mindoro in her Bb. Pilipinas National Costume created by Joemel Calma:
(Notes from the designer)
The creation’s inspiration stems from the vision of a female centurion or warrior demonstrating exemplary and heroic qualities of a Filipina bravely leading the century.
Characterized by Roman costumes, tunics, and vivid metallic embellishments that have been crafted by local artisans and woodcarvers of Paete, Laguna, this reclaimed and recycled warrior ensemble symbolizes women’s ability to exhibit their courage and stand up for their rights and core feminine values.
It is a colorful festival celebrated on the island of Oriental Mindoro in the Philippines. The centurion masks depict the story of the Passion of the Christ.
Possessing as much strength, determination and fortitude as any man, they are willing to take up arms and fight for a cause with relentless perseverance.

There’s always a good reason why the late great Audrey Hepburn is one of the most beloved actresses and fashion icons of all time. And in these new photos of Miss Earth Water 2020 Roxanne Baeyens, she channels the beautiful screen legend in black-and-white.
