Name: Rachel Louise Peters
Strengths: a socialite face on a killer bod with a very articulate mind. You just cannot ignore that Paulina Vega/ Gabriela Isler body proportion of hers. She has the “Sports Illustrated cum Victoria’s Secret” bod… The fact that she communicates well is another reason to keep this girl on top of our minds.
Weaknesses: angular Caucasian facial features that needs to be softened and ‘Filipina-ized‘. Her features reminded me of Gabriela Isler’s strong angular face during her stint at Miss Venezuela but came more ravishing when she competed in Miss Universe. Rachel would need a styling that would bring out her best features as there is more that can be done to make her look more international with her appeal. She is transformable.
Best Suited for: Miss Universe Philippines, she is perhaps one of the total packages in this batch. She has everything going on for her.
Most Likely will be: either Binibining Pilipinas Intercontinental or Miss Universe Philippines.
One of the Binibining Pilipinas girls that is majorly overlooked this year is Ana Patricia Asturias. This lovely 5’7” lass with a masculine nickname (she is also called Patrik) has one of the more interesting faces in this year’s competition.
She might have flown mostly under the radar, she has nevertheless could be a shoo-in for the semis this year. I first noticed this entrepreneur during the release of the official swimsuit shots of the girls for her very interesting face as well as one of the girls who actually had one of the best swimsuit photos. This Interior Designer graduate from the University of Santo Tomas has one of the more arresting faces in the competition. She registers well in photos and in videos. Patrik reminds me of the gorgeous Binibining Pilipinas Tourism 1994 Jeannette Fernando, not because of their facial similarities but rather of their strong quiet presence. Both girls have the stately aura and a regal presence about them that is quite uncommon in this age. Hopefully that would be noticed by the powers at be and the judges come coronation night.
I do wish luck on this lady as the Binibining Pilipinas 2017 coronation night approaches, I hope a semifinal or a runner up placement for her would be in her fate… though I wouldn’t object her taking any of the titles at stake too.
