National Costumes Level Up for Binibining Pilipinas 2019

These are on a whole new level of spectacular.

There's only one word fitting to describe these looks from the 2019 Binibining Pilipinas candidates: showstopping. In a diverse show of our nation's colorful cultural heritage, the country's 40 hopefuls debuted their official National Costume portraits on the pageant's Facebook page

While many of the girls chose the classic terno (with dramatic individual twists, of course—zoom in on all those feathers and florals), others opted for powerful representations of Philippine ethnic groups, donning handmade tribal fabrics and pieces meant to symbolize their respective region's pride. There were also majestic nods to pivotal points in our history, complete with warrior accoutrements like swords, spears, and gilded armor.

If you want to see the outfits up close, you can drop by the National Costume Fashion Show on May 29 at the New Frontier Theater and the Binibining Pilipinas coronation night on June 9 at the Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City.
