New Philippine queens for 2015 were crowned last night at the Smart Araneta Coliseum in Manila. The top winner, Pia Wurtzbach, 25, was crowned Miss Universe Philippines 2015 and will compete in the next edition of Miss Universe. In the photo above, she is crowned by her predecessor Mary Jean Lastimosa. This year marks Wurtzbach's third try for the crown. 


The remaining top 7 include (from left to right): 2nd Runner-up Kimverlyn Suiza,  Bb. Pilipinas Tourism 2015 Ann Lorraine Colis, Bb. Pilipinas Intercontinental 2015 Christi Lynn McGarry, Wurtzbach, Bb. Pilipinas International 2015 Janicel Lubina, and 1st Runner-Up Hannah Sison

Fascinating data: McGarry had already competed in Miss Intercontinental 2010 where she placed in the top 15. It would be interesting to see if World Beauty Organization, the producers of Miss Intercontinental, will allow her to compete again. If not, then would BPCI swap her title with another girl? No international pageant has ever allowed a former contestant to compete again - at least not since 1985 when Holland's Jacqueline Schuman was allowed the second time and placed second runner-up (she had competed for the first time in 1982 but did not place.)  

Wurtzbach wears an elaborate costume designed by Albert Andrada during the national costume competition of Binibining Pilipinas 2015 pageant a week earlier.
