So the much awaited Evening Gown Competition of Miss World Philippines 2016 pageant saw an array stunning gowns donned by the equally stunning contestants. But there were few who won our hearts at the first glimpse itself. Below are the evening gowns that we think stood out among all the other gowns.
Contestant Number 5 and the first runner-up for the night, Arienne Louise Braga Calingo, pulled off a rosy blush Tube Ball Gown. The intricate stone work starting from the bust line to the waistline helped accentuate her curves. The colour brought out a natural pinkish glow to her face and the gown surely made her walk even more graceful.
The next evening gown that stuck our mind and our eyes was of contestant number 8 Sandra Raymundo Lemonon’s. First of all, the green colour suited her really well. The golden patch work all over the top neckline and arms gave the gown a lot more elegance and panache. Plus Sandra’s curvaceous body made the gown looked tailor made for her.

Now many might not agree to our opinion when we say that contestant number 9 Jan Hellen Villanueva’s gown was something that we would love to list among the favourites. But we do think it was something unique and different from the usual. The yellow coloured evening gown appeared more like a sarong, but still had an appeal to it. Instead of keeping it plane, the designer introduced it with a twist of embroidery and heavy work on the front, plus the one shoulder concept added volume to the overall simple outfit. Also the way Jan carried the outfit with her broad bright smile, covers up all the flaws, if there were any..!!
A twisted cold shoulder concept brought alive in the evening gown of contestant number 11 Shaina Lalaine Borreo Sazon. Shaina slayed the ramp as she walked the stage in this white simple front slit gown with a high pony. The gown did make her look like an international runway model. For us, the cape/ top attached shawl made the gown look classier.
When talking about the Nest gowns, how can we not mention the winner’s gown. That wine red coloured queenly evening gown of contestant number 13 and Miss World Philippines 2016 Catriona Elisa Magnayon Gray is something that we want in our wardrobe right now. Her off shoulder gown and that sensuous neckline with that lacy attached cape, GOD we just cannot get over her look. The colour and the silhouette definitely brought out her best during the finals. Don’t you think so..??

Now you might think what is so special about the gown of contestant number 18 Ivanna Kamil Suficiencia Pacis, right? But hold on there a second, can you believe that something so simple can be so elegant? Her powder blue gown might be the simplest out of all the gowns of the night, but still it stood out in the crowd because of its detailed shoulder work, and that think stoned empire waistline. Ivanna’s low bun was something that complimented her overall look.
Now this one reminds us of those cute looking delicious marshmallows. Yes contestant number 22 Jane Serrano Pactoranan wore an ice pink colour gown that had tiny feather detailing on the edges and all we could say was “Awwww”, yes that’s how pretty it made Jane look. That fish-cut silhouette and deep-cut neckline is something that gave her a more graceful and elegant look.
