In true Binibining Pilipinas fashion, the event was coupled with segments of fashion shows. Before the talent competition, the girls sashayed on stage wearing clothes and shoes from Jag Jeans and World Balance.
After the talent showdown, the candidates graced the stage in their beautifully designed red dresses as they were serenaded by Kapamilya singer and Pilipinas Got Talent season 1 finalist Markki Stroem.
It is the first time that Binibining Pilipinas held the talent competition at the New Frontier Theater. The event was made special, as part of proceeds from the ticket sales were donated to the Philippine Red Cross – Quezon City Chapter.
