IN PHOTOS: BYS x Miss World Philippines 2018 Fashion Show
When two beauty industry giants collaborate, you just know something powerful is bound to happen – which is precisely what took place when Miss World Philippines and cosmetics brand BYS collaborated for the second year in a row this year’s pageant.
On October 1, BYS and Miss World Philippines hosted the 2018 BYS Holiday Presentation at the Atrium of Resortworlds Manila featuring the 40 official MWP candidates and hosted by Laura Lehmann, Miss World Philippines 2017.
The ladies wore basic sheath, cowl neckline dreses in colors complementing each of the 4 Holiday Palettes. All the ladies accessorized with various custom headpieces.
The runway presentation was reminiscent of intimate salon fashion shows where the models walked directly in front of the seated guests. It was a very fitting choice because the audience was able to see their make-up up close.
The pageant’s 40 contestants had earlier attended a BYS make-up seminar with celebrity make-up artist Jigs Mayuga.
Here is a closer look at the beautiful MWP candidates in the BYS Holiday Presentations looks.
