Take a closer look at each of the candidates and let us know who your early bets are. (P.S.: I do apologize for not being able to capture nine candidates as they did not pose at the center of the stage. Their official head shots would have to do for now)
The Organizing Team
Founded by the SHS-B Batch 1985 Foundation, Inc. and Bb. Sugbu Charity Foundation, Inc., Binibining Cebu has proven to be a platform for today’s young women from all walks of life to express their social issues, talents, and unique cultural heritage.
This year will see a few new personalities who will elevate the pageant to even greater heights. Overall director is Ahwel Paz, a multi awarded ABS-CBN producer and director, who has staged several pageants and international shows. He will work with celebrated choreographer and production manager Val Sandiego, the man behind the award-winning Sandiego Dance Company. Stage design and creative direction will still be by international designer Kenneth Cobonpue, while Cary Santiago will oversee the complete fashion and wardrobe styling.
Jojo Bragais, a name synonymous to the nude platform pageant heels, which have been the official shoes of the Binibining Pilipinas pageant since 2015, will provide the girls’ footwear. He has dressed the feet of amazing women such as Catriona Gray, Maxine Medina, and Rachel Peters, among others. Official accessories and jewelry are by Christopher Munar, who is no stranger to Binibining Pilipinas and various beauty queens and celebrities. PauLina by Mikee Andrei, who is the official resort wear for Miss World Philippines, Binibining Pilipinas, and other national pageants, will provide the candidates’ swimwear.
The Binibining Cebu 2019 Coronation Night will be on Friday, November 15, 2019, 6pm at the Pacific Grand Ballroom, Waterfront Cebu City Hotel and Casino.
Also not to be missed is the Swimwear and Long Gown Competition on Wednesday, October 16, 2019, 6pm at Mandani Bay. Meanwhile, the candidates will have their closed-door on November 10.
