Parade of gowns: Miss Philippines Earth 2016

At Land Bank Plaza Auditorium last May 14, Saturday, 48 gorgeous Miss Philippines Earth 2016 aspirants in exuberant gowns walked down the runway for the evening gown competition.

The designer gowns showcasing true Filipino beauty and talent were mostly in red - and a glorious variety of ball gowns, Serpentina dresses, mermaid dresses, caped sleeves, and also other unconventional silhouettes in high heels filled the evening.

Check out some of the photos from last Saturday’s evening gown competition:

Despite all looking beautiful in their own chosen gowns, only five stood out for the judges during the evening gown competition.
