Pageant followers of Bb. Pilipinas 2021 are saying that the fight for the Bb. Pilipinas International crown is likely to be between Maureen Montagne and Hannah Arnold. And I tend to agree.
These two ladies represent two different kinds of tenderness that could suit up for the taste of the Miss International Organizers in Japan.
Maureen could be packaged in the mold of Bea Rose Santiago, while Hannah is seen as lite versions of Lara Quigaman-cum-Kylie Verzosa.
I feel that the level of sweetness should be there – not in excess but with the right balance that would fit the formula of success.
Of course, I cannot discount someone like Gabrielle Basiano just yet because she simply has one of the most beautiful faces among the 34 Binibinis. But I am seeing this tall beauty from Borongan as hitting the template of Miss Grand International more closely.
The buzz is that the Finals of Bb. Pilipinas 2021 may possibly happen this coming June – either early or later part of the sixth month. Let’s just wait for BPCI to confirm the specifics.

Pleased to share with our fun Episode 7 of Pageantry Norms Season 4 with “Binibinis Back in Action Part 3” and the quartet of Shanon Tampon, Meiji Cruz, Shaira Rona and Alexandra Faith Garcia.
Below is the video.
Following the departure outfit of Miss Universe Philippines 2020 Rabiya Mateo (left photo), Look 002 is here. Now the question is: when and where will she be seen wearing this beautiful ensemble for the 69th Miss Universe? That’s for all of us to find out!
The Designer is Marlon Tuazon of Pampanga as styled by #teamrainxem (Rainier Joseph Dagala and Em Millan) with associates Rio Camantigue and Elaine Villapando.
Do read the prepared look card above to know more about the outfit and the designer.
I am loving the approach that the team is doing for our Queen. And with the spotlight being equally shared with new upcoming designers from all over the country, the next looks are worth looking forward to.
The #Filipina crown of Miss Universe Philippines 2020 Rabiya Mateo may have been left here in the country.
But the rightful wearer is already acclimatizing in the US – soon in the host state and city – before she starts locking horns with the most beautiful ladies of the universe.
All aiming to become the 69th Miss Universe.

Some of you might be wondering about the departure outfit worn by Miss Universe Philippines 2020 Rabiya Mateo at the airport late yesterday afternoon.
The entire look is actually a collaboration of three homegrown brands. The top – courtesy of Chino Christopherson x Marc Rancy – is a Holy Mother of Pearls Barong (Perlas ng Silanganan Barong) which makes the wearer exude with bright confidence, power and fierceness. This is paired with the #MarcRancy trousers, with earrings from LVNA By Drake Dustin.
Styling by Team RainXEm (Rainier de Gala and Em Millan) with styling associates Rio Camantigue and Elaine Villapando.
Look who departed for the US earlier?
