LIST: Binibining Pilipinas 2019 winners, top 25, special awards, highlights

MANILA, Philippines — From 80 candidates, 40 were chosen as finalists at the 2019 Binibining Pilipinas coronation night held on June 9 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.

The show opened with the contestants dancing to Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray’s song, “Raise Your Flag.” Some of the top 25 candidates also lava-walked during the swimsuit competition as homage to Gray’s iconic walk.

Exes Anne Curtis and Richard Gutierrez surprised viewers when they entered the stage as the show’s hosts.

With the theme “Beyond Beauty,” the pageant is a pre-Independence Day celebration that introduced many changes — from the Free Speak preliminary segment, wherein candidates were asked to elaborate on a picked topic for less than 30 seconds; to flashing the designers’ names during the evening gown portion.

As she predicted, Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray was emotional in her speech for her final walk. “Forever Miss Philippines, forever a Binibini!” she said.

After over three months of charity work, photo shoots, interviews and travels all over the Philippines, the pageant has culminated with the following results:

For her “Fe Esperanza Caridad” or “Faith, Hope, and Charity” national costume hand-woven by Pampanga’s inmates, Emma Mary Tiglao of Pampanga has won this special award. She is the second to receive it after Catriona Gray, who later became Miss Universe 2018.

The award was made in honor of Jose “Pitoy” Moreno, the so-called “Fashion Czar of Asia,” first Filipino power designer, master of the Maria Clara, and a marketing maverick.
