Our Final Top Picks for MISS WORLD PHILIPPINES 2015

Pre-pageant activities were done and now we present to you our Final Picks for Miss World Philippines 2015. 

powerhousePH Final Top Picks for Miss World Philippines 2015
Hillarie Parungao is still our top choice to win the title. Very consistent and she proved to everyone that she was not just a hype. She’s a legit front runner of the competition. Beautiful, very articulate and have a solid BWAP or Beauty With A Purpose which is “Katuwang – Fight Against Child Mortality. We believe that she can represent the Philippines well in Miss World 2015. 
Cassandra Naidas would be a great option as well to represent us in Miss World. She placed 5th on our First Top Picks but she managed to step up her game and prove that she’s worthy to be considered as a crown getter this year. Her oriental charm would be a hit in China. She’s tall and she can express herself very well.
Emma Tiglao is a front runner as well. She’s beautiful, great stage presence and can potentially win the title if she will be more natural and less rehearsed.
Mia Howell won the sub pageant held in Ilocos Sur last October 6 so I would not be surprised if she get a higher placement this Sunday. She’s undeniably gorgeous and Ive read that her academic credentials are superb so that would be a plus factor for her.
On the number 5 spot is Jedahliz Maltezo which for us is a mix of Megan Young – MJ Lastimosa beauty. Definitely a stand out as well in a sea of beauties.
Completing the our Final Top Picks for Miss World Philippines 2015 are:
6. Christelle Abello
7. Vianca Louise Marcelo
8. Avonlea Paraiso
9. Kiara Giel Gregorio
10. Mariah Nilo
Pageant night is on October 18, 2015 at The Theatre at Solaire  and it will be telecast via GMA 7 at 9:55 pm.

MIA ALLYSON HOWELL is Miss World Ilocos Sur 2015!

This year the official tourist destination of Miss World Philippines is Ilocos Sur where they will host the candidates from October 6-8. Last night the  Miss World Philippines 2015 Gala Night was held at the Vigan Convention Center, Vigan City, Ilocos Sur. The official 27 candidates competed in a sub-pageant where candidate #21 Mia Allyson Howell was crowned as Miss World Ilocos Sur 2015.

Last 2013 Megan Young was crowned as Miss World Laguna 2013 and last year Valerie Weigmann was crowned as Miss World CamSur 2014. Although this sub-pageant has no bearing to the official results of Miss World Philippines 2015 but the girls who won in previous years, eventually won the Miss World Philippines titles so does this mean that Mia Howell’s fate will be the same? Lets see on the coronation night this coming October 18 at the The Theatre at Solaire.

EDWIN UY for Parul Shah’s National Costume for Miss Grand International 2015!

Parul Shah – Miss Grand Philippines 2015 is now in Thailand competing in this year Miss Grand International. Yesterday before she left it was revealed that her National Costume will be made by one of the best designers here in the Philippines, Sir Edwin Uy.
Parul Shah with Edwin Uy

This team up is not new since Edwin Uy was the one who designed the National Costume of Parul during the National Costume competition of Binibining Pilipinas 2014 which is one of the best during that year. Their collaboration was amazing that time, so I can’t wait for what they can offer for us and the whole world comes the National Competition of Miss Grand International 2015.

 BPCI or Binibining Pilipinas Charity Incorporated and Stella Araneta made a great decision for choosing Edwin Uy so for that two thumbs up!.

powerhousePH first Top 10 picks for Miss World Philippines 2015

After the 27 Official candidates were presented to the media last Tuesday, we present to you our first top picks for this years Miss World Philippines 2015.
Our 1st Top 10 picks for Miss World Philippines 2015
 Leading the list is Hillarie Parungao, very charismatic, beautiful face and her pasarela is on point. Her height is our main concern which on the other hand is the advantage of Emma Tiglao who is next on our list. A 5’9″ stunner from Mabalacat, Pampanga. Her transformation from her Binibining Pilipinas stint was amazing. Closing in the gap quite fast are Mia Howell which I’m loving her styling and makeup, Christelle Abello and Cassandra Naidas. 
Two girls that could potentially switch places on our Top 5 list are Jeddahliz Maltezo who is very photogenic and Avonlea Paraiso, which we think should work on and improve her hair styling and make up. To complete the list are Mariah Nilo which we think could be the real spoiler of this year’s batch, Vianca Louise Marcelo and Kiara Giel Gregorio.

Special mention to Casey Ann Austria and Jackie Dulay. These two ladies have great potential as well to be on our list so we’re going to keep an eye on them.

Casey and Jackie

Let see who’s going to be consistent and if there’s any changes in our list after some pageant activities in the coming days.
