Most Jag-Worthy Bodies in the Bb. Pilipinas 2014 Fashion Show!


Okay, I’ll spit it out. Parang mas mahirap itago ang mga ‘flaws’ pag naka-jeans compared to bikini. What do you think?

While I love and respect all body shapes, a great physique that looks fabulous in jeans, a bikini or a gown means plus points when competing in a pageant. But aside from physique, stage presence is equally, maybe even more important than one’s shape or facial beauty. Don’t forget, being a Bb. goes beyond the body shape!

So I made my top choices with the above in mind:

My Top 3 Jag-Worthy Bodies go to:

#35 Yvethe Santiago, #18 Ellore Noelle Punzalan and #4 Parul Shah.

35. Yvethe Santiago

35. Yvethe Santiago

O mai golay! This is the best I have ever seen of Yvethe Marie Santiago. Loved the hair flip she gave at the start of her catwalk. She was stunning, fierce, wild… lahat na ng adjective for a beautiful wild creature of the jungle, nasa kanya na! Styling was excellent, emotion was brilliant…  and what can I say except that I absolutely hate Yvethe Santiago for being able to fit into those micro-jeans! LOL!

18. Ellore Noelle Punzalan

18. Ellore Noelle Punzalan

The ‘elloring’ Ellore Punzalan gave a cool catwalk in a pair of Jag jeans that seemed inhumanly small. Even more astounding is that she fit perfectly in them! One of the best bodies in the bunch, Ellore is also very studied as a mannequin and knows how to make walking on stilts seem like a breeze. Bravo!

4. Parul Shah

4. Parul Shah

Curvy but with rock-hard abs, Parul Shah is shining brighter than ever! If she was holding back last year when she first joined Bb. Pilipinas (she made it to the semis) this year she’s giving out more of herself. But I’m convinced that this dark beauty from the east is still hiding some extra oomph somewhere in that gorgeous body of hers. When will I see Parul giving 100%? Don’t hold back girl…  your victory depends on it!

MAJOR SPECIAL MENTION:

#21 Raquel Kabigting

21. Raquel Kabigting

21. Racquel Kabigting

Now THIS is how to walk with drama on the catwalk. Racquel Kabigting made me think for a moment that I was watching Fashion Week in Milan! But I found it odd that she was the only one in a swimsuit; I wonder why. I really would like to see her in jeans just like the other girls. Nevertheless, she was visually stunning so I’m giving her Raquel Kabigting a MAJOR special mention here…  her legs deserve it!

My next 7 jean-worthy standouts are:

#1 Julian Aurine Flores, #8 Pia Wurtzbach, #13 Kris Tiffany Janson, #14 Emma Tiglao, #23 Nichole Marie Manalo, #25 MJ Lastimosa and #30 Joy Gangan (yes they are listed in ascending numeric order because I can’t seem to choose whom I like the most among them!)

1. Julian Aurine Flores

1. Julian Aurine Flores

Bb. Pilipinas 2014 opens with the fresh-faced Julian Aurine Flores whom I simply adore. I know it’s difficult being first on stage but Julian has the kind of beauty that sticks to you like an LSS song (minus the irritation, of course, lol!) Built with just the right feminine proportions, Julian Flores topped her walk with a dreamy smile.

*****

8. Pia Wurtzbach

8. Pia Wurtzbach

On ecan never accuse Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach of holding anything BACH! She’s definitely on the prowl for the crown and has all her claws out for the victory. But don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying Pia Wurtzbach is the catty kind. She’s just inherently competitive. If there’s one thing that will propel this girl onto the throne, it would be her fierce attitude which was on full display as she showed off her pair of Jag jeans in the Araneta Coliseum. S-E-X-X-Y!

*****

13. Kris Tiffany Janson

13. Kris Tiffany Janson

Ultra-feminine. All-girl. Zero-testosterone. Kris Tiffany Janson came out in powder-puff blue which suited her aura of pure girly-ness. And if you say there is no such thing as ‘pure girly-ness’ then this girl just invented it! A definite stand-out during the Bb. Pilipinas 2014 Fashion show!

*****

14. Emma Tiglao

14. Emma Tiglao

You can never go wrong with skinny jeans with legs like that! Emma Tiglao continues to capture my attention with her smooth walk and pageant-perfect styling. The cream-colored jeans on her sun-kissed skin made me think of my favorite Venti brewed coffee with half & half!

*****

23. Nichole Marie Manalo

23. Nichole Marie Manalo

For all her sweet looks, Nichole Marie Manalo is a scary rival. Definitely NOT to be underestimated. Could it be that her kind of beauty appeals to a wider base of fans? That her beauty is less divisive than some of the more popular girls? Whatever gives her that extra appeal, all I can say is that I really love her look and her undulating wineglass curves…

*****

25. MJ Lastimosa

25. MJ Lastimosa

Ooooh, yes, lovely choice of Jag wear for the curvy MJ Lastimosa who was greeted by loud cheers from her many fans in the audience. She has become a symbol for many of those who are chasing elusive dreams. This is her third time to join Bb. Pilipinas and her last hurrah. But there is no sign of worry on her brow, just ‘fabulosity’!

*****

30. Joy Gangan

30. Joy Gangan

For me, Joy Gangan has a Mutya Datul vibe going on… she also reminds me occasionally of Jennifer Barrientos. Joy came out with her long-legs, sailing without a bend in her knee and with a smile that seemed to say, “wala lang, happy lang ako!” What I like about this beauty is her flat belly with rounded hips that jut out slightly.
