Exactly a week ago today, Leren Mae M. Bautista was still one of forty #Binibinis dreaming of winning a Bb. Pilipinas crown. The dream came true shortly after. Now, she will be always known as #BinibiningPilipinasGlobe2019 – a responsibility she is whole-heartedly committing herself to.

Up to now, I have constantly teetered between #Binibini26 Emma Tiglao and #Binibini12 Gazini Ganados on who deserves to win a good crown more than the other. They appear to be almost in the same mold and impact.
For now, let’s discuss about the Kapampangan beauty Emma and her chances of finally realizing a lifelong pageant dream in Bb. Pilipinas 2019.

It won’t be long till we get to see new photos of Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray in Manhattan, NY. After all, she will be residing here for an entire reign.
Above and left are images of our Queen when she visited the Big Apple last September to walk for the Sherri Hill fashion show.
She was styled by Vhee Co and Francis Chee in all the photos.
Meanwhile, below is a short clip of our Queen taken earlier this week.
While holding on to the crown from falling off her head, it took Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray just nine (9) seconds to utter her heartfelt gratitude to all the Filipinos when she was whisked away from inside the Impact Arena to her very first Press Conference last Monday morning.
Even in a hurry, she articulates herself in such a sincere way.
Tomorrow, the Preliminary Competition of Miss Supranational 2018 will take place in Poland. And our Miss Supranational Philippines Jehza Huelar is definitely up in her game plan. She is getting favorable reviews from most everyone in the host city of Karpacz. With the momentum on her side, she will present herself to the judges oozing with confidence and determination to become our 2nd big winner in the contest. Miss Supranational 2013 Mutya Datul is present and I am sure she will give our Queen a few precious tips on how to do better in her performance.
In all the photos above, Jehza Huelar is looking edgy and gorgeous in Mark Neto Diaz shots wearing a Mark Tamayo “Toile de Juoy” dress with Bragais heels. And below, she slips into a Yong Davalos swimwear ensemble.

On a sidenote, I am just pleased that Julius Pegarro Jaguio has upped his swimsuit design aesthetics. He is really evolving in his craft.
