Sashes&Scripts 1st Binibining Pilipinas 2017 LeaderBoard

Sashes&Scripts have always been a bit of an independent mind when it comes to its reviews and picks. So it is to no surprise that the first leaderboard following the press presentation would probably come in as different from the Sash Factor SashPicks. After the Binibining Pilipinas press presetation, here are Sashes&Scripts’ pick for the titles at hand…

But before we reveal the ladies, here are several darkhorses that we all should pay attention to in the competition:
Dindi Pajares – this FA from Philippine Airlines has one of the best body proportions among the candidates. Standing tall at 5’9″, this lady can still make a killing despite a relatively quiet presence this year (as compared to her participation last year).
Nelda Ibe – one of the taller girls this year, this 5’9″ licensed pilot should make waves in the competition. I think Nelda needs to trim down a bit more to that it will go well with her tall frame.
Chanel Olive Thomas – one of those that we can mark as underdog in the competition. I am just waiting for her to start getting more press. 
Elizabeth Clenci – she moves with refined grace on the ramp and interviews extremely well. Cebu’s bet to this year’s Binibining Pilipinas is one that should be a shoo-in for the semis.
Maria Gail Tobes – one of those with refreshingly beautiful and friendly faces in the batch. Despite a weak presentation skill, I still think that she has the potential to be a winner.
Liezel Ramos – I really hope she dials the sex appeal a notch or two. Her projection still needs some work to look more elegant. The goods are there, she just needs to work it…

The press presentation was truly a remarkable way to observe the girls in the competition. During the said event here are several ladies who stood out among the sea of beauties (at least for me). 
The WildcardCharmaine Elima – at this point in time,  I am not sure where to place her for now as her dusky beauty might not be a perfect match with the Miss International title nor with Miss Intercontinental which favors taller girls, but might be good several other titles. Nevertheless, she is still somebody to watch out for.
Binibining Pilipinas Grand InternationalAngelique de Leon – send someone with loads of personality and quick-wit to the Bangkok-based pageant and Angelique is just that girl. You won’t feel worried as she is more than equipped: she is very articulate and only needs a little more polish/ refinement on her pasarela.
Binibining Pilipinas GlobeKatarina Rodriguez – with a face like hers, it would be difficult for the Canadian-based pageant to ignore her. While her walk surely needs a bit more refining and a little more power, it cannot be argued that she is one of the few girls that photograph well.
Binibining Pilipinas IntercontinentalChristagale Borja – if any girl could survive working in one of the fashion capitals of the world, then she surely can survive anything you can throw at her. She is one of the tallest girls in the pageant (just a smidge below 5’10”) and if history is to be based on, tall, exotic and magnetic girls like her do well in this German-based pageant.
Binibining Pilipinas SupranationalSirene Sutton – send a topmodel for this Victoria’s Secret fashion-show-like pageant. Sirene with her wealth of experience on the ramp would not look lost on the runways of the Polish-owned contest. Plus her European good looks would definitely be a major asset in the competition.
Binibining Pilipinas InternationalMariel de Leon – for now she is my pick for the Miss International title. Her refined personality will be a good match with the more traditional and reserved pageant. Not to mention that her background as an opera singer would be something that the Japanese would appreciate.
Miss Universe PhilippinesRachel Peters – she has the Miss Universe body of Paulina Vega and Gabriela Isler with the face of Solenn Heussaff. Any pageant girl would kill for a body like hers and her body proportions is the bomb! This Australian-educated lass would be a great hit if the Miss Universe pageant is to be held in Perth, Australia this year (as rumors have it).
