A week before the coronation night, the 40 candidates vying for the coveted crown roved the streets of Araneta in the annual Parade of Beauties on Saturday, April 9.
Clad in rainbow colored swimsuits and headdresses decorated with summer blooms, the ladies were all smiles while touring around Araneta on Miata cars. The parade began at the Novotel Manila Araneta Center and ended at the Smart-Araneta Coliseum. The swimsuits were designed by Julius Jaguio and Domz Ramos of Pegarro Swim.
Three Binibining Pilipinas reigning queens were also present during the motorcade: Miss International Top 10 Janicel Lubina, Miss Intercontinental 2015 1st Runner-up Christy McGarry, and Miss Supranational 2015 semifinalist Rogelie Catacutan.
The Parade of Beauties is the last major activity for the candidates before the big night on April 17 at Smart-Araneta Coliseum. The tickets to the April 17 finals of Bb.Pilipinas are now available on Ticketnet. The prices go for as low as PhP220 for General Admission (Free Seating) to PhP8,050 for VIP (Reserved Seating).
KC Concepcion is set to host the event with actor Xian Lim. She last hosted the pageant in 2011. The coronation night will have a delayed telecast in ABS-CBN Sunday’s Best.
