Bb. Pilipinas 2013 (20th Update): The National Costumes

Other than the press introduction, the candidates of Bb. Pilipinas 2013 sashayed their chosen national costumes. Presented were the regular terno and baro’t saya but some of the ladies gave a very unique interpretation of a Filipina national costume. I will talk more about their choices on a separate post.

I mentioned to you that for the past three years, winners of the Talent Competition ended up with a crown during the finale. Same thing can’t be said with the National Costume. Past winners were:

We all know by now that Nicole and Venus won a crown after their pageants but Elizabeth failed to penetrate the first cut. Who will follow the footsteps of these ladies? Will the fate of the 2013 Best in National Costume winner be the same with Venus and Nicole? Or will she be the next Elizabeth Clenci? One thing is for sure though, the national costume event of Bb. Pilipinas continues to be a platform for local designers to show their creativity and talent! If only Mdm. Stella Araneta will use one of the costume for our queens’ international competition….

So, here are the national costumes of the Bb. Pilipinas 2013 candidates. Surprisingly, Binibini 7 (Ivy Gonzales) did not compete in this round. She was at the press presentation. What happened?!?  [UPDATE] One of our readers left a comment explaining that Ivy was at school taking her final exam. Ivy is a Law Student. If this is indeed true, I hope that she will be an inspiration to everyone on how she put value to her education! KUDOS…

The pictures below are in chronological order based on their Binibini numbers.
