Fresh from the Albay Astrodome, the winners of Daragang Magayon Festival 2015 were crowned in a festive celebration of beauty, elegance and all-around charm.
Top favorite Ma. Carmella Michelle Dolmer was named Daragang Magayon 2015. The 17 year-old beauty of Filipino-Canadian lineage led the competition from start to finish after getting a lion’s share of the special awards, aside from charming the star-studded panel of judges. She stands 5’8″.
With more training, I’m pretty sure we’ll see more of this drop dead gorgeous girl come 2016 in the nationals. She will be safely 18 by then and fully polished.
1st Runner-Up is Francia Layderos with 2nd Runner-Up honors going to Christine Arnedo. Named Daragang Magayon Turismo is Iana Villania, while Carmela Doma took home Daragang Magayon Almasor.
Hosted by Isabelle Daza, the board of judges included celebrities like Jaclyn Jose, Eula Valdez, Angel Aquino, Joyce Ann Burton-Titular and Lem Pelayo, together with model Rocky Salumbides, designers Jojie Lloren & Frederick Peralta plus special guest Geoff Eigenmann.
Congratulations are in order for Ma. Carmella Michelle Dolmer and her handler Jud Ballesteros who happens to be the regional mentor of Bb. Pilipinas 2015 Official Candidate Marvi Ann de Lima. I’m truly happy with this victory! 😀
