28 Jan 2020 | Priya Bhardwaj

For Philippines, 2019 was not an impressive year, at least not as much as the pageant fanatics hoped, as the country failed to win a crown or a runner-up position in the major big 4 international pageants for the first time since 2007. With a lot of expectations that were laid on the beauty queens who represented Philippines at various international pageants, it seemed like the beauties ran out of luck but not of dedication and hard work.

While all these Filipina beauties did an incredible job of representing their country at respective pageants, there were a few who made a lasting impact even if they could not bring a crown home or even win a national representation. So without further ado, here are the Top 10 Filipina beauties in a decreasing order, in our opinion, of 2019 –
