The Grand Santacruzan 2013 of Binibining Pilipinas

Santacruzan is a Catholic religious activity that highlights the culmination of the month-long celebration of Flores de Mayo (literally Flowers of May) in the Philippines. The religious activity is held in honor of St. Helena and Constantine and their journey in finding the Holy Cross. Through the years, Santacruzan became a summer attraction in the Philippines where ladies in the barangay/municipality are invited to join as “Reyna” or Queens. Being invited (for me) usually means that that lady is heralded as one of the most beautiful in that place.

Since the activity, in a way, celebrates beauty, it is only fitting for Binibining Pilipinas to organize their own Santacruzan and participated by some of the most beautiful Binibinis. Here are some of the pictures that were taken in the Grand Santacruzan 2013 of Binibining Pilipinas earlier today.

A million thanks to the beautiful people behind Sash Factor ( for the pictures!

Just in case you are missing Ara Arida (Miss Universe Philippines 2013), it seems that she is not a Roman Catholic and doesn’t practice/believe in this activity. I hope her not joining has the nod of BPCI. 😀

Who won you over?

I really am in love with Mutya Datul.

She is just beautiful…
