Turning sight to all the years and accomplishments past, the pages of the Binibing Pilipinas magazine serve as a commemorative showcase of the institution’s rich history and exciting future.
Over the past 50 years, Binibing Pilipinas has produced countless beauty queens that have brought pride to the Philippines in various international competitions. Among those that have accomplished this unique feat are Miss Universe 1969: Gloria Diaz, Miss Universe 1973: Margie Moran-Floirendo, and Miss International 2005: Precious Lara Quigaman.
As such, the magazine provides a look at how the Philippines’ participation in the institution has since evolved to produce the beauty queens that grace the cover—Miss Universe 2012 First Runner-up: Janine Tugonon, Miss Universe 2010 Fourth Runner-up: Venus Raj, Bb. Pilipinas International 2012 Nicole Schmitz, Bb. Pilipinas Tourism 2012 Katrina Dinmaranan, and Bb. Pilipinas 2012 First Runner-up Elaine Moll. They are aptly portrayed alongside the country’s natural beauty, as their stunning looks perfectly complement the gorgeous islands of El Nido, Palawan.
From the reign of these beauties, the Binibing Pilipinas magazine turns the spotlight to the candidates of 2013, who take their turn donning retro swimsuits that past Bb. Pilipinas queens once wore. Featured in this editorial are Bb. Pilipinas Universe 2013 Ariella Arida, Bb. Pilipinas International Bea Rose Santiago, Bb. Pilipinas Tourism Joanna Cindy Miranda, Bb. Pilipinas Supranational Mutya Johanna Datul, and Bb. Pilipinas 2013 First Runner-up Pia Wurtzbach.
