Bb. Pilipinas Gold (2013) Coronation Night was held last Sunday, April 14, in SMART Araneta Coliseum. This event was the most awaited by every Filipino because of the celebration of Filipina Beauty.

For me, it was an ultimate eye-candy event! It does not just have BEAUTY & BRAINS written all over the competition, but really… it was all about FASHION.

I was so excited to see their EVENING GOWNS! I don't know why, but as a designer, the greatest challenge was always 'couture'. The fit, color, design, execution, and how it was worn makes all the difference.

So I made a list of my 10 BEST Evening Gowns that night. Some were very simple, some were… I don't know what to describe them… frustrating? But hey, these are all my personal opinions. SO just bear with me.

My criteria? A gown that I would wear myself. As you can see, I am fond of "neutral" shades, I'm just so inlove with it lately. I love feminine details and intricate embellishments. I also consider the "perfect fit". It has always been a big deal that your gown compliments your body type.

But ofcourse, I am 100% in agreement with the judges when Mutya Johanna Datul was awarded as Best in Long Gown. She really carried her gown very well. Very confident and very beautiful. (She won Miss Photogenic by the way.) In this competition, sometimes it's really not about what or who you're wearing, but it's about who's wearing and how she wears it. She deserves that award. :)

Fifty candidates were chosen to compete for the crown. Five major titles were given that night which were won by these women, respectively:
