A beach pageant for Mrs. Philippines-Globe 2015

THE 4th Mrs. Philippines Globe Pageant crowned its new set of empowered beauty queens at an al fresco setting on Moonbay Beach in Subic Bay Freeport Zone, Zambales last Sunday (May 31st).

Chosen as Mrs. Philippines-Globe 2015 was Sherry Lou VillaseƱor, a professional make-up artist. She succeeded last year’s winner and Mrs. Globe finalist and Philanthropy Award recipient Janice Alop-Trillo, who also sat in the panel of judges.

VillaseƱor won P200,000 worth of prizes from pageant sponsors and the right to represent the Philippines at the next Mrs. Globe Pageant in Shenzhen, China in November.

Named as Woman of Substance 2015 was Maria Engracia de Villar-Maniago, a teacher at Casa Kalayaan International School. Runners-up were Mary Ann Ternora, first; Jhunie Grace Lagman, second; and Jonalyn Agustin, third.

Eighteen contestants from all over the Philippines vied for the coveted titles in the pageant that was hosted by Mrs. Philippines-Globe 2014 2nd runner-up Aileen Cavas and Al Gatmaitan, and staged by renowned fashion director Raymund Villanueva.

Former Bb. Pilipinas-Universe Joyce Ann Burton-Titular and Australian pageant organizer Karen Sabarre were among the judges.

According to Mrs. Philippines-Globe national pageant director Morena Carla Cabrera-Quimpo, “This year’s Mrs. Philippines-Globe candidates embody the real strength of a Filipina mother – a woman who’s not confined by stereotypes and is strong, generous and bold enough to fulfill her responsibilities as a mother and a wife without compromising her own dreams.”

Now on its 4th year, the prestigious pageant continues to recognize married women of substance; mothers and single moms as movers of society, and a symbol of inspiration and beauty through their achievements, life stories and charitable causes.

With a vision that is focused on empowerment, Mrs. Philippines-Globe also launched its newest online store for a cause. It offers elegant charms and accessories made from indigenous materials, where part of the proceeds will be donated to the W.I.N. Foundation, an outreach that specializes in self-esteem recovery for women and children faced with all kinds of abuse – physical, emotional, financial or spiritual.

Mrs. Philippines-Globe 2015 was presented by L’Oreal, Solane, Camayan Beach Resort, Ocean Adventure, Calchews, Working Mom Magazine and Bio Oil, in partnership with Island Rose, Coffee Scrub Delight, Easyrock 96.3, Bragais Shoes and Chef’s Avenue.
