It’s pageant season once again and with return of Binibining Pilipinas on its 58th run as the longest running pageant in the Philippines. Many pageants have gone by such as Miss Universe 2022 and Miss World 2022, where we have named two new headlining queens. For the former, it is Celeste Cortesi, as for the latter it is Gwendolyne Fourniol. Now, we’re on our toes to find out who our next Miss International will be on the coronation night of Binibining Pilipinas.

With so many pageants and beauty queens coming our way, we can’t help but take a step back to appreciate the creatives who helped out our country bets. Let’s not forget that a beauty queen is not made in a day. She gets help from her makeup artists, hair stylists, pageant coaches, and fashion stylists. These are the people who stuck by our queens and helped them win the crown. If you aren’t familiar with our queen makers, then here is a good place to start. Here’s a rundown on stylists who have dressed our queens in beautiful and meaningful outfits for their pageant run.

Perry Tabora
