Binibining Pilipinas 2015

by: Psychic August

The Binibining Pilipinas (BPCI) 2015 batch of beauties to international beauty pageants like Miss Universe, Miss International, Miss Supranational, Miss Intercontinental will fare much like how their predecessors did this 2014:  they will fail to secure the top crown in these pageants.

While many will be hopeful that at least one of the candidates fielded by BPCI in 2015 will finally get hold of the top crown in international pageants, they will all be disappointed even more. We will see the uproar of netizens and the other more silent pageant fans being stoked to higher levels than what was just recently witnessed when Philippines' bet  for the Miss Universe 2014 title,  Mary Jean Lastimosa, failed to cut the Top 5.

There will be more clamor for reforms in the BPCI - that Madam Stella Marquez de Araneta retires from her top post, that at least BPCI starts accepting Filipino fashion designers to do the gowns for Binibining Pilipinas international bets, etc.

But I see some light at the end of the tunnel.  If, and only if, there is enough public clamor to do so, BPCI will consider the works of some top Filipino fashion designers for its pageant bets this year, and even to the extent of, due to very insistent force, putting aside Colombian designer Alfredo Barazza, or  lose the support of majority of it's local patrons.

To conclude, although I still see that 2015 will still, all the more, be a lackluster year for Philippine bets to international beauty pageants, not just from those of BPCI, but also those from other local pageant organizations, the year will at least introduce some good precedents for the pageant scene in the next coming years.

And BPCI chairperson Madam Stella Marquez Araneta will still keep her post.
