THE BINIBINING PILIPINAS & ITS CROWNS | MISS INTERNATIONAL
Did you know that the first Miss International title holder is Madame Stella Marquez-Araneta, the chairman of Binibining Pilipinas Organization? And today, she deserves the spotlight.
MARÍA STELLA MÁRQUEZ-ARANETA,
the First Miss International Title Holder
At age 23, she competed in the first Miss International pageant held in Long Beach, California in 1960, becoming the first Miss International, and also the first Latin American titleholder in that line of pageants.
Miss International is a Japanese-based international beauty pageant organized by The International Culture Association. The pageant advocacy is to achieve a world where women can live with positivity, inner strength and individuality. The slogan of Miss International is to “correct understanding of Japan in the international community” and “the realization of world peace through mutual understanding”. The Miss International Organization has opened doors to 6 Filipinas, making Philippines the second country to win the most number of Miss International titles.
Today, Mrs. Araneta is working as the chairman of the Binibining Pilipinas Charities Incorporated for more than 5 decades. BPCI is the organization that gave the Philippines pride and honor in the world of pageantry.
