My Fifteen Picks for the Bb. Pilipinas Swimsuit Shots by Raymond Saldaña
Yes, the Binibinis really did make it as fine models for Photographer Raymond Saldaña who was able to bring out the best in practically all forty of them. Hard to find a lot of fault in the BPCI-uploaded images because they were perfected for public viewing. And so, I am now presenting the fifteen (sixteen in the video above) who stood out in my eyes. These choices are based solely on the shots, no more, no less.
1-5: Maxine Medina, Kylie Verzosa, Nicole Cordoves, Maria Gigante and Nichole Manalo
6-10: Jessica Gonzales, Kimberle Mae Penchon, Apriel Smith, Angelique de Leon and Angelica Alita
11-15: Dindi Pajares, Paula Rich Bartolome, Joanna Eden, Jennifer Hammond and Ria Rabajante
My Fifteen Favorite Glamshots for Bb. Pilipinas 2016 by Owen Reyes
Let’s go to the Glamshots now. It’s a pity that there are only thirty-eight (38) available because those of new Binibini 1 Gail Ventic and Binibini 20 Geisha Naganuma have not been shot by Owen Reyes owing to their late entry into the game. It could only mean that both Janelle Olafson and Kim Ross Delos Santos already had theirs.
Now this part is trickier in the sense that the photographs may be defined by viewers differently in terms of the word “glam”. But my operational definition for glam is fully made-up, sophisticated and radiantly glowing with alternating red-carpet aura and celebrity appeal.
Here are my Fifteen (15) ‘Glammed-Up’ Binibinis now.
1-5: Kylie Verzosa, Kimberle Penchon, Maxine Medina, Apriel Smith and Nicole Cordoves
6-10: Nichole Manalo, Jehza Huelar, Angela Fernando, Angelica Alita and Jessica Gonzales
11-15: Dindi Pajares, Sheena Dalo, Ria Rabajante, Anjellica Lopez and Angelique de Leon
Let me reiterate that these selections are based only on the photos taken by Raymond Saldaña and Owen Reyes. No other considerations were made outside of what the images publicly proclaim.
Who are the names on your short-lists, dear readers? 🙂
In summary now…
