I didn’t stay long enough to catch the announcement of the winners among the beauteous sagalas that graced the Flores de Mayo 2009 last May 24 at the Mall of Asia. So here they are: (via Unilever Philippines)
Shown (from left) are: Anna Marie Burgos, awarded Miss Cream Silk; Janina San Miguel, crowned La Flor de Manila; Reissa Ileto, bagging the night’s most coveted Rosa Mystica; Andrea Abesamis, as the Reina de las Flores; and Glennifer Perido, as Miss Ponds.
Here are some pics of the winning girls which I didn’t include the last time, and their exquisitely-designed ternos.
Miss Cream Silk wore a predominantly off-white terno with swirls of petals on the skirt. It looked good enough for a Filipiniana-themed wedding.
Miss Pond’s wore a fetching aqua blue gown, accented again by flowers.
This brocade gown won honors for designer Jan Garcia, and sagala Andrea Abesamis, voted this year’s Reyna de las Flores.
Incidentally, photographers who took pictures of the event have until May 29 to submit their entries to the Flores de Mayo 2009 Photo Contest. Submissions must be printed in full-color, 8 x 10 format, with an accompanying receipt worth P250 of any Unilever product.
Prizes at stake are P50,000, P25,000 and P15,000 plus gift packs and a special prize of P10,000.
